Christmas Ornament — The Bump
TTC After a Loss

Christmas Ornament

I ordered a personalized ornament a couple of weeks ago. It's a tradition I started years ago to commemorate any big events in our lives. I've got ornaments for new jobs, finishing school, our 1st xmas together, etc. NOTHING happened this year. Tragic but true. No new job for me. No new house. No baby.

I decided to get an ornament because I feel that my losses can't just be brushed aside like they never happened. So although my lost pregnancies are not happy events they're still very important to me.

I wanted to acknowledge my lost LOs and at the same time start next year with a clean slate and some wishful thinking. Anyone else planning on getting an ornament too?

Re: Christmas Ornament

  • Beautiful ornament, I love the wording. Hopeful but still honest about what happened.

  • Thanks ladies. Unfortunately there wasn't enough room for EDDs and all that other jazz so I had to keep it simple. When I told DH I was ordering one he looked at me like this Indifferent  He doesn't understand the point behind it I guess.

  • I love it! I hope next year you can get one for your take home baby.
  • That's a beautiful ornament and I love that you had it personalized.

    This is the ornament I got in memory of my LO.  It's hard to tell but there is a small metal piece engraved with the year.

  • Where did you order this from? I love it.
  • I was thinking of doing the same. I look carefully at of my ornaments when I unpack them. It will be a good time to remember. Also planting a tree when we buy a house this winter.
