What was the nicest thing done for you when you lost your baby?

probably the most meaningful thing done for me actually made me laugh so hard I cried.
I worked in a call center, and of course half the population was pregnant. When i went back to work afterwards, all my pregnant friends had stuffed their clothing to make them look just fat instead of pregnant. They looked so lumpy and amusing I couldn't help but laugh. But the fact they cared enough to try and save me the pain of seeing them pregnant, touched me deeply.
Another friend was due a month before me, and when she gave birth I went and saw my first baby since my loss. I walked in the hospital and she handed me her daughter and kissed me on the cheek and said "This should have been you. I didn't want my baby, but you talked me out of aborting her, and then you lost yours. This should be yours, but I'm glad she's mine. Thank you."
I think we cried for 20 minutes.. but it took me an hour to give her the baby back.
