And i bought the teddy bear and an outfit for Baby B. We put my other 2 kids coming home outfits on teddy bears in their room and so we wanted to do it for our angel too. It is a yellow sleeper with white ducks and it says mommy loves you. Im really hoping this helps me move on a little and focus on my little girl and getting things ready for her.
Aw Beth, that is so sweet. If you like, you could post a picture, if it's not too personal. I think that's really wonderful.
I have a teddy bear I bought right after I lost Little Bud and there were many, many nights I slept with that bear. I still pull it out once in awhile when I'm feeling lonely or sad about her. I did a lot of other memorial stuff too but having something tangible can be a big help.
And don't feel bad if you're still grieving Baby B's loss while pregnant. You're not hurting your little girl at all, you're just honoring Baby B's memory. There is lots of time for joy when your little girl is born. And as time goes on, the pain will lessen.
Thank you. I will definatly post a picture when i can. Im planning on bringing the bear to the birth of our little girl that way they can be there together. Im sorry you have had your loss too but it is nice to have someone who understands.
That sounds like a great idea to bring it with you. That way you can also have it for comfort if you need it during L&D. I agree, I don't wish a loss on anyone, but if you have to go through it, it's nice to have someone else to talk to about it that has been through it too. I hope your little bear helps you!
I kept a u/s pic too, even though it was the one at the ER that showed no HB. That was the only pic I had so I put it into a shadow box that I did to remember the baby by. I had bought nothing for the baby at all when I lost it so I went out and bought some little baby booties, some newborn binkies, and stuff like that for the shadow box. I knitted a tiny sweater too. I also put in the positive pregnancy test that I had when I was first preg.
Here's my teddy:
It's a little Prayer Bear that recites "Now I lay me down to sleep". When I found it at the store it made me cry and I knew it was the right one to buy. It's kinda sweet cause my DS likes this bear for sleeping with, he calls it Tummy, because I told him you had to push his tummy to make it talk. I can only imagine he likes it so much because it smells like me from all the times I slept with it.
