I am having issues with when I should get a new siggie. How far into this pregnancy will I be before I feel comfortable asking for one? I felt comfortable enough to get a big sister shirt for M. I know you ladies understand this one. :/
I debated the exact same thing Rachel. i decided to get mine after I got my first ultrasound and we saw our little gummy bear's beating heart and saw baby wiggle around and move his/her arm. I was terrified to get one before then. I hate that any of us has to worry during pregnancy.
That's great that you got Marsi a T-shirt. that is how we are planning on telling some people but I still need to order Jacob's shirt.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
It is how I will announce on fb. We really don't have people around us we know to do anything in person. It is actually a shirt I won on a fb challenge and the lady was waiting until my BFP to make it.
I agree, after your first ultrasound sounds about right. I'm so happy for you Rachel Any updates? When is your first appointment? Eeeee!!
I should probably get on making a new one for myself... I just have a hard time thinking what to do and get a little overwhelmed with it. Now I'm thinking I should wait until we find out if baby is a girl or boy, since we will be finding out in 3 weeks.
I waited a really long time into the pregnancy to change my siggy. I just wasn't comfortable with it until something after like 20 or 25 weeks, I believe. I think it just depends. If you want to do it, then go ahead!
Maybe I shouldn't say this, and I don't mean to offend, but just hypothetically if you were to lose the baby, the siggy could sort of be something to remember him or her by, you know? So even if you did do it but then lost the baby it could still be something you would want.
I recall getting really attached to my "It's been ___ days/months since we said goodbye" ticker.
Rachel, I always wanted to know about your name. Geogeek - sounds like you are computer nerd. But are you saying you want to change your name to "Geforce" As in GeForce, the video card? Are you REALLY a computer nerd?

Darn you auto correct...I wrote that on my iPad. That should have been before. LOL. I am a geology geek. I have no intention to change my username. My degree is in geology. It just seems fitting for me.
Gosh, I can't remember when I made my first siggy with my first rainbow baby. But I think it was pretty early.....like around 4-5wks. With each rainbow after, I always made a ticker right away when I found out I was pg (8-10dpo), but I have not made special siggy's since my first rainbow.
Making a ticker was my way of coping with the milestones. I needed to see it move a day, each day, bringing me closer to my rainbow in my arms.
Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy..]
