Something to encourage her to stay off her feet, it's important to stay horizontal for as long as possible, does she have a vcr or dvd in her bedroom? Maybe a film or music video she can watch in bed?

What about a set of smellies so she can pamper herself? Bubblebath, body lotion etc

thanks suzy and lisa...
lisa - that is what my thinking was initially...pampering stuff....

unfortunately she doesnt have a tv in her room....

scented candle?
or is that too much like lighting a candle for someone? or would she like that
oh hell
i don't want to look insensitive with what i buy - if I buy something will it look trivial
not quite sure what to do for the best

Candle is a very good idea, it its important to give her the opportunity to remember the baby (not getting in to a debate but you know what I mean). We planted a grape vine inthe garden in remembrance after it happened for us. I was in her shoes four years ago before I had my boys and she's going to feel wobbley and mopey for a while yet.

But do keep her off her feet, traipsing around may make her bleed.

Thanks suzy - I wondered about the candle but worried that it may be too significant if you know what I mean.

I think that is what i will go with

thanks all xx

I took my best friend some flowers and she burst into tears, but I think that was just because it was the realisation that someone else appreciated how she was feeling.
