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.

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

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 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

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

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?
