Goodbye little bean

Had confirmation from the EPU today of what I already knew that I mc our little bean this week. I am happy that the worst is over and I didn't need a d & c, which is great as I was 8wks. I know it wasn't meant to be, I know we'll be pg again and I am ok, mc is just part of the cycle of life and I have been so lucky that I don't seem to have any problems getting pg. But I just wanted to take the time to say goodbye to the bean that we both hoped would be our DC2. So farewell, though you never got the chance to be part of our lives you will be missed.

its beautiful, when i lost jellybean at 7 weeks i wrote a letter to him, i got a feeling it was a boy, and i keep it with his 6 week scan photo.

everyone should say goodbye at any point, as soon as they are conceived they have a life, and they are loved.

thanks for reminding us playingatmotherhood

Commiserations Playing..

I think a lot of us have been there..and it really is so important to say goodbye ..we plant a rose for every lost baby and in the summertime it helps to see all those beautiful flowers still living and growing ..

I m thinking of having a ring made actually with a stone for each baby - something I can wear everyday - so I can cary them with me somehow..
Hope you get a beautiful healthy baby int he future to help heal you x

I lost a bean too at 8 weeks on valentine's day. I thought I was coping well but still get days where I just want to curl up and cry. I am so sorry for your loss. Mumsnet has helped me so much - don't know how I would have coped without it. People in RL seem to think I should be over it by now - they just don't understand.

TiggieWiggle- that's me too, 8 weeks, started to mc Valentines Day Totally agree with everything you've said... have you done anything to say goodbye, I go through phases of wanting to and then not?

Thanks for a lovely post OP and sorry for all our losses
