ty...I'm sorry too :( I regret it everyday but it's getting better too...looking back I can see why my mother so strongly wanted me to go thru with it...I've learned to find at least a little peace with the decision now that I'm older, I truly believe my baby would have been a girl (just one of those "feelings") and if nothing else I can take a little solace in the fact that because I didn't bring her into the world I was able to keep her safe from her p.o.s. father...it's not much, but it helps me sleep at night knowing that I at least saved her from having to deal with everything I have already gone thru...she is and always will be my first baby, and she'll always be an angel baby to me...and no one can ever tell me otherwise...

I know this was posted two days ago but I wouldn't do it because when people see it (didn't read where you are gonna get it) they would ask how your baby died, why your baby died, etc, just because that is always the first thing people assume when they see that kind of memorial to a deceased one.

I don't think strangers would come up to someone and say "Why do you have those angel wings? Who died? How did they die?" LOL. Kwim?

No. People ask me about my tats all the time. My SILs friend got a memorial one except hers is on her lower arm and they ask why she got it and, according to SIL, some people do have the balls to ask how her LO died.

I may have never gotten and abortion, ( of course i am pregnant with my first LO.) But I would feel guilty too if i lost my LO and would want them back but will never be able to have them back. I agree with the tattoos. I mean You just destroyed a piece of you ( not trying to sound rude) and you can't get it back. After a while it gets devestating. I know of a girl who got an abortion just because she didn't want her baby to turn out looking like his dad. So she got an abortion, all because she said her baby was going to look more like his father and she didn't want it anymore. How pathetic of an excuse. But those are her reasons and in school she was always a P.O.S. But other mothers get abortions because they feel they are not 'ready' or they just don't want to have kids. Later they regret their desicions. I know I would. (Again, sorry I am not trying to bash anyone.)

A friend of mine got a similar tattoo.. for a quote she used "Once in my body, always in my heart" but she chose to have it in a different language so she wasn't constantly having to explain her sad situation.

I wanna say this respectfully, but as a mother of two angel babies I disagree greatly with getting a tattoo for an abortion.. it is kind of hurtful to me that someone who decided to end a pregnancy would want to use it as a memory.



I don't know, that's just my opinion. I didn't ask for my babies to die, and I feel really hurt that someone would ask for that hardship (abortion OR miscarriage) then ask for attention based on it.

I think this is beautiful. I say get it. It's your loss, don't let other people tell you how you can or cannot mourn it.
