Okay well today was me EDD for my first pregnancy

The baby could of been a year old today.

I had a termination on 20/11/2010 when I was 17 weeks pregnant.

My partner and I were devastated.

We soon got pregnant again and our baby boy is 3 months old.

But today I was going thru stuff and I found ultrasound pictures of our first baby.

I had a bit of a cry and asked myself whyd I do it etc etc..
anyway I dont know whether to do something special with them to remember but at the same time get rid of them whilst doing something special...

Any ideas??

im confused, and this is in no way to bash. but if you were devastated afterwards why did you terminate to begin with? and then why did you get pregnant so soon after?




i have my ultrasounds - from when i lost my babies, but they were miscarriages. ill always keep them.

i read through your topics and I'm sorry you went through that.
i would keep them, esp since you didnt want to have the abortion to begin with.

I would keep them and do a scrapbook page or something. It was your child and did exist and I think it would be special to remember them. So sorry for your loss.
