my forever child

I got a beautiful piece of jewelry in the mail yesterday.  Forgive my crappy photography.  I really couldn't get a good image.  
The photo on the left shows one side of the charm that says "Always in my heart" around the circle and then the inner disc says 4/26/09.  
The other side (photo on right) has baby footprints on the heart disc and says Lydia Rose around the circle.  I love it.   This is one of the rare times that I've really loved something I did not see in person before buying since I ordered it online.  I found this online jewelry shop called My Forever Child through someone on the babycenter 2nd/3rd trimester lost message board.  I would highly recommend this shop to anyone who has someone they want to remember this way.  They also have fertility jewelry apparently.  So if you are interested check out the link.  

I bought supplies two weeks ago to work on a memory box (shadow box) to hold the blanket that I was knitting, the tape measure that they used to measure Lydia, and some other items.  We will probably display the finished product in our bedroom if I ever finish it.  Crafting usually comes easy to me.  But I really want to create something perfect for this.  So I've been giving a lot of thought to the design of this box.  Whenever I get it done I'll post a photo.


********************************************
Today I have an appointment with my RE.  I'm nervous to go back to that office.  When I left there I was so happy.  And when I first went there I was excited.  This time I have neither of those feelings.  Just nervous anxiety about what she is going to tell me about my stupid uterus.  Good thing I have an acupuncture session later in the afternoon to calm me down if it is bad.

What a beautiful memorial piece. Really nice idea. It's great that you've found some beautiful ways to remember her. I might try it. Probably distracts from all the not so beautiful reminders that crop up in my daily life like missed due dates, scars from blood draws, old pictures of BFP-sticks and belly shots, etc.
