I had my first miscarriage June 21, 2011 at 16 weeks. I didn't get the chance to find out the sex of the baby, even though I always felt it was a girl. She was my butterfly, for she was always kicking. She would have been born around December 5. My second miscarriage was April 15, 2012 at 11 weeks. My football, that wonderful weight cradled in my pelvis, would have been born around October 20. Again, I didn't get a chance to find out the sex, but I felt like it was another girl, so I named her Thing 2, and her sister Thing 1.
I've already got a couple of tattoos, and now, I want memorial tattoos for my babies. I'd love to know what ideas you guys have for memorial tattoos, and what some of you have used in the past. — SnowQueen
