My First Tattoo – Honoring my Pregnancy Losses

Today is a day that I never thought would be applicable to me. Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. In the past year I have lost two pregnancies.

While on family vacation last month I got the idea of getting a tattoo to remember my two miscarriages. Something about the physical pain coupled with the emotional pain, it felt like a way of being able to move on but remembering.

I had always contemplated getting a tattoo, but I could never decide on anything permanent. A friend of mine mentioned she had her daughterโ€™s name tattooed on her wrist, and that got me thinking about doing something for my angel babies.

Since this was my first tattoo I decided on something small โ€“ the pink and blue ribbon for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness. I got it on my wrist where I can always see it.

Tonight I light a candle in remembrance of my babies and all the families that lost their little ones too soon. I see you, and I feel you. ๐Ÿ’—
