Today’s Capture Your Grief topic is Regrets + Triggers. I don’t know of any regrets that I have as far as my grief journey.
The one major regret that I do have, however, is that I did not insist on having some of Faith’s hair cut off for us to keep. When I asked the nurse, she responded that babies at that gestation don’t really have very much hair. Of course, I didn’t go beyond that at the time. Although, I truly wish I would have insisted and asked for scissors to do it myself.
As far as triggers go, what isn’t a trigger? Looking at my husband and living daughter are triggers. Seeing other baby girls or young girls is a trigger.
The Thanksgiving season/holiday will always remind me of Faith. We found out I was pregnant the day before Thanksgiving and it was so very special. I don’t think I will ever forget how happy I was when I took the test and saw that it was positive. This picture of me was taken over Thanksgiving after we found out. I love how happy I am in this picture!
