30 Day Blog Challenge- Day 19

Something I regret.

Boy, this list could go on forever...

I regret...

...not making a point to have the nurses give me back the onesie Shyla was wearing when we held her.
...not getting a photo of her perfect little feet.
...not having a photographs of the funeral.
...not being tested for this clotting disorders sooner.
...working so hard.
...not insisting my extreme swelling be seen by a doc.
...not going to L&D sooner.
...not taking longer off work.

I could go on and on.

I also thought should list things I don't regret.

I will never regret...

...holding and seeing my baby.
...having a funeral that family and friends could attend.
...taking photos of her.
...her life.
...donating her things to the Pregnancy Center.
...speaking out at public events.
...talking about her.
...being her mommy.

Much love to you all and I hope you all had a peaceful Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.

I like that you included the things you don't regret. I believe there are many things most of us would change if we only knew...But we didn't. I believe we all did the best we could with the tragic situation we were in. Thank you for reminding me of this.

It's awesome that you can find things you don't regret because it is so easy to focus on the regret rather the positive.
