So sad.  Does she get pedicures?  Maybe a gift certificate to a nearby nail salon.  Sometimes you can order them online, print it out and send it.

Hmm… You can always send her edible arrangements. If I were in her shoes though I would want nothing more than to be left alone. Everyone is different.

I think the movie idea is great, or even a book or some magazines.

@Stranger516:  +1 I’d wanna be left alone too 🙁 poor girl.

 

 

@Puppy Love:  Maybe some DVD’s, pop-corn and other assorted movie snacks? Some pyjamas maybe? <3 If it were me, you wouldn’t be able to drag me off the couch for a few weeks.

This is so sad. I just had this happen with my soon-to-be SIL at 20 weeks.

I sent a box with pajamas, hot cocoa, a DVD of a TV series both her and her DH would like, a magazine for each of them based on their interests, and a gift card to a pizza place so she could order in. And of course a card with a personal note.

it was well received. I recommend acknowledging the dad’s loss too in the gift. And possibly send a card to your aunt/her mother depending on the relationship. I did that and my soon-to-be MIL appreciated it. She lost a grandchild too.

i experienced this a little less than a year ago at 21weeks.  I too had to be induced and give birth to my son knowing he was gone. It has been the most difficult thing I have ever faced in my life and when it happened I just wanted to be left alone in my room to cry. i did not care for any phone calls with persons telling me that every thing happens for a reason, trust me that is of no comfort at that time. 

Just give her some time. You can call her or send a message to let her know that she is in your prayers. But at this time all she wants is her baby back and no book, DVD, pedicure can fill that void which she must feel at this time.

in time, she will recover, but the road will bee long and hard. To today sunday mornings are hard for me bc if I see 8:10 am I’m immediatelabsent back to that Sunday morning son I saw my son for the first time knowing it would also be the last. January 29 will be one year sin cue my boy went to meet The Lord he, he was too preckons for this world so God took him early but there is not a day which passes that I don’t think of him, could he could have been and what he would be doing now.

so I said all of that to say, just give your cousin some space to grieve. Be there for her in her recovery.

The same thing happened to my cThin this summer. She was 22 weeks, it was awful. I felt even more terrible because I was on vacation when it happened and couldn’t be there for her. Your ideas for a gift basket sound good. But the biggest thing I can think of is just being there for her during this really difficult time!
