Sadly we found out last night that my sister will have to have a D&C to remove the baby that stopped growing. We are all heartbroken especially since we didn’t think they would have a baby and we just found out she was PG last night too. 🙁 I am taking her to get the D&C this Friday. My sister and I want to put a care package together for her. What would be some things that would be good to include in there?

So sorry to hear that. My instinct would be to include warm/caring things. Soft blanket, comforting smelling things, a favourite sweet, soothing things, books, a handwritten note. Just things that indicate an appreciation for her and that are indicative of comfort. Stuff that she might find soothing in her grief.

I agree with Canadablue. Also maybe some DVDs, redbox gift card, or Netflix membership? Tea, hot chocolate, regular chocolate? Poor sis!:(

I’m very sorry to hear that, sad news for your sis/family.
Nice idea to put this together for her:
I’d say include things you can’t have when pregnant – wine; coffee; brie cheese
As well def. a hot water bottle or one of those rice bags that you heat up in the microwave – she’ll need it. And/or relaxation bubble bath (lavendar or aromatherapy)
Maybe a comfy/cute pair of track pants or pj bottoms. And boy short underwear (she’ll have to wear a pad for a while) plus a sexy thong for when she’s better. 🙂
Something inspirational, because she will feel like it’s the end of the world. So you want to remind her that it’s not. Quote book, chicken soup for the surviving soul, etc.
And chick flicks, funny ones.
