This is very personal to me so please be kind... you think its odd that I've written letters to my unborn child? I started to write then after we got past our seventeen week mark. Which is when I gave birth to our other little girl (RIP OCT 17) due to preterm labor.

  • You have suffered the greatest loss of all. Nothing you do is weird. You have to do what is right for you. I hope my son and daughter know your daughter. I wrote to my son when he first died. I haven't written to my Sarah, but I talk to her and tell her how we are taking care of her baby. (((Hugs)))

  • I do not think that is odd at all. I think it is very sweet and I think it's a great way to help you heal from your loss.

  • I lost a pregnancy at 20 weeks. I don't think what you're doing is odd at all.

  • No not at all I actually tried doing that but they seemed silly so I quit, lol. I'm not much of a writer. But sometimes I'll write the traits I hope he has like "Evan I hope you're a brave boy and you stand for what's right" that kind of thing

  • I don't think so at all. It is very personal so I tend to reserve judgement in situations like these but I would say not at all! :)

  • I think its beautiful and I wish I could share thoughts from being pregnant with my dd who is now 18. What a wonderful gift to give your child

  • I wrote a letter to each of my sons before they werer born telling them how much I love them, how much they were wanted, and what I hope life holds for them. I figure I will give it to each of them on their 18th birthday or if I need it during some tough time in their teen years. So, no I see nothing wrong with writing to your unborn baby.
