I decided to go check out a message board with ddcs I was a member of when I was pg in the past, since I'm bored and trying to avoid cleaning up the kitchen. I have to say, as much as I miss being able to click on blog links in people's sigs here, I'm glad they're so low-key. The sigs on this other board are super fancy, with collaged pics of kids with their full names and birth dates sometimes. I like the fancy pg tickers, but there is one which uses a real picture of a fetus (deceased) to show what the baby looks like now... that's hard for me. I find the pictures beautiful on their own and I wouldn't mind coming across them if I were looking for them, but to scroll past them again and again while reading on a message board... a little much for me.
(Just to clarify -- I think this is totally different from having photos of your own stillborn baby, for instance, in your sig or as your avatar.)
It doesn't help that someone there just posted that they're having twins, and there are already a couple of others twin pregnancies in that ddc. I lost twins in an early miscarriage a few years ago, and I've been thinking about them a lot this time. That really has little to do with the board itself, it just didn't help my impression of it.
I don't think I'd want to see that, either. I appreciate how meaningful those pictures can be, though. I used to volunteer for a local hospital's L&D bereavement team, and they take pictures to store for when the parents are ready. In ticker form, though...I don't know.
