    When I was 10 years old my mum died (aged 32) and it has had a profound effect on my life. She left me all of her jewellery and on my 16th birthday my dad gave me one of her rings. It was the most beautiful ring i'd ever seen. He took her to London for there 10th wedding anniversary and bought it from a posh jewellers. It was gold with a 5 petal diamond flower on it and an opal stone in the middle. I wore it from that day forever bcoz it always reminded me of her and I always felt like part of her was always with me. I even went to a few psychics and they said the couldnt believe the amount they were drawn to the ring.
    Anyway, when I fell pregnant back in 2006 I obviously got heavier and the ring no longer fitted me. It was a really tough thing to put it away in a jewellery box bcoz during my pregnancy almost my full family disowned me and i needed her with me more than i ever had b4--crying now--Anyway. today i took that ring from my jewellery box and im sitting here typing with it on and it fits me perfectly. I feel complete. I know its soppy and silly and its only a ring, but it brings me soooo much comfort and i know i wouldnt be sitting here wearing it without cd :D:D:D

    Your story is not silly and soppy but tells exactly how you feel. I am so pleased that you have this ring of your mams and that it fits. Notice you live in Glasgow do you know there is a Glasgow meet on 23/24 May. Please see thread in Meetings and Events

    That is so beautiful. You should be so proud of yourself and I'm sure your mum would be too. You have achieved so much. Even I'm proud of you and I don't really know you.

    Well done! You will be a total inspiration to your baby when you tell them about it in years to come.xx
