I found a site which sells memorial bracelets for miscarriage and infant loss. I have no financial interest in the site, so I'm not necessarily promoting it. I just thought this could be a source of comfort to remember your child who could have been. Whether you buy from this company or make your own bracelet, you may find the whole process helpful.

From the site:
Rose Quartz is the stone of love and emotional healing. It’s soothing energies gently help the wearer to heal from their loss, to ease their anger, hurt, pain and fears. It promotes forgiveness, and loving, bringing back an emotional balance. It is a kind and gentle stone, nurturing us through our times of need.
Blue lace agate is a protective stone, guarding us during our grief from negativity. It’s gift is the endowment of a “bold heart”. It helps us to develop and realise our inner peace. It is a stone of hope, cleansing, and harmony. Blue lace agate helps us to reach high spiritual places, connecting us to the more subtle energies found in the spiritual realm. It is also a kind and gentle stone, protecting us during our time of vulnerability and grief.
These stone were also chosen for their colours, baby blue and baby pink. Many of us do not know the sex of the babies we have lost, and I wanted something that would symbolise all of our losses. Baby pink and blue are also the colours of the pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness ribbon.

Is it easier to conceive after a miscarriage? (www.dailymail.co.uk)
From the article:
Many doctors suggest waiting at least three months and generally this is to give you time to deal with the miscarriage, from an emotional point of view.
Of course the amount of time that you need may not be as long as this or it could be longer. There is no 'right' time to start trying again.
Research into miscarriage risk in the next pregnancy does not support any benefit to waiting a specific period of time. The outcome seems to be just as likely successful whether you get pregnant right away or leave it some time for your body to 'get back to normal', as is sometimes suggested.
I don't think that there is any reason to believe that it will necessarily be easier for you to conceive quickly.
Certainly people who have fallen pregnant once are more likely to do so again, because you have proven your fertility - even though the outcome was unfortunate this time around.
