When updating the "My TTC Journey" tab to note that we've officially started TTC again, I couldn't help but notice that the last 3 Junes have all been pretty significant for me:

June 2012: Started TTC
June 2013: Started medicated cycles/IF treatments
June 2014: Started TTCAL
June 2015: ???

How about:  "June 2015: Rainbow Baby is born!" ?!

(Y'know, I was never really big on the term "Rainbow Baby" until I found this:

Please oh please let us be blessed someday with a happy, healthy Rainbow Baby.)


  1. I never really knew the meaning of it, thank you for sharing! This also makes me want to list the same thing on my TTC timeline :)

  2. I really hated the term Rainbow Baby for a long time. It made it sound like everything would be okay once another baby was born, and that was so far from the truth. I found that same explanation of a rainbow baby and I grew to understand it and appreciate it more. I never used to be much for guardian angels or signs from heaven or anything like that until Conner and Benjamin passed away and started showing me all kinds of things that I could not ignore. I really do believe you have a little one up in heaven that is helping you along this journey and who will help you bring your rainbow home. Fingers crossed and hands in prayer for you, Chickin. I really wish the best for you.

  3. Thank you for sharing. I was never big on the term either, but now I understand its depth.

  4. Thanks for sharing the Rainbow baby explanation, I was wondering!

    Here's to hoping your June 2015 brings a healthy take home baby!

  5. That's such a beautiful description of a Rainbow Baby, thank you for sharing it. Sending you so much love, Chickin <3

  6. <3 That is a beautiful description of the term <3 It makes me think of the second verse of Christina Perri's song I Believe:

    I believe in the lost possibilities you can't see,
    And I believe that the darkness reminds us where light can be.
    I know that your heart is still beating, beating, darling.
    I believe that you fell so you would land next to me.

    And I also want to say that it makes the rainbow I saw last evening even more significant. All of this... it has been a terrible storm. I can only hope that after the storm blows over that we all get the most magnificent of rainbows.

    And I hope that June 2015 is just stunning for you. You deserve nothing but the best <3 Love you, Chickin.

    1. It reminded me of the line in the 3rd verse:
      I wish you could see your scars turn into beauty


  7. I always wondered what that term meant. Thanks for sharing. Hoping June of 2015 brings much happiness for you and your H. Sending you lots of love. <3

  8. Wishing with all my heart that June 2015 brings you nothing but happiness. And hopefully that happiness is in the form of a sweet, healthy little baby that you get to take home with you. <3

  9. I just love that explanation of a rainbow baby. I hope so very hard that you get yours - June 2015 sounds like a pretty damn good time to me <3
