About Us

Welcome to Catching our Rainbow!

In August of 2011, hubby and I entered the world of “Trying to Conceive.” We both thought this would be a fairly easy process—all you have to do is have sex, right? That’s how it happened for our best friends: they decided to have a baby, they started trying, in less than a month they had a positive pregnancy test, she was pregnant for nine months with no complications, she gave birth, and now they have a beautiful son. I think this gave us some unrealistic expectations about fertility and conception. I thought we would get pregnant immediately, and my best friend and I would be pregnant together. Unfortunately, that is not how our story goes. We tried to get pregnant for nine months, and when I finally saw that positive test, I had an early miscarriage. Then I had another early miscarriage. And another one. And another one. And another one. It has now been well over two and a half years, and we still do not have a living child.

I decided to start this blog to have a place to share my story, possibly connect with some women who have been in my shoes, and also to have a safe place to vent. Topics like infertility and miscarriages make people uncomfortable, so it isn’t always easy to find someone to talk to. Even when you have supportive friends who will listen, you reach a point where you feel like you have bothered them enough—I don’t want to be the woman who is always upset or complaining. I also wanted to start this blog to bring some more awareness to infertility and miscarriages because they are both so much more common than people seem to realize. I can’t tell you have many people I’ve talked to who had trouble getting pregnant or had a miscarriage. So I created this blog: Catching Our Rainbow.  For those who don’t know, a baby that is born after a miscarriage is called a rainbow baby, so we are currently trying to catch our rainbow after the storm.

Hope in the mist of darkness
