A to Z – R is for Rainbows

Rainbows –

They mean so many different things to many people, but to me they mean two things, one being ‘Over the rainbow’ from the film Wizard of Oz, 

I would watch that film whenever I had a chance  at my nanny’s house, she would always watch the beginning but never the end having needed to get up and go get dinner ready. When she died the family was stuck on a song to have at her funeral so I suggested Over The Rainbow and it stuck.

It took us all a very long time before we could listen to that song again but now we don’t feel sad hearing it.

A is my rainbow baby, I don’t often call her that but that’s what she is, before we conceived her we had a positive pregnancy test, not sure how far along I was but within the week of finding out about that pregnancy, I lost it and I later found out I had suffered a chemical pregnancy which is a lot more common than people think.. the next month A was conceived so really any sadness I felt from the loss was gone and I continued with my pregnancy with her.

I honestly don’t call her it, but she was a rainbow after a storm and if I’m honest it made me realise how fragile pregnancy can be.

Until next time

Mummy Cat.

    I’m ashamed to say that I’ve never seen the Wizard of Oz in it’s entirety. πŸ™ˆ

    I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose a baby, so sorry you went through that x

    Aw, The Wizard of Oz means so much to me too. I used to watch it at my grandparents house and me and my bampi used to sing along. He passed away when I was ten and every time I hear ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ it brings back such lovely memories.

    That’s beautiful!! I’m glad you got your rainbow baby πŸ’ž
