Got pregnant after losing a parent

Hi mummies! I lost my dad a couple of months ago and till now, I still find myself grieving over the loss. Sometimes I’m ok, some days are just hard. And then, months after that, I got pregnant. I felt so happy when I found out. I’m almost 13 weeks now and at times, I find myself thinking about my late dad more and then it hits me. Hard. I know my mental health is important to my growing baby’s well-being. I hope there’s someone out there who’s had the same experience as me, and how you actually learn to cope with it. It may just be the pregnancy hormones after all. :)

Hey mama...I just wanna say that I’m sending you lots of love and prayers right now. I know it’s hard. Do reach out for help if you need it - talking to others or even a professional would be good and might help alleviate the grief in time. Do be patient with yourself and love yourself okay ❤️

Thank you so much for this! I really appreciate you saying that i need to be patient with myself. I thought one extreme emotion would be able to negate the other. I just need to get used to both emotions existing simultaneously. Have a great evening, mummy!
