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. :)

For me. I cried too thinking of my father who passed on. But after crying, telling my hubby about feeling down. I just went back to normal. It’s ok to be down but don’t let it last too long as I was advised babies can feel mummy’s emotion too
