Dad Dying

So right before we got pregnant with little lady, my father was diagnosed with end stage cancer. I knew there was a huge chance he would never meet her, but here I am 30 weeks, & suddenly I was getting my hopes up. He’s going to meet her!

This week we got the news that he’s got 8 weeks tops left. The chemo isn’t doing anything to prolong life & fluid build up is causing the cancer to spread. So he’s being placed on hospice care. He’s not going to meet her.

The reality hurts and I’m worried at this point that the stress of losing my father is going to send me into pre-term labor. Or have bad effects on baby.

Just... any pointers/ideas on how to cope/grieve while pregnant?
