Grief and Pregnancy – Dealing With Death While Creating LifeMolly Thornberg
It’s been a hard week. I’m really making an effort to “finish well” and complete these last few weeks of pregnancy without a hitch.
Then life kicks in and that friendly reminder of “YOU ARE NOT IN CONTROL” happens.
Between wrapping up work, juggling the kids, dealing with pregnancy issues – I get a message on Thursday that my Grandpa isn’t doing well and isn’t expected to make it.
Friday morning I awoke to learn that he had passed on Thursday night. Eerily the same time I had woken up from a nap.
WHAM. That’s life for you.
So, what to do? Good question. Here is my attempt.

While this is hard and another slice of life – I’m thankful for the time we had together. If life was only as easy as following these 5 items – all would be hunky dory. I know it’s not. But it’s a start. I’m giving it to God and asking for his help in making it as easy as possible.
I feel for those who have to deal with a dear loved one’s passing, especially while pregnant and an emotional mess as is.
