I just found out I am pregnant on Monday. And last week we also found out my husband's father is not doing so well. They do not give him very long to live. I have been finding it difficult to tell my husband being that his father is dying. Does anyone have any suggestions. Should I tell him before his father dies or wait? It is a very hard situation.

Thank you for your thoughts and concerns. I finally told my husband tonight after things had settled down a little bit with his dad. He was very happy. I guess in about 8 months I will be having a little one :D

I am so very sorry for you loss....
I can relate 100%.. When I found out I was expecting our 2nd baby, my husbands mom had just been diagnosed with liver cancer stage 3..
It took everything I had to tell him and his family.. It was welcomed news/ distraction..

I told him by, making a meal with baby related food items.. He thought it was cute and was very happy and then we talked about names if it was a boy we would use his moms middle name and if it was a girl we would use part of her name.. He reacted with a heavy yet happy heart... I could see the pain and happiness all at once...
Hope this is helpful... Best Wishes and Take Care...

Cori, I'm so sorry for your loss. We went through that with both of my grandparents last year.

I certainly hope things start looking up, and that he can see the pregnancy as a positive thing...the continuation of the circle of life. And, who knows...if it's a boy, maybe you could name him after your FIL?

Well my father in law passed away earlier today and I don't know if not saying anything was the best choice but he defintley wouldn't have noticed. He was pretty out of it all day. He is pain free now. Now I just have to find the right time to tell my husband about my pregnancy. I don't want to be like well hey guess what I'm pregnant as he is mourning. But than again it could cheer him up. I don't know. :/

Would this be welcome news?

Happy news is always good to share in these times, and your FIL may just enjoy the news as well.

If it wouldn't be 'good' news...its still not going to change by putting it off.

Honestly, though, I'm not sure what I'd do...this is a tough one. I hope it works out for you, and that your FIL isn't in too much distress. Stay strong. You're in my thoughts & prayers.
