My grandma suddenly passed away Monday
And my mum died suddenly on Tuesday after she commited suicide

I'm abit of a wreck at the minute but I still feel like it's not hit me
I'm arranging two funerals with my dad and grieving for two completly different people both who I needed more than anyone
I'm only 21 and I'm 20 weeks pregnant
I feel like im still waiting for her to walk insad

Sincere condolences to you and your family. It's a lot to go through particularly as you are pregnant.

Do you have a good friend who can support you through this? I really feel for you xxx

advice everyone is so different when it comes to grieving that it is difficult for you to predict when it will sink in. Perhaps your midwife can provide support too. Thinking of you.

It is a lot to take in at once. It sounds as though you're too busy to adjust at the moment. Are you off work? Do give yourself longer off after the funerals. Take some time.
So sorry for yours (and families) losses.

I have great friends and family and I'm really close with my dad
I just can't explain how I feel when anyone asks
I've never lost anyone and I've lost my grandma and my mum within 24 hours
I've taken next week and the week after off work. I feel like I'll be ready to go back after the funerals because if I'm at home I'll be thinking about itsad
