He'd say "go big or go home baby!" lol. He would have been thrilled about this pregnancy.

I haven't written the email yet....just not sure of what all I want to say. Thanks for responding to my post.

My dad used to tease my sister and me about trying to populate the world lol.
I miss him so much, just to hear his voice and his laugh, to see him smile. Knowing he knew about this baby is a comfort but they will never meet and that makes me so sad. When I told him I just cried and he said it would be ok and hugged me. I just said it wasn't supposed to be like this. He fought cancer for quite a few years and was tired so I know he is no longer in pain. The loss is just so hard and feels like it will never go away. I look forward to the day I can think of him and look at his pictures and not cry.
So sorry to hear about your Dad too. Unless someone has gone through it they just can't understand, no matter how hard they try. Lots of hugs!
