Growing up i was very attached to my grandma we were bestfriends...When I was 12 she went into the hospital to have stints put in her legs so that her blood could circulate better.She promised that when she got better we would be able to go walking together....2 weeks past and she died in the hospital...I feelreally guilty because the night she died I was the one who was supposed to stay with her but couldn't cause thats when I first got my period=( I still have thoughts about that as the years go by I'm 22 now!! Now that I'm pregnant I just really miss my grandma more than usual and just have a since to need to be close to her..The closer time gets to my due date(i'm 35 weeks)the more I long to be with her???? What does this mean,,, is this normal????Thanks for the helpAnswer Question
Sounds to me like you really miss her. Is she the one your turned to often for advice or a shoulder to lean on. my last pregnancy; I really wanted my MOM! She was there for the other two and my daughter was the first born girl in the family. i felt so scared and alone without one to turn to (even though my hubby was there). I use to go to my mom for ad vice and when I was hurting. SO It was simply natural for me to want her being pregnant and hormonal. I was suppose to see her on Monday; but things came up. hubby said it's ok we will see her Thursday. Needless to say she passed away on Tuesday. She had an incurable lung disease and was given 6-8 months to live without a transplant. needless to say; she passed away 9 days after they gave her this news. I still feel guilty to this day; why could I have not taken 10 minutes just to call her? What was more important then seeing my mom? (we sat at home all day).

What you are feeling is absolutely normal. Maybe it would help to use your pregnancy to do something specific for her memory: name the baby in a meaningful way after her, take the new baby to the cemetery, post a charitable donation in her name, provide the new baby with a meaningful gift associated with your grandmother (my grandmother crocheted all kinds of afghans, for instance), or something else. I think it would benefit you greatly to ritually acknowledge your feelings and honor her memory.
