Do our emotions affect our unborn babies? My grandfather passed away today, and I'm just beside myself. Very sad. I'm trying not to be, because I know he's in a better place and he was ready to go. I was just there a month ago (grandpa lived 14 hours away). He and grandma were the 3rd & 4th people to know I was pregnant because I found out while visiting them. I just can't believe he's gone. My other grandfather passed away in August. I lost both my grandpas in less than a year.
