Shortly here, I'm meeting up to talk to my dad. To keep it as brief as possible, I haven't spoken to him in a month and a half when he was super cruel to me about an hour after my grandmother died (my mom's mom, not his). We have never has a good relationship and he has pretty much always treated me that way, but never my siblings. After the big event after my grandma's passing I completely cut ties with him bc my sanity can't handle the way he treats me anymore. He has asked to meet up and talk, but I suspect it has nothing to do with actually wanting a relationship with me, but more with wanting to keep my mom happy and wanting to see DD. He has since found out about he baby on the way and he fancies himself grandpa of the year. I think he likes to put on that persona to others. It's a messy situation that is very likely to cause further emotional scarring. In agreeing to meet up with him, I warned him that if he started with me, I would immediately leave and he wouldn't be seeing me again, but I really don't trust him. Being pregnant makes this so much harder bc my biggest fear as a mom is that I would ever end up making my kids feel the way he makes me feel. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a very strained relationship with my father also, I will pray that things go as smoothly as possible.

Thanks, Valerie. It was quite a painful conversation. It started exactly as I expected, but toward the end, it sounded like he was finally starting to get it. I very hesitantly agreed to try again after he acknowledged that he has to change, with a promise that one more incident and things oils be over permanently. I am approaching this very cautiously and not very optimistically, but I guess I will see what happens. It's been a lot to deal with on top of pregnancy hormones. Lots and lots of crying. Thanks for your prayers!

I am glad he at least got to *some* level of understanding, hopefully. Sometimes it is just a one-step-at-a-time thing. Wishing you guys luck.

It is sad when family members "break up" but sometimes it needs to happen for your overall mental health. Hopefully, he has changed and will stick to his promise,
