Loss of a loved one and baby on the way

I don't know how to deal with the news I have received tonight. My aunt is dying and they give her less than a couple of hours to live yet I"m getting ready to have a baby. How do I deal with my sadness so it wont put my baby in any harm? I don't know wether to be sad and let my emotions come running out or try to keep my composure and hold tight. I'm getting induced on Friday the 29th and my doctors appointment is tomorrow. Would it be wrong of me to see if he would do it maybe a day sooner so it would be possible for me to be at a funeral? Am I out of my mind for even asking if he will move up my date? Someone please tell me it is okay to feel the way I feel or if I'm being selfish.

Thanks in advance

You are not selfish at all but how would you ever attend the funeral right AFTER giving birth? Any chance you can come to a one-on-one fare-well with your beloved Aunt before Friday? Just in case?
