I've never been pregnant before, until now, and unfortunately my Fiancee is in Afghanistan. I found out I was pregnant 3 weeks after he left. Its the first pregnancy for both of us and we're both so sad that he's not here for it. I feel alone in this pregnancy, even though I know I am not.. I just thought when I did become pregnant, my man would be around for it.
I was starting to wonder if I could ever have kids as it has been many years in the making. So when I found out I was pregnant it was a complete shock and I couldn't be happier!!! I had to call him on Skype and tell him the HPT was positive! He's excited but in shock as well.
The end of April Im scheduled for my 1st U/S. Im going to try to record the heartbeat on my phone and email it to him and now that I have an address for him, Im going to mail him pictures from the U/S as well.
I love that man more than anything and couldn't be prouder of him for what he does, but this pregnancy is such poor timing but a blessed occurance. He's not going to get to see my tummy grow, except for pictures, or get to feel the baby move, I'll be lucky if he makes it home before the baby is due!! Dr says im Due Nov 10th, and depending on how things go over there, he'll either be home in october or the latest December. Im just praying he's home with a few weeks left in my pregnancy so he doesnt miss EVERYTHING!!
So far the pregnancy has been fairly easy. Im tired more than anything, a little nausea, and Im sooo tired of having to eat every 3 hours!!!
Crossing my fingers for a healthy pregnancy as I am now 7 weeks and 2 days and praying my soldier comes home safe!

Oh, my! I can't imagine how that must feel. I hope you have a great 9 months and he comes home safely! He must be really upset to be missing all this, too. I think it's great you're doing that. Maybe in a care package you can send him a recordable storybook that he can record on and then send back for you to play for baby in utero so baby can hear his voice?
