Hey girls!! Haven't been around the past week or so bc there's been big decisions being made in our house. If you're the prayin type, please say some prayers for my little family. My husband made the choice (with my support) to deploy again so instead of getting out of the army, looks like we'll be going through another one. Except, he'll be leaving about a month after the baby gets here. :/ not at all what I want but I support him and financially its better for our family. Just hard to swallow thinking you're going to be a normal family then it all changing to basically single mom status for another year.
Oh, yikes about the deployment after the baby is born. I have such admiration for you and all the other military wives who have to go through it. Are you guys going to stay in the same town or are you still planning on moving? Will you have family around?
I know that feeling all to well. My DH finally got hos discharge in March. I pray it all works out like you both want. Being alone is horrible but when you are having to worry about your spouse its even worse.

Oh that has to be so tough on you. I can't even imagine. Especially with a newborn. But I guess it's at least nice he'll be able to meet the baby before he deploys, but that would be so hard to miss out on so much. I'm sorry you'll both have to go through that.
I'll probably be moving back home but that puts us with a cross country move just before he deploys with a brand spanking new baby. Haha. I'm trying to think positive since the move will put me and my 3 yr old and the new baby closer to our family for the deployment. It'll be interesting packing up the house, prepping him for deployment, then moving cross country just a couple weeks after our snowflake gets here and a couple weeks before he leaves.
My husband will also be deploying a few months after the baby is born so i know exactly how you are feeling. This is my first preganancy so I have no idea how I'm going to handle doing it alone as we do not have family around us. Yes, financially its great and I do understand and support what he has to do since I am a service member as well and have deployed myself, but I'm not quite prepared yet to deal with it alone with a newborn. I'll figure that out after I make it through childbirth!
At this point, I am really trying not to think about it too much because it is upsetting and I don't want to stress myself out. I want to enjoy this pregnancy experience and I do feel comforted by the fact that I will have our new baby with me as opposed to waiting out the deployment alone.
