Although I cannot completely relate, I have been through some of this. I was in the Navy for 2 years and dh was in for 6 years. He was deployed many times. We did two 6 month deployments and one 3 month deployment, plus many 3-6 week deployments. He missed the birth of one of our children, he was deployed when I had my miscarriage, he missed a lot. It was very very hard, but it made us very strong. I have the utmost respect for all the military members. (((((((Hugs))))))))))
So sorry to hear, my husband was reserves and he got called over at the beginning of the war. He was gone for a quite awhile but is home now. I was taking care of our son (three now) and working so I can understand how stressful it is. Definetly get married before he leaves so you will get your family seperation and dependant pay it will help you lots if you don't work and you will need it for baby to come. Take care all will go well. I'm glad to say my husband is now out of the Reserves because of going over there it has definetly changed our lives. I use to be in the service as well but its total different when your spouse leaves for those circumstances. My email is email@example.com if you want to chat or anything.
Oh (((HUGS))) hun! I'm right there with you! I"ve been thru deployments before, but this time I'm going to have a baby while hes gone! My husband is in the Navy and is out to sea right now. He'll be gone for 6 months and wont see his second daughter until she is 3.5 months old!! I totally know how you feel and you can pm\email or chat on yahoo or aim with me anytime!! Its NEVER easy no matter how many times you have to go thru it! I'm so sorry it happened at such an inoppertune time for you!

I am sorry you are having to go thru this but here is my 2 cents. I would get married before he leaves also. You will get more $$ to share with him when he comes home. You can always have your big wedding when he does come home too. I am sorry your having to deal with this on top of being preggo and try to get married but please remember to stay strong. You will get thru it. It will be hard but you have to do it for the "girls". This is what always kept me going. My husband was deployed for a year when the war started and I thought I would not get thru it but I did and it has made me stronger. Best of luck and stay strong
