We have 7 years in right now. Over 5 years of sea time and we are finally at shore for 3 years. We hate it! Haha. It's so much longer hours than when the ship is in port. I like him home when he is actually home before 7. We were on a carrier in WA for our first ship (Stennis) where we did 2 deployments. The first one was 4 1/2 months after we got married and I was about 20 weeks pregnant when he left. The baby leave was not implemented yet and since he was in a war zone was not able to come home until it was over. That deployment was 8 1/2 months. David was 4 months old when he got back. They bonded so quickly, I was worried. When our second child was born he was just underway in San Diego and paternity leave had just been implemented so he was able to come home for 10 days. Which was nice. You can do this Hun, you are stronger than you realize!
