Hey all! My name is Stephanie. I am a newbie on here! I am 33weeks w/ a due date of March 6. I'm looking forward to meeting new moms and moms to be. It's been a roller coaster pregnancy, but I'm excited to meet my new bundle of joy soon.

I joined this discussion board to get advise and support from fellow moms! My husband enlisted in the airforce reserves almost 2 yrs ago and back in September he finally got his date for basic and tech school. He leaves Feb 22! That's right, 2 weeks before my due date. The fact that he is not going to be here for the birth of our first baby boy has devastated both of us. I have been okay through the whole pregnancy dealing with this, but now that my due date is around the corner, I'm getting more anxious and stressed on the fact that my biggest support system is not going to be here! I've been doing my best to keep it together, because I know he already feels terrible and heartbroken that he won't be here but It's getting really difficult to hide my emotions now! It seems like everything acts as a trigger to crying or getting upset. Our first pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage so this is our first to term.

I look forward to hearing from you all and getting to know other moms!

Hi and welcome aboard! Feel free to jump right in.

My name is Stephanie too, this is my second baby. I'm really, really sorry your husband isn't going to be there, I'd be crying and really upset too, and he sounds just as devastated as you are. I think we have some military wives in our DDC that should be able to offer some advice, I've never been through it myself.

What horrible timing for you dh to go for basic training. Maybe baby will come 2.5 weeks early or something, late enough baby is perfectly healthy but early enough your dh is still there. That would be great.

I'm sorry your husband is leaving so soon. My SIL's husband just left for his second half of basic after Christmas break a week ago and she's being induced on Monday. She's devastated. This is their second child, but it's their first girl.

Welcome to the boards. We have a great group, don't be shy.

Glad you joined us!
I'm so sorry your dh will not be there. We are ex-military and I know how hard it can be when the military can't/doesn't consider these life altering moments in your life. It makes it unbearable at times.

I know it's not the same....BUT.... we are here to talk to and help in anyway we can now and when he is gone....so by all means, join in and WELCOME!!

I'm Tina.... one of the older moms here... pg with our 6th living child (lost several over the years) and I'm having another beautiful baby BOY!! I have one 13month old daughter and the rest are BOYS!

Thank you all for the wonderful welcomes! I'm looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you. I am hoping my sister will get to be with me while I'm delivering. Most of my family is in California and his family is from greensboro, nc which is where we live.

Just praying everything will work out for the best!
