He's leaving in September and coming home (you never really know). He's going to miss the birth of our first child. I know he's excited to deploy and sad he'll miss the birth and the first few months of life but I'm just scared. I have no idea what I'm doing. I can do anything with him near me but without him I feel totally lost. I'm moving home with family but nothing can replace him. I'm a proud marine wife but doing this whole birthing thing without him has knocked me on my face. I need some advice.
