I am 39 weeks pregnant with my first child and my husband left for Afghanistan. Not only is he going to miss the birth but I have no family able to be here with me, which of course eliminates the video tapes etc. The marine corps could care less, they told him one day before leaving that his flight had changed and that he was to leave more then a week early for his tour. The chance of me being induced before then was shattered and this is what we're left with. I am scared to death, have no way of notifying him or even documenting it other then photograph, which will have to be good enough. I just wish someone somewhere would acknowledge the service and sacrifices being done by my husband especially when he truely never recieves anything back from it, at least this is how I feel on the matter. Has anyone ever gone through anything similar?
