Has any other woman had a baby while their husband is deployed? I'm having my first and I'm terrified!?
I would love to hear from some of you and get advice and tips.
My husband is leaving 3 months before the baby is due and coming back when the baby is about 8 months old. It's our first child. I'll be moving back home (to another state) to be closer to family and have their help but I will be living by myself still. I am so terrified and there is so much that I don't know. I'm so upset about him not being there for me for 8 months. I know family will help but it's just not the same!! A lab, a dachshund, and a newborn will be a handful.
I would love to have people I can talk to who can relate. I think it would help me through this. Can you relate??
