I'm pregnant with my first child and my husband will be deployed when the baby is due and won't get to meet his child until they are 4 months old. I am going back and forth about the decision to stay here or to move home with my parents when the baby comes. We just moved here and haven't gotten a chance to know people yet and we don't live on base. My biggest concern is to have enough support around me while he is gone.
I would love to hear from anyone else who has been through a similar situation and if you decided or were able to go home to your family, or if you stayed put and had family come out to help for a bit.
