Where to begin...My husband and I don't have children yet but we are beginning the thinking and planning stage of starting our family. My husband is set to deploy in about 4 months for a 6 month deployment. We are both trying to decide/way the pros and cons of me being pregnant while he is gone for 6 months vs. getting pregnant when he comes back and then him leaving soon after the baby is born on another deployment. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences of being pregnant while your husband was gone or having a newborn when he left. Me moving home while he is deployed is not an option since I have a full time job.
Please tell me how you handled both situations and any tips you would offer. :-)
