My husband is getting ready to deploy in mid july to iraq. I am due on july 2nd with my second baby. before i found out i was pregnant i decided to move back to where our families are because we are in texas and they are in north carolina. his last deployment i stayed in texas with my daughter who was born when he had six months left so for those six months i was basically by myself with her and no help from anyone. my mom came down to see us for 2 days and that was the only time i saw any family and i only had one friend to talk to every now and then. i am dreading going through this again especially if i have to stay here in texas the whole year he is gone because i will have my newborn and my daughter will be 2 in july. i want to go home to be near family but it seems like such a hassle to pack up my entire home and move with two small children and do it all again a year later. any advice? has anyone been in this kind of situation before? im really confused and so unsure of what to do....
