Anyone here get out of the military when they got pregnant?

I am currently in the Air Force, as is my husband, but after 8 years of service I'm finally getting to start my family. I thought I could do it with childcare and whatever, but my priorities have radically changed and I am now going to put a lot of effort into getting out of my contract or at least switching it for the Reserves or Air National Guard. Has anyone else done this? I could use some advice on how to proceed and when and just anything to help me do it better would be great. Thanks!

I got out while pregnant but just waited out my contract. Both times I found out I was pregnant when I took the paper from medical to turn in they where required to council me on my options. One of which was to request for discharge. Have you turned in your paperwork to your command? If not start there. If you have contact your command or personel. Good luck as I know it depends on the needs of the service nad how staffed your job is. I just happened to luck out and be at the end of my 8 yrs. as I found out they would not have left me out. If you have any questions please let me know.
