I was in the army for 3 years when I met my husband, and I loved it. But now that I'm out, and he's still in, things seem impossible. With him gone on multiple deployments and me at home with our son alone for up to a year. I went through my entire first pregnancy alone. And now our son is 8 months old and I'm pregnant again. He is going for another deployment in the fall and I will have to go through childbirth alone (again) and through the newborn stage alone (again) only this time I will have a 13 month old to chase around as well. I feel so alone and hopeless.

I also was prior Army when I met my husband. He always seemed to get me knocked up right before he would deploy so I had to spend two pregnacies by myself and he also missed out on them growing up. It gets eaiser, I have a mirena now, so no more babies for 5 years lol and I'm getting my degree in Ciminal Justice so I'm plenty busy. He's about to deploy again very very soon so I'm planning everything from how to let the children know everyday that their daddy loves them but is over seas to keeping my head off of the fact he might get hurt. There is also plenty of women on and off base that can help you. Good luck!!!
