So today is one month from the big day, i get a text saying “need to talk, deploying sooner than thought” So i panicked a little. He called a few minutes later. Thankfully it turned out that it wont effect wedding plans he will just be leaving 4-5 months sooner. Scared me though. On the up side his leave packet is in to his leadership and I get 5 or more RSVPS everyday. Sorry I guess this is a little pointless but needed to share with someone….arent you all so lucky 😉

Ahhh, so scary!!!
Good luck to you both and best wishes, and so glad it won’t interfere with your wedding plans!
I still worry about this.

Cheer up 🙂 There’s always someone out there who’se got it worse.
My FH deployed less than two months before our baby was due and missed the birth 🙁 I’ve got my date set for our wedding, but even that is still in question because he may deploy again in a year.
I’m happy your wedding plans are intact 🙂

@ms.charming: It always breaks my heart when i hear about deployments causing someone to miss the birth of their child.
I am very thankful that we will still be married this summer and I will have the next few months with him before he leaves.

Maybe leaving sooner means they are shortening the deployments, fingers crossed.
So glad they are not interferring with the wedding, sigh of big relief.

@cyndistar3: sorry dear, he almost gave me one too! how have you been. i have missed you since you went home.
sadly its still a 12 month deployment (at least thats what the “rumors” are) its not the first time we have been through this, I have just gotten spoiled with him stateside and having daily over the phone contact.

@hisgoldfish:One of my submariner friends said that their underways lined up exactly so that you could be there for the birth or the conception of their child, but not both.
Guess they had a lot of cheating. Blehch!
All the military mom-wives I know went through the birth of their child without their husband. (‘course I don’t know all that many of them.)
None of the military mom-wives I know are maried to submariners, so these stories are unrelated.
I’m sure that doesn’t help, and I’m sorry he’s leaving sooner. Know what that means, though? He comes home sooner, too!

@hisgoldfish: At least the wedding is still the same and we don’t have to go kill people 😉 I have been alright, I miss you too! Now my scrapbooking days are over haha. How are you? Are all your alterations about done yet?

Don’t you just hate how many blasted times they change deployment dates, or any plan in the military for that matter. DH & I learned to ignore everything because typically, about 95% of the time, they go back to the original date/plan. lol Soooo friggin annoying.
And I’m so happy it didn’t affect your wedding plans!!!

Good for you for handling it so well. My fi is currently out of the country and then I only get him back for 6 weeks before he deploys. I have little panick attacks they might not let him come home in-between at all 🙁
I really hope the tour is shortened for him, like some of the pp said
Re: having babies with our hubbys gone; we decided to wait ttc until after he returns for this reason. I hope we chose wisely
