After two deployments with the girlfriend title I can relate. Ask your boyfriend if any of the other guys have girlfriends going through the same thing and come up with your own little support group.  Getting involved in a program that sends out care packages this will give you some support from people who have dealt with the military.  I know you mentioned infertility costing a ton of money but look at it this way you now have 9 months to possible get a part time job and save all of that money to put towards it and it will be a great way to keep you busy so the time goes by.  And if you happen to get pregnant without it then you have some extra money to get some cute maternity clothes.

 

Best of luck. You will have your rough days but you will get through it.

@Oneeleven: Are you ready enough for a civil ceremony?

And, if this is not cool, then ignore it, but would you consider freezing his sperm, and do the turkey baster thing monthly while he is away?

 

I don’t know, this is a really tough one. I am so sorry you are dealing with this. It’s always so hard when he deploys.
