I’m sorry that it was moved up.  You will be able to handle it, I’m sure.

Military families choose to put up with this kind of thing. The country doesn’t force our SO’s into service. My husband is deployed/underway 60-80 percent per year, every year.

Hugs hugs hugs. I know how it goes. This war is insane. My marine deployed 4 times and he’s only been in 6 years (including SOI and everything).

 

It gets better, mostly because you teach yourself how you deal with it best (which is different from all the ways that people tell you to cope).

 

And, it is definitely good to get it out of the way so you don’t have to be pregnant alone, or have the baby with him gone. I’ve had friends go through that and it is just TOUGH.

 

 

All the best to you and your man.

@jindc: I totally understand what you’re saying. What I’m saying is your fiance does not have to be in the military if he shares your sentiments- he has had opportunities to return to the civilian sector and live a more normal existence.

I’m not saying your beliefs are are right or wrong- to throw my own totally awesome quote out there: “With great power comes great responsibility.” (Uncle Ben, Spiderman). Just another view.

I’m right there with you.

My fiance is Army and starting in March he will be in and out of state and trainings/meetings whatever for a deployment that isn’t until summer. But with the dates he already has for Army stuff our honeymoon will basically be our last chunk of quality time.

We plan to TTC when he comes back, so in a way I’m glad he’s going now for the money and all, and we’ve done this before, but it’s this waiting for it to all get started…sucks big time.
