Oh My Goodness!

Just found out I'm preggo today. Not so happy. Its not a bad thing. But my hubby gets activated in December and deploys in April. I'll be due around the end of June. So, needless to say, I'm really scared and nervouse about doing this alone. All my friends live on the other side of town, or in a different town. This sucks. )= Oh and it better be a girl. I don't need 3 boys running around.

Oh congratulations! I know you said your friends live far off but I'm sure they'll be there for you. Can you get help from your parents or anything? Haha let's hope you do get a girl!
How did your husband take it?

OOh! Congrats! I know you said you aren't so happy but kids can be good when they can see you need help, I'm sure your boys will understand that mommy needs help?? and also a new baby!!!! Happy I'm sure your friends will help especially if they have army hubbys too!

I think it is time you got a girl as well!

Awww, Well there are two things to say, and whichever one I say, they can both be taken badly. So I'll say them both and explain Happy I'm sorry. I'm sorry that you have to go through this alone and your husband wont be able to see his child when it comes into this world, and its terribly sad. I'm sorry that your friends live far and that you've already got 2 little ones to take care of. I'm sorry about how stressed this is probably making you and I'm sorry about all bad things that children bring. But also, Congradulations! Because no matter how stressed out you get, how sad, how many times you cry, how much you will wish that your husband is here with you, When your little girl grows up [I'm just going with the more wanted option, so I'm going to call teh baby, a girl] you will be so incredibly happy you had her. You are going to have the unconditional love of yet another child and you will be able to try and raise another excellent person. This new bebe could be the new gandhi [in female form Happy ]. You are [I'm assuming] so happy you had your other two boys, and I'm sure you would never go back and change that you had them. You are going to be so happy to have this girl, and I'm excited for you that your going to get that much more oppourtunity to pass your genetics on. AND, If it is a girl, you could make her a complete little crafter [your guys could be little craftsters as well, but Guys may make fun of them untill they're a little older] and she could join our community! Happy That would be cute. Hows your hubby feel about it? Happy

Thanks for the support guys. I am happy, its just that I don't want to do this alone. And we were actually planning on trying when he got back. Sneaky little baby!

The hubby is excited but dissapointed that he won't be here for the birth. He said we just went from sedan to minivan status haha! Oh, and if its a boy/girl/alien we are done. LOL.

I'm getting a little excited but this is sure going to be a long hard road. And My dad lives and hour and a half away, and my mom on the other side of the country. But as soon as I find out the due date, she is taking 2 weeks off to be here for the birth, and help me out a bit.

And KK knit away! I'm sure everyones positive energy will ensure me a happy health baby girl!

Maybe you don't want this, but is there no way your hubby can get paternity leave?

haha I just got the imagine in my head of like some cells going 'I'm not waiting here for him to get back and then waiting another 9 months maaan!'

It's sad your husband won't be there for the birth though Happy when will he get back? will it be long after the baby comes? They should let men take maternity leave...or paternity leave I think it would be called, no matter what the job is.

We don't know what he can do yet. But we most likely will be either doing a web-cam or just have him on the phone.

The baby will be 4 months old when he gets home, Liam will be 2, and Gray will be 6.

That's so sad, he misses the first four months of his baby's life. Not to bring you down! I guess the [rubbish] truth is that you're gonna have to do this alone, so have to make the best of it, I suppose. It helps slightly that you've done the whole birth thing before, so you're not going it through the first time on your own (I bet THAT would be horrible)

uurgh I feel sad about it Happy

At least you can tell her that he was out there trying to help the world Happy You could keep a diary of when she kicked and stuff so he can read it when he gets back, measure your belly and get someone to take a picture of it once a month, and put the scan pictures in, so he can see it growing! And keep the diary going into a baby book when she's born and the last page can have a picture of baby and daddy finally together!

by the way Liam and Gray are gorgeous names Happy

Yeah your right kk. The first time would be horrible! I know a couple of girls through the net who were preggo the 1st time while their hubby's were deployed and then their men got killed. I don't even know how they can deal with that. I'm lucky he's going in now, there isn't to much going on there compared to the beggining of the war.

And Queenie, thank you. We worked really hard on finding kick ass names. (=

Oh that would be so horrible =( having to go through everything alone, and then having to raise the baby alone too!

When he comes back, will that be it? He'll be home for good?

That diary sounds like a brilliant idea. And if hubby sends you letters or whatever, you can keep them in there too.

Are you gonna find out the sex through scans or wait till she pops out?

well congrats, and don't worry, you got us!

and a diary does sound like a great idea.

I think I would like to be surprised about the sex of the baby.
