I'm due Dec 2 but we're supposed to PCS mid January. If I go back to the states my husband might miss out on the birth of our child. And I don't know if they'd let me take my shiba inus back with me so I know they won't be left behind in Japan. I'd stay with my mom but she smokes and has a cat. But she does live super close to the hospital where she works and where I used to work.
In all honesty I am not too excited about this pregnancy. When I went to medical and the nurse showed me the results of the test I broke down. I can't bring myself to get an abortion either. My husband is excited he's finally getting a kid and I found out my mom had one before I was born (I'm the oldest). It's not fair. The care here has been awesome but I'm really annoyed I'd have to go to another base to give birth.
Our house is too small and I can't get my husband to clean up his crap. Our other bedroom has all his stuff in it- he's like a kid himself. I don't trust him to pack up our stuff and make sure the house is clean before he leaves. He wants to extend here and I don't. I miss Walmart!
I was trying to finally lose this weight but now I'm going to get even bigger now. My main worry is how my dogs will react to the baby. They've never hurt a child before. The thought of having to give them up brings me to tears. My one dog has already had 2 owners before she turned 1.
