Hello!!! — The Bump
Military Families


I am currently 24 weeks and my boyfriend is deployed. The baby is due in April and he returns after the baby is born. I was so  happy to see a place for military partners and spouses who are expecting. There are so many questions that I have found answers to and am very greatful. 

The biggest question I have is how to register the baby for tricare while he is deployment. I do  not want to wait until the last minute since I know there is a time limit for enrolling and we would be cutting it very close if we waited until he returned. I don't like cutting it close at all.  


Re: Hello!!!

  • Congrats and welcome! Please take out the month of his return, little pieces of information like that are considered OPSEC violation. Something vague like "he'll be home soon after the birth." Also, you will not be able to register the baby in DEERS because you are not married. He will have to do it. There's a post a few threads down about a similar issue. Hopefully that one has the info you need.
