Long story short, found out I was pregnant 2 weeks after he left on deployment (i was lucky to come back to mainland and work and continue school while he was away and I was able to be with family).....Im now 33 weeks and due to our very close PCS (2-3 weeks after baby's due date) I didnt move back to Hawaii after his deployment was over. We move from Hawaii to California so Im staying on mainland while hes in Hawaii until baby is born and then we move.
Well Im getting nervous about him missing the birth. Its good to know the due date but theres only a slight chance of that actually being the day. So far I have no complications.....but Im afraid my water will break or something and by the time I notify him and he gets a ticket and makes the 5hr flight over the ocean plus any additional flights and drive time that it will be too late and i would of had baby already.
Basically not much I can do....it was too much for me to change OBs and doctors when Im so far along so thats why Im staying mainland and cant be with him.
Anyone have a birth story where their partners made it in time? My friend suggested using skype if he absolutely cant make it, one said to be induced but I dont want to unless I absolutely have to and I want to carry full term. I know things can change so fast in labor and stuff.....I guess Ill just have to pray and hope hes here and keep him updated and ask lots of questions at my OB appointments.....
