Hey all! My DH is deployed and we're expecting our first in just about 2 months. AH SCARY! Anyway, we had originally intended on using facetime while I was in labor so he could be there with me as support and see his little girl be born. His bosses already told him to tell them when I get admitted to the hospital and to not come back to work until after she is born, which is super sweet of them. Unfortunately where he is the internet is bad... and lately it's been worse. FaceTime no longer works, Skype never worked, Facebook chat RARELY works. He really has to look at videos on his own time and that is it.
I'm sad that he won't be able to see all of this (though he was never going to be down there... but at least he'd see her when she was first born right away) and I'm surely going to miss hearing his voice and having his support. I will try to connect in the hospital but he always tells me to prepare for the worst so I will have someone there filming (again, facing my face... that is all) so he can see his daughter's first few seconds. And then of course I'll make videos for him every day until he gets home.
Pictures are easy but videos are tougher. I don't want to just post them on facebook because they aren't for everyone, they are personal. I hate the idea of everyone seeing things like that before he gets to. I've tried photobucket but hes worried about the privacy on there, and our email won't let us send big files like videos.
Does anyone here have experience with sending videos?
