Hello all! I'm new here. I'm needing to connect and get some advice/encouragement from others who have gone through child birth while your husband was getting ready to deploy or was deployed. My husband will be mobilized when I am due with our first child so he'll still be in the states but not close to home and we're not sure he'll get to come back when the baby is born (might have to wait for his weekend break before flying over seas a month later). I'm nervous and scared. He's in the reserves so at least I have my family here. But, I also have no one around to really relate to my situation.
