My husband has been gone a month so far and will not return for another 2, my due date is in 28 days. I have gotten extremely more hormonal and just sad that he is gone and won't be around for the delivery, much less until our baby boy is about 6-7 weeks. I am trying to stay strong but this is so hard. Not too mention seeing couples and families together just hurts my heart. I am hoping once I have my son, my heart will be full once again until my husband returns. I do have a question for anyone who has some advice, I am with my mother in law now just so I would have someone to help take care of me and be around when I do have baby. I will be making a 12 hour drive back to our duty station when baby is about 6-7 weeks old, to meet husband for his return. Is this a stupid idea? Should I have my mother in law travel with me so it is easier? I am just concerned about trip. Please any advice is appreciated. And any ladies out there doing this on their own, you're not alone and it is not easy. This military life can be so hard sometimes. Stay strong.
