Don't mean to be rude, I just was hoping this would be where I can find other military mom's to be and see how they are coping with being pregnant and in the military. I hate the talk that goes on while being on a ship once they find out you are pregnant, even though I completed my 2 tours on that terrible ship. How's everyone else dealing?
Please someone with knowledge answer this. I am 31 weeks pregnant. I have little to no appetite, really hungry just don't want to eat. I want nothing more than to sleep all day. I have no energy. What's wrong with me? Is my baby going to be ok?
I heard that there is a bill to be signed by the Senate stating that active duty military women with get 12 weeks of maternity leave instead of the normal 6 weeks. I believe this bill is supposed to take affect in 2015, and updates on that?
My husband is in the army, but isnt active right now. Although his job is very demanding and just informed us that he will be leaving for Colorado this sunday (four days). Also I am 37 weeks pregnant. His boss said they will fly him home when i go into labor and will let him stay for a week or so. Then he will have to go back for a couple of months. Never being apart from my husband, this has me extremely upset. How does everyone cope with that? I know circumstances could be much worse, I'm just not used to this. Plus throughout this pregnancy I have had a lot of emotional breakdowns and had to be put on Welbutrin. Im very dependent on my husband right now due to hormones and I'm terrified what I'm going to do without him in this last month and afterwards.
I still haven't had my first appointment. Sometimes I really dislike having to use military bases. Every time they have different rules and stupid classes you have to take before your first appointment. With my first they made me take a nutrition class that was filled with kids half my age, for my second they made me wait until I was 15 weeks, this time they are making me have a genetics counseling even though I have done it three times now and my other two are perfectly healthy.
I don't even mind waiting for appointments since the first couple they never did much. I just want the peace of mind having a due date and knowing how many babies I am carrying, and that they have heartbeats. Why can't they do that before all the stupid genetics crap?
Hi ladies my fiancé is deployed .. I'm also pregnant with our first child "it's a baby girl" 💕 I'm now 33 weeks , he had left when I was 19 weeks over seas ... I know there isn't a chance with him coming back just for child birth but does anyone have advice for me on what to do when I go into the hospital , will I have to call the Red Cross to get into contact with him right away so he can at least FaceTime or Skype threw the birth ... I would love to hear your stories if you ever had to go threw a situation like this one :) thanks
