I got pregnant just in time because if I hadn't and he left, I would leave again as soon as he got back. Then it would've been sooo much longer before we could start our family! Back-to-back deployments are my main motivation for taking my early out in April haha
Anyway, I was so worried that he would leave again before I was due, and we just found out his next tasking isn't until October and I'm due in May! Of course he'll miss a lot of milestones, but it's so wonderful he'll be here for the birth and the first 5 months :)
Such a relief!
