Last few weeks.

So I am 33 weeks almost 34 weeks. I am starting to feel VERY VERY DH is being deployed this very weekend. Our family lives in another state and due to the economy being so rough its hard for them to travel. I can not travel obviously for very long periods of time. I am just wondering I know this is a MAJOR reason I am overwhelmed stressed....depressed.....but aside from what I told you. It is common to feel overwhelmed stressed and everything right????

  • Oh yes very common. You are normal. Just try to sit back and take a day to relax. See if you can straighten things out in your mind.

  • oh hun i'm so sorry hubby being depoyed. its totally normal to feel the way u do even if u werent pregnant u would feel this way. keep yourself active, and u'll have ur baby soon he/ she will keep u very busy. count on your friends we military wives have been there and know how it is. take lots of pictures and video so daddy doesn't miss anything. he'll be home soon. where are u guys stationed at?
