  • just tell your dr..its nothing to be ashamed of..explain to her, youre stressed, you have no family to turn to, YOU NEED YOUR HUSBAND..being pregnant, im sure your doc will understand...afterall all he/she is worried about is your lil baby growin inside of ya!! take care of yourself and your baby!!

  • good luck getting your hubby home from basic (not sarcastic, i mean it). Depending on the branch and the specific command, they may not let him come home no matter the circumstances. As a military wife, I also have the joy of dealing with similar circumstances. Sorry to be a downer, but sometimes as a military wife, you just have to deal with him not being there. But you should DEFINITELY tell your doc about the stress and the lack of movement from the baby. I really hope things get better for you
