I have an 18 month old daughter, and know that I want another child. The problem is that my husband is getting ready to deploy at the end of August. He was gone my entire pregnancy the first time, home for the birth while on leave, then gone the first six months of my dd's life. This deployment is only going to be a year, but I really don't want to be pregnant again with him gone. Not because I can't, I just want him to be part of the process. In addition if I wait until he gets home, there is going to be a re adjustment period. My dd is going to have to get used to daddy being home, and I don't want to get pregnant right away, until she is re adjusted to him being home, so she doesn't feel like she is losing her mommy and being pushed out of my lap. If I wait and take those factors into consideration, my children will be almost five years apart. I really didn't want that kind of age gap between them. Suggestions please?
