We had a baby about 3 months before he deploted and he felt like he was going to miss out on a baby so, we planned to get pregnant again right before he left when he came home the girls were 5 months and 16 months. It worked out well for us. He wanted to be there for all of the "firsts" and he was. Our latest daughter was born two weeks after he left for training to go to Afghanistan. He saw a her a handful of times and left. He'll be back when she is 13 months old.
