Ok girls, here's my story. I am about 5 weeks pregnant (due around Feb'ish) and my husband's tour is up in January 2013. He is freaking out because he doesn't want me to be in the middle of moving to who only know where when I'm a million months pregnant. I keep telling him that everything will be okay. Anyway, he was talking to his station commander who told him that if I am getting ready to deliver, or have just delivered that they won't PCS us and they will possibly give him a 3 - 6 month extension. If I know anything about the military it's that the mission comes first and it's up to you to worry about your family/home life. So I guess I have a 2-part question here. Has anyone ever moved while 9 months pregnant and or with a newborn? Also, has anyone heard of extensions being granted because of pregnancy/newborn issues? I am of the firm belief that we will find a way to work it out whatever happens, but I am just curious. Thanks for your help.
***update*** So my husband called his command (or whoever he would have needed to call - I'm still new to the army life) and they said that since his tour is up in January then they go to the end of that month then they add on 30 days of leave and his report date won't be until sometime in March anyway. I'm not sure if this is helpful to anyone here who had similar questions, but it did make him (and me) feel better. I know that stuff with the army can change at any time, so we aren't going to carve that in stone just yet, but he is feeling less stressed now. Thank you for all of your stories and advice. This way I can also get my daughter settled in the dorms before we leave so - 2 birds.
