Chances of hubby deploying?

My husband just left for basic (army) on sunday, and I heard something today that made me almost cry hysterically. We just found out I am 7 weeks pregnant. When he is done with AIT i will be around 5.5/6 months along. One of my professors told me today that he could deploy as soon as we get to his duty station. Is this true?? He is 13 Delta, and we don't know yet where we will be stationed. I'm so scared he won't be there to see the baby born, and that I will be too far away from family for someone to come out last minute notice to be with me... Does anyone know the likelihood of him deploying immediately??  Thanks!

It's a possibility, however at this point no one can say for sure yes or no...

 Yes, it is possible he could deploy shortly after arrival at his first duty station.

No one here can answer about the likelihood.

13D... field artillery, correct? He went to Benning didnt he?

No, he went to Jackson. Which doesn't make much sense, because we live in Georgia, about 1.5 hours from Benning. Go figure :P

I really hope he'll at least be there for the birth and maybe the first month. :/

 I hope so to for you. But things happen. My husband missed the birth of our first born. Sometimes, you just cant control whats going to happen in the military.

Don't get ahead of yourself. There is no way to predict what will happen that far down the road. Its possible, but who knows. I hope he gets to be there.

It could happen. But, an asteroid could crash to the earth and kill us all. Don't worry about what might happen.

like others have said, it is the military things change. there is no guarantee he will be there, there is no guarantee he won't. With us, we were told that he was going to deploy before our wedding.. bumped it up a month, for him to be home, and my dad to be gone! *my dad got order 3 weeks before he deployed.. he would have missed our initial wedding date. he ended up leaving a week after we got married..my husband was suppose to be gone on our original date and ended up not leaving for a good 6 weeks after our original date. 

best military wife motto is 

"Prepare for the worst, hope for the best"
