My husband is deploying soon. I know a lot of you ladies have gone though this, so any advice?
Anything at all would be helpful! <3 :)

My advice would be to make some plans to keep yourself busy while he's gone, it will make the time go by much faster.

((hugs)) my dh was in the Navy so I know how much deployments can suck. The main thing I can say is just do your best to keep busy that way your not thinking about your dh being gone 24/7.

Do not move home...  Stand on your own feet...  Find something for you to do that you like (crochet, scrapbook, bake, read, whatever)...

Just 9 months. Afghanistan. I'm staying here, moving back home with an almost 2 year old and 5 months pregnant does not appeal to me. :) I'm making a lot of new friends! :)
