How would you keep the hubby involved throughout the pregnancy if he is deployed?

ive been having him help me make pretty much every decision, tell him about every doctor appointment, and send him pictures all the time. and i ask for 2 copies of the ultrasound pictures so i can send one to him :)

 Are  you able to email or Skype?

Check out the Military Moms group as well. You'll find great support there.

 my hubby deployed when i was 4 months pregnant with our first, we were both 21. Take pictures of your growing belly, send sonogram pictures.

well my sons bio dad is a marine and it is very hard to keep him involved mostly because he didn't do much up until feb of this year. He was in japan my whole pregnancy and has only seen his son in person twice and jay is 4 years old. Luckily he has my b/f who he considers his daddy as a father figure. Just recently his bio dad came back into the picture and wants to be there for his son so we r working on easing him into the picture which isn't easy... I'm sure I could learn a few things or two from u ladies

I'm not a wife and have never been with a military man, but if I were in that situation, I would send photos/videos of the ultrasounds and my baby belly to him along with letters full of updates.
