Tell me are there any other military wives on here with this problem? This is our first child and I am due June 3, 2009. BUT my hubby isnt due home until mid June. They keep telling me they will send him home early if I want but I cant help but be scared something will happen and he wont make it home in time and I'll be stuck doing this alone! I know I COULD but I dont want to. Someone please calm my fears!!!!!!!!

Yes..I'm sort of in the same situation...I'm due in 4 weeks....my hubby is going back into the army...will probably be leaving next week...he's going to go ahead of me & our son to get things situated and find us housing....He is being told that it will not be an issue for him to take leave to come back for the birth of our second son and to finish moving us all up there....and usually when they have the leave available...it isn't an issue....but nothing is ever guranteed. Has he taken mid tour leave already? If he hasn't it will most likely definitely be more guranteed than not...but the military can be pretty understanding when it comes to the birth of their children....I'm sure everything will be ok....Good Luck!bump

My husband was on his way to Iraq when I went into labor but he was able to make it home in time. Do you have family close by? Everything will be fine trust me

Oh yeah...out of all the branches(in my opinion) Air Force is the most sympathetic...and usually do everythng to take care of their guys. But i understand that the unknown is a little scary

I understand how you feel my husband deployed when I was 11 weeks preggers bascially a week after we found it was twins. I am now having my c section the 25th of this month but his company knew I was pregnant and they are going to have him here a couple of days before so he can be here for the birth.

My advice tell ur hubby to kiss his CO's ass lol and have the red cross phone number handy in ur wallet speed dial on ur phone like I do.

GOOD LUCK SWEETY

i am sorry I saw this and totally started laughing because it IS SOOOO true! the NAvy is pretty bad, we waited till we were a year from shore duty to make sure he would be here for this baby...(he was on a semi-set schedule) I had a friend her hubby missed their first kid by 3 days, and she was SICK  with her second and last, yeah, the boat he was on at the time said they would be home in time, then when she had a dr send out a notice demanding him back, yeah, long story short he was home for the birth but the boat he was on kicked him off, which forced him to do 18 more months sea duty when he had 6 months left.. it was ridiculous!.. anyways, girl, I feel for you so much! there is a program( operationspecialdeliveries.com) that will provide a birth doula free of costs for spouses with deployed LO... sooo you may want to check into it:)
