So some good news, I just got married! Now to start the newlywed year off next year alone! lol Army life, here I come.
omg congrats thats so exciting!! I wish you all the best in your marriage. It's actually our 1 year anniversary coming up, which I will spend alone but we celebrated it early this year..
Thanks!! It's really exciting to get married and realize that nothing has changed. lol He leaves in March for BCT and AIT and won't be back until around Dec. What a way to spend the new year! lol I just hope he will be back in time to see our baby turn 1. I only have a few more weeks to go and then my little boy will be here!
Just wondering, are there any other ladies here who are currently pregnant with a deployed OH? Or anyone who has recently been in this situation?
My husband is deployed until sometime early next year (not sure if he'll be back before or after the baby comes... but oh well) and I would looove to talk to some other girls who can relate to some of the things I'm feeling at the moment! With nesting instinct kicking in my brain is going into a loop of frantically preparing things and being anxious to have my husband back safe and sound RIGHT NOW. The second trimester was a breeze emotionally, but I feel like I'm going crazy all of a sudden. I just need to get through the next few months, but I am so impatient and restless. I hate how normal deployment anxieties are magnified by pregnancy hormones. Grrrr.
I'm not pregnant, and my DH isn't deployed at the moment (although he is away during the week and has been deployed before). But I don't live terribly far from you. I'm in Folkestone until he's posted around February time.
Is anyone's guy getting out soon? Just wondering about the transition
my boyfriend medically retired from the army in June of this year. it has been a rough transition period with all the paperwork and waiting on the VA to give him his ratings. he has had a hard time finding a job mainly because of his injuries so we're just playing the waiting game with VA still. However, since he was injured in combat he signed up to get a house from the wounded warriors program and we found out yesterday that they are awarding us one out by my family. so there really are some programs out there to help military transition its just a matter of looking!
Thanks my husband has PTSD and hearing loss and knee problems from his service. He is getting disability from the va after he gets out. He is already got job offers though. S that is good, he is just worried he won't know what to do with his life after he gets out, he was in for 8 years.
my boyfriend was in for 6 and he also has PTSD he worked doing security for a couple months but he couldnt deal with the hours and his PTSD got worse. if your husband is willing there are transition counslers to talk to but honestly i think if he has job offers he'll be ok it'll just be a change
