Hi ladies, Well my hubby dropped a bombshell. We have found out that 2 weeks after my due date he is being deployed At first I cried (and cried and cried), now i've resolved that this is the life we lead being in the forces and I should get a grip but I still feel like poo Now there is a twist to this story - they have said that he can delay his deployment by a month which is great as he will be guaranteed not to miss the birth but if he chooses this option his deployment will be a month longer than the original one! So we chatted and decided that the first option looks like the best as I will be alone with the baby for a shorter time and he wont be missing too much of LO's first months. It will be hard enough as it is but I dont have family near by so the less time he is away the better really. I am now nervous in case I go overdue that he might miss the birth as I know they dont induce till about day 12 at my hospital. Do you think, if I do go overdue, they might consider inducing me a bit earlier if I explain our situation?
