View Full Version : Calling Any Wifes or Mothers with DH on HMAS Sydney
Well if you are like me this weekend just past was just not enough.
I am glad they are only gone for 3 days this week though.
My DH and I are right in the middle of IVF and he had to fight tooth and nail to get two weeks off during the URE so he could be here for me.
They have had so much sea time in the past 18 months I just dont know when enough is enough.
Someone said to me the other day "you have been lucky to have him home for 3 months". I dont class that as lucky if he is gone for the other 9 months of the year.
BUT I LOVE HIM!!! I guess that what makes it all worth while right??
Anyway post a line. I am sure we are all sharing something in common....:hugs:
Oh Sam :hugs:
I do not have a hubby on Sydney but I do have one in the Navy on another ship. We too are going through IVF at the moment and it looks like it has not worked for us. I have started to spot today and he has just left on deployment and will not be back for almost four months.
It is so hard trying to fall pregnant with some issues or none at all and they are away alot.
Yes loving them is what makes it better but some days are much harder then others.
If you ever want to chat please just drop me a line. :)
My hubby isn't on Sydney - he's on Ballarat who is doing the sea-trials with Sydney this week (I think they were with them last week too)
If its any consolation, I have a really bad day about once a fortnight. Today got so bad that I was on the phone to CSA to find out what my single-parent entitlements would be :(
How long does he have left of his sea-time??
Reminder ladies it's not a good idea to discuss what ship your DH is on or what they are doing in a public forum.
Hi MrsPee - when was your blood test due?? Dont stress too much. If it is only light spotting it could just be an implantation bleed. Have you spoken to your FS yet?? I am here if you need to talk about anything. Trying to get pregnant with your partner in the Navy through IVF seems impossible but the end result is what gets you through.
Milk On Tap - I have friends on ballarat. It gets hard esp seeing as they have been in Melbourne for so long. Are you in Sydney?? Are they coming home now?? I am exactly the same as you. Once a week though usually when he is away I just loose it and cry and carry on. I am pretty strong most of the time though. I love him so much though I just could never leave him. He has already done 2 years on Sydney even though his posting was for 18 months and doesn't look like getting off anytime soon.
It's hard - really hard - but I just remember how he makes me feel inside when he tells me he loves me and I get through.
Just try to remember the good times and know you have support here and hope it is enough to get you through.
I am here if you need anything ok :hugs:
