View Full Version : Here we go again...
Now he is gone for another 2 months. 60 days to be precise - and I will be 30 weeks pregnant when he gets home.
I hate dropping him off at work knowing that I'm not picking him up again. I never know what to talk about; do we turn on the radio? Talk about the local news? The weather? Or maybe just sit in silence? Do I tell him that the plumber is coming this afternoon? Or talk about my obs appointment tomorrow that he will miss out on?
What do you ladies hate when you drop your partners off for lengthy exercises/deployments?
I am so hearing you Ally. I hate the day before and morning of a deployment. I will NEVER get used to it! I never feel like I am saying the right thing, so usually just say very little. Best thing about having kids is they tend to take the spotlight off you, as we both are usually reassuring them that dad will be back before they know it, etc, etc.
I was in your position during my first pregnancy, DH went on deployment from the time I was 13 weeks until I was about 27 weeks, so a major change in my overall look when he got back...and this was in the days pre defence force emails!! It made the pregnancy go faster though, as I was focusing on him getting home, as well as the fact that I was growing a baby, gave me something else to think about and :crying: over when I was hormonal!
:fingerscrossed: that it goes really fast for you. I am still readjusting to DH even being back in, and gone all wek, so feel free to gripe, as I know exactly what it feels like at the moment.
:hugs: for you.
sorry to thread crash but Ally just want to give you some of these :hugs: :hugs: remember im always up for lunch and a chat!! I know its no where near the same but if you need to vent or take your mind off things I have an over active 10 month old :D :hugs:
1 day down. Hang in there, it must be very difficult for you but atleast he will be home for the birth of your special little bundle.
For me, I hate the packing stage. I sit on the bed and cry whislt DP goes through all his stuff & packs it into his trunk... it seems to take so long. Before he left for this deployment, he wanted to pack his entire wardrobe into boxes so I would have more room - no way! I wanted to open the door and still see his stuff hanging in it... i didnt want it to feel like he had dropped off the face of the earth.
We fight alot leading up to the deployment, usually not the night before or the morning of though. We will talk about other things that arent related to his work or the time apart... i dont think there is anything you can do to make it any easier, just ride out the waves & get through one day at a time.
I have a countdown calander but I dont start it straight away - after a month or so, I mark off all the days that have gone by and it feels like we are getting somewhere.
