    Good luck!!!
    I have a army hubby we started trying in April 10 he was away all may, july august, October and November!! He came back early December just after my "fertile period!" but magic happened!! According to 6,8,12 and 20 week scans this beautiful baby was conceived just 2 days before my period was due... I was wondering why it took so long to get a bfp!! lol!!
    Good luck af doesn't come because your baking a baby!!!

    I work FIFO, and we were TTC for about 18 months before we got our BFP last month. My roster changes around a bit, and it always seems to change at the worst time! I was doing 16/5 most of last year which ruined most opportunities. Things lined up about 6 times in the past 18 months, but we conceived on my first night back last time. So, very lucky to catch that one!

    Keep your hopes up, and try not to get too frustrated at your hubby for being away at the wrong times. I have no doubt he would be at home if he could, and is doing his hardest to get you guys into a great position in life. It's terribly difficult every time I have to get on that plane and leave my gorgeous DW at home.... even moreso now that we know she is UTD.

    Do keep reminding yourself. I know it's hard being at home by yourself, but being away from your loved ones, family/friends, your own bed and own food and quite often in a rotten climate is definitely no walk in a park. It's a choice we make, but often due to the money, it's a bit of a no brainer, and you have to at least try and make it work.

    Hopefully you have a good support network at home, that you can vent/lean on. Sometimes the nightly phonecalls/skype sessions just aren't enough. The last thing either of you need is to be biting at each other on the phone and resenting the choice you have made. If it gets like that, then there is no point continuing, and I have always told my DW that if it gets like that, then I will look for another job at home and sacrifice the extra money etc.
