Hi everyone! My original due date was December 1st. At 12 weeks my ultrasound was measuring at exactly one week larger and doctor changed due date to November 24th. I have been resisting joining this group because I wanted a December baby. But oh well! It will be close anyways. I could have it in either one obviously! I have been posting in December but decided it was time to move here as well.
So to introduce myself; I am 21 and pregnant for the first time with first baby! I am 20 weeks today and super excited to be halfway. My husband and I have been married for a year and four months. He just signed on to join the Army as a helicopter repairer and is scheduled to leave October 1st. He WILL be gone when baby is born. I have struggled a bit with that and still will I am sure, but I know that I will be fine on my own. Giving birth without him doesn't scare me too much, as I am naturally inclined to think I would rather be alone. But I am sad that he won't see the baby until he/she is at least 3 weeks old, and after that not again until baby is 5 months. :( Not to mention I will miss him immensely.
It's all very inconvenient timing but we will adjust and I would be heartbroken now if I found out I wasn't having this baby. We are supposed to find out the sex on Friday!
