So while I was pregnant with my daughter (most of 2009) my DH's work sent him to Oklahoma (we live in Central Texas) for months at a time. He missed all but one midwife appointment, we had to delay the sex ultrasound until I was 25 weeks so he could get here, and they even wanted to send him for my 9th month.. I was due Sept 9 and they had no problems sending him Sept 1. I finally put my foot down and told him he WASNT GOING. He had to explain to his bosses and they gave him major crud about it. Almost derailed his promotion.
Cut to THIS pregnancy, and guess what. They're sending him to Corpus Christi. All week, every week, till God knows when. At least this time he's close enough to be home on weekends, but it still means he'll miss every appointment. He's working 60-70 hrs a week, and getting paid hourly, so I can't complain about the money, we really need it, but holy snot are they doing this ON PURPOSE?
It doesn't help that I'm heading into that super-randy 5th month and he's gone 6 days a week. There's not enough batteries in the world for this.
Mama to DS T (10/11/2004) and DD M (09/03/09) and cookin' up baby #3 due late March/early April 2010!
