My boyfriend, bestfriend,support system, and someone that means the world to me left today. He's not going over seas just yet but he left to boot camp. He is in the marines and is in infantry(i know he's insane). He'll be back on September 25,2009 then leaves again october 5, 2009. he'll train until April and be deployed to Afghanistan. I've been a complete reck today. A second hasnt gone by that i havent cryed. I understand i basically signed up for this when me and him got togehter but people always need support. Im sure im not the only person that has gone or is going through this. He means alot to me, but i am still pregnant, and i really need advice on how to stay calm and not try and put to much stress on myself. I only have 2 weeks left but i also dont want stress while my baby is here either.
If you have gone through this pregnant or not,
how did you cope?
what did you do not to think about them?
I sometimes feel stupid for being so dramatic, everyone says that there is no need for me to cry that he'll be back, but its always hard, & when i do cry im not just crying because he is gone at boot camp but because of how tough its going to be and how i hope that he stays strong and remembers that im here praying for him everynight!
thank you ladies.
i hope i can get some help!

My husband is in the Air Force, not quite as extreme as the Marines, but still just as hard.



I'm here for you if you ever need to talk. Its hard to go through the deployments. Its always good to have a separate support system other than your boyfriend since he won't be there all the time. A good friend and a trusted family member is what helps me get through the deployments.

Ok its just boot camp what are u gonna do when he does deploy and he is not deploying he just left for boot camp he has no unit for him to know he is deploying and he is NOT a marine he won't be a marine till he gets done with boot camp and he may of went into boot camp infantry doesn't mean he will come out infantry he just might cause that's the only space open in the marines right now but anyways he will be done in 3 months
