Disappointed

I am disappointed that we are going to miss a friends wedding becuase of this baby. A good friend of DH's from University, is having a whirlwind engagement and just informed us they are getting married in Florida (3 hr flight or 20 hr drive away) on March 25th. That is the day before my C-section. I would love to go and feel even worse that DH can't really go. If it was even the weekend before I would let him go on his own but not the day before. I have been bugging DH to go somewhere warm and now we have a place he would actually go and we can't. Just a bit bummed about it all.

That stinks. I have a cousin getting married in Kansas at the end of March when I'll be 38 weeks pg, so I'm going to miss her wedding too. It sucks because I adore her and would really love to go, but there's no way I'm driving 12 to 14 hours at 38 weeks pregnant and with a 17 month old. My point is I can relate to the disappointment, although, if my cousin was getting married in Florida I'd be a little extra sad since I've always wanted to go to a clear blue water beach.

BOO!!! I have a friend that's getting married April 14th and my EDD is April 18th. The wedding is 5 hours away which means I probably won't get to go. HOWEVER, since my kids are usually late anyway I may try to make it.

Sad I can imagine Sad I'm not missing anything fun, but my DH has to drive 500 miles away to pick up my stepson for Spring Break in the same time frame that doctors will likely be trying to force me into a c-section (I'll be 38 1/2 weeks then). Thankfully, my ex-MIL (who is the most awesome MIL ever) is willing to come stay with the girls and I just in case.

I know nothing replaces getting to be there to share a day like that though. Maybe you can plan to do something relaxing that day, like getting a pedicure?

Bummer for your DH.

I'd be totally okay with not going. I couldn't imagine wanting to get dressed up / do anything being still pregnant. haha

That stinks. As far as I know I'm not missing anything fun but there's always the possibility that DH will be in the field when I go into labor leaving me to freak out on people to get him to the hospital (lol that could be fun right?) since next month they start their build up for next deployment.

I'm sorry you don't get to go, esp because FL sounds nice to go to! Maybe DH can go out and visit his friend the weekend before and have a boys weekend? And while he's doing that you can pamper yourself that weekend too?

We know how you feel, DH and I are going to miss his brother's wedding and his best friends wedding. Both are getting married literally the week of my due date (one in upstate NY and the other in PA) and we are in FL so no way we can travel that far, especially since we'd have to drive cause we can't really afford five plane tickets. On another note we'll be able to send a nice gift since we don't have to spend money on travel. I know that's not nearly the same but we are trying to look at it as positively as possible. I feel torn about feeling guilty over missing their weddings because our baby is due and we are ecstatic about the baby... it's not easy, but try to feel as positive as possible and remember you are having your own special moment.

Bummer about missing the wedding and getting that last FL beach getaway before baby arrives. I can totally understand.

Have you made sure you have the info for Red Cross (I think that's who I had to keep info for), and they will IMMEDIATELY pull your DH out of the field. We lived on a training base, and DH was in the field constantly, so I was always nervous about it.

I have the Red Cross info and when I get closer to my due date I'm going to get other numbers. I have the XO's wife's number (she and I are friends...she's actually due like 4 days after me!) and when I had my m/c the hospital told me if he was out in the field they would get a hold of him (before they knew he was deployed at the time).
