My spouse deployed Thursday and TTC mentioned

Well girls my spouse deployed this past thursday and I amazingly I am doing pretty good after a 4 year break on shore duty. Thursday in morning my husband and I drudged throu the nice slushy wet snow to the Restraunt here on base. For people that know me here know why I wasnt driving. You here dont Because I dont have my license because of a severe brain injury from when I was two. So while hes gone I rely on the bus system that comes here on base while our 2007 Honda Crv sits in the Garage. Wouldnt want to drive that car because its cursed anyway.

Okay crossing the main street well people around here drive like a**holes, well road hogs cant even wait for there own shipmates that are trying to cross the street. So fastforward like an hour and all the guys got on the bus I stood there waving as he waved back from his seat. Me and my friend the few veterans of the boat that were there talked while the more newer at this stood there falling to pieces. After they left (the buses) well me and my friend gave the Newbies hugs and let them know about the FRG.

I have not fallen to pieces yet but do miss him at night. I am busing taking care of the cats well ones depressed and his nicknamed his "Prozac" thats his cat and the other cat the girl "Valium" is going bonkers looking for her Daddy which is strange thats my cat. But she normally high maintenance so whats New anyways.

Maybe as the deployment goes further down I might be more affected but right now I am going to remain strong. Though on an interesting note I found out while my cycles are so wacky apparently I havent been ovulating so she put me on Provera. If I have two good cycles my new GYN ( I love her) will start stimulating my ovaries before he gets back so we can start trying again when he gets back! I can hear a WHO HO!

Wow nothing but good news this morning. I am so glad that you are at peace and not falling apart. I guess it is hard not having a spouse around to lean on. I think you are so strong for being a military wife. Good luck and keep up the positive vibes!

I'm sorry your hubby is gone...I have been through 3 deployments with mine gone so i know how you feel! I always try to just stay super busy! Hopefully he has email b/c that is what got me through the days! There will be lonely times but you can also take this time to do things for yourself-take on a few projects that will surprise him when he gets home! And after this time apart, hopefully you can TTC when he gets back and it'll work quickly! take care and if you ever want to talk, feel free to PM me!

So glad that you are feeling strong right now. It was wonderful that you were able to support the newbies. Great news about your GYN as well.

I guess you just have to take it one day at a time. Any idea when he'll be back? There seem to be quite a few military wives and women on this board so hopefully you can band together with them if it gets difficult.

I could never marry a military man, but it sounds like you are coping well.

Lets see what deployment is this? I did a 7 1/2 month 3 days after I met my spouse,a 6 month one 1 week after we got married, several, several tiny ones between a few days and several weeks and now this one so underways dont bother me to much anymore. I have a few projetcs I want to finish house wise for him so they keep me busy as well as the feline kids. Snickers ( Cosomic Creepers) the cat who has been depressed is start to come out of his Shell and be his usual bad self. Sydney Anna is still her high maintenace ways who loves to demand stuff out of me.

In reference to emails & family grams well thats harder than I thought. Family Grams they are not allowing this underway and emails could take awhile if they are to busy or under silence. My husband is not in the surface fleet side, hes usually the one being persued in War Games ( if they do those anymore). Hes the one looking up at them through the periscope planing their next move. If you havent caught it yet hes a Submariner. So they dont see daylight or the moonlight very often maybe only in port if that.

Lets see I have been his love one for almost 9 years and married to him for almost 7 years they dont get certain luxeries that other people in the fleet get. Emails and Instant Messaging well on his boat forget it. Havent tried the first one because the entire department that gets those messages has to read them so dont put any juicy stuff in there. LOL! I think that department loves their job, It makes their day when they hit the "jack pot". So pretty much phonecalls that are so few oh and oversees ports some one might be listening on his side it might be his buddy because I always hear snickering. So I never win. Isnt being a Military wife fun ?

Early May or so they said so the Blue Crew can take over. I only care if he returns by our 7th wedding anniversary on May 27th. But I still have over 9 years of this left! Hes been in the Navy for over 10 years and is up for E-7 (Chief) this year.

yes-you are one strong woman if your hubby is a submariner. it really does stink the way they can't email like regular ships but i guess i understand why...we have just been really lucky with deployments but we still have 6 years to go until retirement so it's not over yet! my hubby goes back to a ship in june so we'll see! i hope your hubby makes chief! mine is getting his commissioning for officer the end of this month but i remember when he made Chief-another hard/trying time for the military wife! it's like rushing a fraternity!

anyways, take care! do you ever get on the military board here? i haven't so i don't know how it is...

Sorry about your husands deployment. It certainly sounds like you are one strong lady. I cant imamgine how hard it must be to wave goodbye to him. I am really pleased you are staying strong and coping so well. Thats great news about you being able to TTC when your DH returns home. What a great homecoming for him!!
