Hi I am Patty and my DH is Dennis this is our story.
I have 2 children from my EX Britney (11-10-92) and Jonathan (4-26-1997) My Dh has one adopted stepson from his EX Billy (7-4-88 ). Me and DH has one child togeather Tylena (6-23-2005) and one on the way due date 4-11-2007. My Dh is in the Army we are stationed at Fort Richardson, AK right now. I am a SHAM.
We got married on 4-21-2001 and had a big wedding on 9-15-2001. I put my name on the TR list in Sept of 2001. My DH left for Afgan. in March 2002 and returned late Sept 2002. On December 10 2002 we had the TR. My DH again deployed Feb. 2003 and returned Jan. 2004. We got PG with little jumper in August 2004 my EDD was 4-26-2005 but lost the baby at 10w. We then got pg in Nov. and my EDD was 8-3-2005 we had Tylena on June 23, 2005 due to low fluid. We decied we would not try again until after he got back from Iraq again. We went on a cruise on July 9, 2006 and he left Ga ( where I am from) July 20, 2006 to come back home for JRTC training. He then Left for JRTC training ( Ft. Polk, La.) on August 3, 2005.
On August 4, 2005 I was laying in bed asleep woke up around 3am and thought to my self I should have started. Well I waited to Sat night to take a HPT and load and behold I got 2 lines. I was in total shock and scared as I knew my DH would not be around for the PG and posably even the delivery. I had no way of telling him as he was not aloud to call. my plan was to tell him when he got home around August 27th. I went to the ER on August 6,2006 to make sure it wasn't in my tubes before I flew home on the 9th. It wasn't and my HCG was 7,321.
On August 15 my Ob had me to come in and do another u/s and they didn't see a hb. I was 5w6d and my HCG was in the 23,000. She scared me as she said she should see one by now but come back in 2 more weeks. That night I called the FRG lkeader and she called Capt Laz which called me back. She was awsome and understood that I wanted DH to know just in case. After hanging up with her my DH was on the phone with me in 15min. I told him he was scoked, happy and sad all in the same breath.
Well I couldn't wait 2 weeks so on 8-20-06 I went to the ER I was 6w4d and we had a HB of 131. I was so excited as I was already attached. I sent a Red Cross message to him to let him know. They was in what is called the BOX and no one but Red cross could get ahold of them. Finally Kin his platon SGT talked to her DH on the 24th( on my b-day) and he said as far as he knew my DH didn't get the message but would tell him. I still haven't talked to him but he will be home in just 2 days.
