Lost Without Him... and With a Baby

I met my boyfriend May 22, 2008. We hit it off right away and became incredibly close. By September we found out I was pregnant. It was a shock, but we were excited. I have a 3 year old, but this will be his first child. I have never been so happy as I am with Aaron. But, by December, the economy was really taking a toll on him. He is a carpenter and could not find work. I paid for things for as long as I could while he was looking for work, but he knew he had to do something. So, he decided to join the army. We were hoping he would be able to be home for the baby's birth, but unfortunately, he will not. The baby is due April 28Th and he will not be home until the middle of July. I write to him every day. I want to make sure we remain as close as possible. I am hoping I can visit him once he gets to AIT, but we won't know until then. So now here I am, raising my son and awaiting the arrival of our baby, without him. He has been gone for almost 2 months. I thought it would get easier, but its only getting harder. So now I guess my question is, Where do I go from here, how can I live my life and not miss him so much?

So many things went through my head...who can i do this all by myself, how will he feel about our child??? Uhh ot was awful! My husband will be gone until Feb. 2010.<br />

Bless, Just try to stay as busy as you can and know he is trying to make a better life for you all. Is marriage out of the question?x

Wow, my boyfriend is basic right now, and I miss him so much, I couldn't imagine having his baby while he was gone. Stay strong, I'm sure you'll get through, just don't be afraid to rely on friends and family some, I'm sure it will be hard with two children. Good luck, and congratulations on the new baby!
