My husband just left today for a year. He will be in the states for about two months for some training, then he will be going overseas. I am about due with our baby boy. Five weeks left. I was wondering if anyone knew if he could come home for the birth since he wont be overseas yet.

Wow thats scary. So your worried about your fiance going over to the paktia province? What is that?

I can relate to you and your situation my fiance is a staff ssg in the army and we just found out that I am 7 weeks prego and he is deploying to afganistan anywhere from dec to feb so he will be missing the birth and wont even be able to come home to see our baby till it's 4 to 6 months if not longer. I am so nervous about him going over there as well he is being sent to the paktia province and I have heard nothing but how bad it is there and he always says how theres a very good chance with this deployment he wont make it home and that he just has a bad feeling about it and it scares the hell outta me!

Thank you very much for your advice. I was just wondering, since you said your in afghanistan right now, is it safe over there? Im so nervous for my husband going over there. Is everything going to be okay?

he will be able to request this lets see if it is granted. many blessings for your family.
