17 Pregnant and Engaged... Terrified

hello my name is devin i just recently turned 17 and i am 5 months pregnant... my fiance is about to sign a 6 year contract for the army and i am going through a very hard time taking this all in.. it is hard for me to talk to him about this because it makes him not want to go.. i dont want to get in the way of what he wants to do. but i also dont want him to leave and never come back.... is it normal for me to feel this way? is there any possible advice or comforting that can be given? im scared.... i am open to ANY advice....

Tell him how you feel and let him know that you aren't trying to stand in the way of his dreams. When you get married it will be a lot easier too. The military is a pain in the butt but it also has it's advantages. Think of the good things that come along with it. My husband is a marine and hes been to iraq twice and it's been hard but it's also made our relationship stronger. If it wasn't for us holding things down our men wouldn't know what to do. Keep his spirits high and it won't be long before you have a little one to keep you busy. I'm always here if you need someone to talk to. Take care and I wish yall luck.

yeA it is normal for u to feel this way i am goin through tha same thing but im not pregnate but in the long run its good that u are b/c it will kind of keep your mind off him not being around jus keep your head up and just like evryone has been telling me u are goin to be a miltary wife one of the strongest woman alive we are what keeps the soilders alive!!! message me if you need anymore advice

it's normal because you are scared but you are also right because you have fears you dont want to be responsible if he changes his mind to join the army when i told my husband my feelings he would sometimes brush them off and say dont worry but explain that these are your fears and you are not getting in the way of his dreams
