Due to the unpredictable nature of my husband’s job – it has gone from him not being here on my due date, to 99% sure he will be – to back to him not being here. As you can imagine there has been tears. Turns out he will be away down south (530 miles away) the week of my due date and away the following week, but a little closer to home. So basically the baby needs to come a little earlier – or late. Or it may all work out and as soon as I start feeling niggles, I will ring him and he will race (responsibly - breaking no speed limits) up and make it – which I’m sure he will. I just really want him to be there from start to finish - not sprinting in at the end. But I'm just thinking of the worst case scenario. (Would love a glass/bottle of wine right now.) At least he is in the county as I know a lot of women are having to deal with last-minute deployment to the Caribbean so I know I shouldn't complain. (Sending love ❤️) Just need to keep positive and I’m sure the baby will come when he/she is ready – which hopefully will be when my husband isn’t miles away! Is there anyone else in a similar situation or been in a similar situation? Any advice?
