Procreate before or after deployment? One milspouse is struggling with this decision. She writes:
As I am new...I'm sure you've had this topic before, but my husband and I are trying to get pregnant before he goes. We had intended to try in January, but this [upcoming deployment] sort of forced our hand. I would love to see a topic on what experiences women have had with this. I hear some women say it saved them, and others that it was one of the loneliest times of their lives, and they wish they would have just waited until DH was home. We don't want to have children after 35, so we want to start now. If you've posted previously....maybe a refresher? It would be so helpful to me.
As you're aware, I haven't procreated at all, so I'm not qualified to weigh in on the subject. For those of you who have been through this, what did you choose to do, and why?
