YOU CAN DO IT!

STAYING STRONG

How military  spouses  can  make   the  best  of  their  pregnancy   despite  deployments.  

Oh Baby!

We’re Expecting! Finding out that we’re expecting was the best news our little military family received this year. Although I’ll be spending my time on the home front and hubby will be spending his on a naval ship, we couldn’t feel more blessed. As a first time mommie-to-be, this gift guide is really close to my heart. No matter what stage of mommiehood you’re in you deserve to feel special. There are so many goodies packed into this guide to help you do just that. Wishing you all the very best and praying that you and your loved ones stay blessed. Enjoy!

STAY POSITIVE   Expecting  a  precious  addition  to   your  family  is  an  experience  that   both  parents  should  share.   Deployments  during  such  a   special  time  can  be  very   stressful  for  both  parents-­‐to-­‐be.   Making  it  a  point  to  stay  positive   will  alleviate  unwanted  stress.     STAY  IN  TOUCH   Use  whatever  communication   tools  are  available  to  share   updates  on  the  progression  of   the  pregnancy.  Giving  updates   about  doctor  appointments,   sending  selfies,  and  sharing   emotions  gives  a  feeling  of   closeness  even  while  apart.     STAY  STRONG   Loneliness  is  not  an  emotion   that  should  be  hanging  around   during  what  should  be  one  of   the  happiest  times  in  your  life.   Having  the  support  of  family   and  friends  is  a  necessity.
