Military mama/wife

Sometimes being a military mom/wife is so difficult especially whenever my husband has duty(has to spend the night on the ship). I’m a first time mom and a student and lately I’ve been struggling with PPD on top of that. Whenever he has to spend the night on the ship I try to stay distracted and busy (pretty easy to stay busy with a newborn lol) so the day goes by faster. But I usually end up feeling stuck in the house and miss my husband. It’s also tough for me to fall asleep without him home. I just wish I had family on the same island as me to have a closer support system. Idk how other military moms do it but I am having a hard time especially being a SAHM.😪

I am a military spouse and I am no where near a base/ fort and mine is deployed for another 5 months... I understand you! Always looking for military friends!

I feel you! I don’t live on base either but hoping we move into a house on base soon once our lease is up so I can at least be surrounded by other moms that know what I am going through

If you ever need to talk to someone you can message me. My husband and I both were in the Navy and he was deployed when I had my little one so I can try and give you pointers to help or even just an ear to listen

My boyfriend is in the navy and he’s been deployed since I was 6 months pregnant and will be deployed until my daughter is 5 months old, I’m struggling with PPD and know exactly how you feel, feel free to message me!

I feel you.. they decided to put mine on CQ duty the weekend after her birth and the weekend after that. 😩 He didn’t get any time off after she was born either; he went straight back to work the next day.. I had to do it all alone because I have NO family near and neither does he. Our families are on the east coast, a 17 hour drive away. 🙄

Oh my gosh! He didn’t even get paternity leave?!

Random... But his command can get in a lot of trouble for not giving baby leave. If he reported it to someone higher they'd be screwed
