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. 🙄

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

Make sure you find friends and look for groups in your area. People on bases are always willing to help and make room for new friends. I’m the military one so my poor hubby dealt with this ...but talk to women who have been were you are. It helps
