My dh is military so we have never been near family for any of our children's births. Just wondered if any of you are military or even just live a significant distance away! We are about 1400 miles away!

I'm not in the military, nor is my DH, but I am a former base brat. Both my parents were in the service.

My husband is in basic training right now and I had to tell him in a letter that we are having another baby

We're not in the army but we do live a 6 hour drive from both our families because of dh's work - but that is nothing compared to 1400 miles. We are very fortunate that dh's family take the long drive around 6 times a year to visit.

We live in North Dakota right now. We started out here, moved to Portugal, moved to Delaware, and back here in North Dakota. I am pretty used to it, and my parents come up every now and then but not often. Everyone expects us to fork out the money to come home! For a family of five is $2000 to fly
