I know I've been on here before, but have not had internet in many months, so let me reintroduce myself. I am Jennifer(20) married to Cory(24) since August 4, 2007...I am having surgery in April for endometriosis to help me become fertile, and immediately after my surgery we will be TTC our first child...my story may be a little different though from everyone else's since I am also an Army Wife and I will going through the end of my pregnancy, birth, and first 8 months or so of the baby's life without my dh since he will be deploying for the 2nd time this October to Afghanistan...so I'll be going it alone and will probably be on here a lot to make friends and for support since my situation will be bittersweet.....hope to get to know everyone! -Jen

Hi Jen!

Welcome (back) to the board. Good luck with the surgery and with TTC. I hope everything goes perfectly and you get your BFP right away! You've definitely come to the right place for support and friendship - this board is amazing in that way. And although I've never been in your exact situation, I know all about the unique stress that comes from having a loved one deployed. My family is VERY active in the military and has been for many generations. My BIL has done two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, and now he's headed to Northern Africa, and my dad was in the army my entire childhood and served in the first gulf war. My brother and SIL are also in the service, but they are stationed in a safer area (Italy). I know it can be both stressful and isolating, so don't hesitate to come here to vent!
