New Facebook status:

Sarah just calculated that her husband has been deployed for 99 days.  It's a good number for bottles of beer on the wall, but not so good for number of days being apart...

My mind is also apparently starting to play tricks on me.

I am ready to be done now, pls k thx.

Also, he is being a total John Adams and hasn't sent me one single letter.  "But we don't have outgoing mail out here" blah blah blah, like I believe that.

I'm tired of being in stores and seeing something I could give him for Christmas, and then putting it back because I realize that he won't be here for Christmas...

I'm tired of seeing myself in the mirror at night before bed and noticing how absolutely remarkable and amazing I look with my big, bare belly, and knowing he will never get to see it.  I am not trying to be lewd, but I think the hardest thing about the pregnancy so far is that my husband doesn't get to see what I look like with no clothes on.  The changes are pretty phenomenal, and I don't have anyone to share it with.

I just miss him.

I know, I know, "gold to aery thinness beat" and all, like I always say.  But I'm feeling dull and sublunary today.

1 I do that, too--the bouncing between aery thinness and dull sublunarity. I'm sorry you're in the latter place.

Sarah, I am sorry you are going thru this alone, especially after all you both went thru to get "here". My idea/suggestion won't "take the place" of your husband being there w/you, but wondering if you can take weekly/monthly pictures of the amazing changes, then put them in a book (like snapfish advertises - you could do a nice leather bound or something) and the you can give to your husband when he returns? Your comment about body changing doesnt sound lewd, but maybe you could photograph it and create a book for him to enjoy and recollect/reflect.

Just an idea...

3 Maybe you might like to splurge for the gorgeous belly shots by a professional photographer? 

I was an awful pregnant lady - I looked like an elephant.  I always envied people who looked cute enough to get those gorgeous pregnant belly shots.  You could totally pull that off.

Also, I was never pregnant when they were manufacturing cute preggers clothes.  Somehow, whenever I was knocked up it was all about plaid or horizontal stripes, or else stuff that Mrs. Roper would have worn on Three's Company.

5 You're entitled to a moment sweetie. Then, shake it off and go get those pregnancy pictures taken. You'll love it and he'll get to see how you look.

6 I 4th the photo book idea. You could also get a mold made. For soem reason that is very popular here in Philly.

Lurker here, just throwing my 2 cents.

Aye on the pregger pictures!

And ya know what?  If you see something your Husband might want, or need?  Buy that sucker up!  Who says Christmas has to be in December.  You can have Christmas when he is home, safe and sound!

8 I like the idea of the preggers pics too.    And, the buying of the Christmas gifts.  Why not? 

And, if anyone were to have to come to my house at any point this week, I'd be in TROUBLE.  Between traveling, M2 being sick, me being sick and never being home in the evenings, this place is running off the rails!

I hope you hear from him soon!
