Hello everyone! My name is Kimberly. I am 22 years old and a PROUD Army Wife and Mommy! We have a handsome son together that is 1 1/2 and we are expecting our second August 12th and it's a GIRL!
Hubby missed the birth of our son because he was over in Iraq. He left for Iraq when I was 4 months pregnant, so he missed almost my whole pregnancy. He actually made his leave planned around my due date which was Dec. 21st, but Brandon decided to come 6 weeks early on November 12th, so Hubby couldn't be there. He did get to hear our son's first cry because he called when I was delivering, which I was so happy about. Brandon, our son, had to be in NICU for 2 weeks due to prematurity and got to come home right after Thanksgiving. A month after Brandon was born, Hubby got to come home on leave, and he met our son for the first time in the airport. He got to stay for 2 weeks, which was around Christmas time, so he got to be home for Christmas, but then had to head back on New Years. He finally came home in June '08, when our son was 7 months old.
This pregnancy Hubby is here the whole pregnancy and will be home for the birth. We found out when I was like 4 months pregnant that Hubby has to go back overseas to Iraq. He will be leaving when our son is 2 and our baby girl is about 3 months.
I am hoping and praying that I go full term in this pregnancy since our son came 6 weeks early. I am on mild bed rest because I was already having pains at about 22 weeks and contractions.
We are having a HARD time picking out a name for our girl. So if you have any suggestions, please throw them at me lol. I like unique, but not too unique names, but I also like popular names.
