“My husband deployed when I was about 3 months pregnant. The entire deployment we joked how I’d go into labor at his homecoming, while we actually tried not to think about the possibility of him missing the birth of our second daughter.
My contractions started about an hour after he boarded his first plane to come home. He landed to a text saying, ‘I think you better hurry!’ and a screenshot of my contraction timer app.
I was determined to be there to pick him up, so I just prayed my heart out, and begged baby girl to wait for her Daddy. Luckily, she did just that!”
