i found out i was pregnant after my fiancé got locked up and i wanted nothing more then for him to be with me for my pregnancy but there was no way of getting him out, he ended up missing the labor and delivery too, my biggest fear was me going into labor and having the baby and him not knowing anything .. and that is exactly what happened, i went into labor at night and had the baby and the next morning he calls and i'm like "your a daddy", needless to say he didn't want to believe me until he heard the cries.

compared to me, i would say you are lucky that he will be able to come home while the baby is still young and gets to be there for all of the "firsts" .. my fiancé has yet to even meet our baby and still has a few months before he will

it was difficult at first, trying to accept everything, my fiancé getting locked up, finding out i was pregnant, and i wouldn't have him there for anything, but we found ways of making it special still, i would send him pictures of my growing belly, ultrasounds, order him pregnancy books and we spent many phone calls and letters talking about baby names and how we would do the nursery.

you just got to make the best of it still, even though it wasn't how i ever imagined my pregnancy going i still wanted it to be special and a happy time for everyone and my fiancé still felt like he was apart of everything even with the distance.

He was sentenced when I was 6 months, and I had the baby last month. Hopefully he will come home when little one is 6-9 months old. It was and is hard. It is my first child; caring for a newborn, and figuring out how to financially maintain our life is a huge challenge.

My only advice is to keep positive. It's not the easiest thing, but many people have been through far worse. Take care of yourself first! Take photos, create memory books. Write lots of letters- this is a great way to document all that happens.

My boyfriend just got arrested on monday, I have a really good feeling hes going to be away for a long time. I'm 7 months pregnant with my first child, I'm 23. We just moved over an hour away from anyone I know. All I want is for him to be out for our daughters birth and not miss her growing up. I grew up without a father and it is the absolute last thing I wanted for my daughter. The shittiest part is I'm so so sure he didnt even do anything wrong, he got set up. I still havnt heard from him but his father and I are doing everything to at least try to get him out until court. But one condition of his bail might be that him and I will not be able to communicate unless its about our baby. I just want my boyfriend home. I feel all your pain ladies, its so so hard and its only been two days for me. All we can do is stay strong and keep our heads up right?

The test was positive a few days before he was arrested over a blue warrant in another state. Now i'm going to go through my first baby all by myself, and him so far away. I do have the support of my family, and friends. Its just not the same without my husband. And i have the responsibility of our 7yr old boy(I'm the only mom he will ever know.) I am glad to know that you women have the strength, and are hanging in there until our men come home.

First pregnancy. Just confirmed it with a home pregnancy test a few days ago. But I've been bleeding for two and a half weeks. Extremely heavily at first. Doctor's appointment isn't until next month. So who knows what has caused that. My fiance was sentenced in August. Unless the appeal goes as planned, he won't ever see me and the baby. Saddest part but it's reality.

Hats of to all you mamas and soon to be mamas. I'm single mom and no matter where the father is being a single mom is a tough job. Lots of prayers and hugs to you all.

I was 30 weeks when my husband was taken by probation. He was sentenced to 30 months flat time when our daughter was 2 weeks old. She's almost 2 & we are almost done! Good luck to all of you!
