      be patient with her, in the first three months, the brain of the baby is formed including vital organs, let her eat, Omega3 rich foods, drink milk and protein rich foods, yay, I know because I had five pregnancies and they are all healthy,,,

      Get used to it kid, this is only the begining.  Wait until you haven't slept for days because the baby cries every two hours at night and she keeps yelling at you because she can't sleep because you're not getting him/her back to sleep fast enough

        Im a grunt I'm used to not sleeping but yea I can handle it. When she has her moments I just take it. The horrible part is three months after the baby is born I deploy again.

          The baby will be your inspiration...take care of your baby after he/she will be born, and while you are not yet deployed

          That sucks!  I'm a vampire when it comes to sleeping, and only get maybe 2 hours a night, but ater my twins were born things were a bit rough for awhile. Just do what it takes to keep her happy, you won't regret it later.  Well I wish you and your family the best.  You have all of my respect for protecting our country and our freedom!

      Congratulations to you and your wife on your pending new addition.  Take care of yourself when you get overseas.. You will surely miss them and they will miss you tremendiously. 

      Thanks for your service.

    The first 3 months of pregnancy is very critical.  You can really notice some change in moods, eating habits, acting timid, and always feeling sleepy.  Just be more patient to your wife.  Do not also forget to let her drink prenatal vitamins with folic acid. This is important for the development of the baby's brain. You can buy this over-the-counter.  You can ask the pharmacist. Take good care of her.

    Congratulations too!

    CM congratulations on the baby! So awesome an experience.

    Just please her for now, it'll be better in the end.

    I'm a Marine's Mom and I worry over him like crazy sometimes. He's in Afghanistan helping to make life better there. Is that where you will go?

    I'll pray for you over there and for your family here, and I'm so sorry you have to deploy when your child is so young. Make as big an imprint on the baby as you can before you leave, and the bond is strong. Good luck and don't forget to call your mom!
