Alone and sad :-(

So my husband is currently traveling for work and will be away for 2 weeks. He's traveled many times before and I've been fine, so I don't know if it's the hormones or what but I am just so sad and so bored. I don't feel like doing anything and I don't want to see or talk to anyone else cuz I feel like I'll just be annoyed by them... Any other ladies have Hubby's that travel while your pregnant and how do you cope?

Yeah, it does. What makes it harder for me is that with my last pregnancy, he'd at least txt me frequently to see if I was ok, ask me how I was feeling, how the baby was doing, etc.  Anyways, enough of my complaining.  Try writing in a journal or writing him letters and give them to him when he gets back.  That's what I used to do.  I also used to write a lot...like poetry and short stories and stuff.  I'd probably still do that if I had more time but I don't.

My husband is a truck driver and is only home 80 days a yr.  We have a 4yr old and it can get very hard doing it all alone and being 9 wks. I feel you.

GxoK that really s*cks :-( ... I'm not used to it. My hubby and I always have dinner and watch TV together at night (except on mondays when I work late, then we don't eat together) so during the day I'm okay, especially if I have work, but like today was my day off aand by 4 I was bored out of my mind. I end up going to bed at like 9 because I just see no reason to stay up but then I'm up at like 5 am. I guess all I can do is just count down the days.

My husband doesn't travel but he's gone literally all the time...even on his days off work. It used to not bother me all that much but with this pregnancy, my god, I feel alone and bored and depressed and all kinds of stuff. I really think it is the hormones bc I'm used to being alone (the other kids don't count u know and I don't mean that in a bad way). Anyways, I know what ur going through, chic.
