Who would take care of your children? If you went off to boot camp for several weeks you certainly wouldn't be able to breastfeed after you came back... What if you have to have a c-section? Even with a vaginal delivery it's not a good idea to be doing quite that much physical activity so soon after childbirth. Your body needs time to rest, to heal... You need to bond with your newborn, to help with the transition for your older child from only child to big brother, so many things.
No way would I be able to leave my family so soon after such a big change. Your children need you. Give it time, would be my suggestion.
Who's gonna look after your little ones while your in basic training ? If you got somebody to look after them, then go for it.
I'm pretty sure you have to give up custody to join the army as a single parent.... even if.you didn't have to, that would mean leaving your little one for several months while you were at training. I understand its an.actractive option to gain some financial stability, but if you have any other options look at those first....its so important for babies to be with their mom!
I wouldnt youre in basic for atleast 6 weeks amd thats with no family anything just letters and phone calls when they allow it
Joining the army with kids could be the most difficult thing to do specially when your a woman . Think about it first good luck .
Yea. I know I need to give it time.... I'm just trying to think about our future... or I was thinking I should just go to job corp and by the time its close to my baby due date I'll be done with school
Idk how the army works but being prior military I would say wait until your body is ready. Also bring a single mom in the military isn't easy it's possible but like I said idk how the army works but I do know they are more lenient. My cousin is a captain in the army and deployed during 9/11 her little girl struggled in school sometimes and would cry non stop. Just weigh your options and dnt key the recruiters try to bs you because honestly that is their job. Good luck to you!
Thank y'all for telling me what yall think I needed this my barbie need me and I need them
I'm in the army now, I have been in for almost 3 years, I'm 17 weeks pregnant with my first baby boy! Joining was the best decision I've ever made but now that I'm pregnant, I've weighed my options and have decided to get out. The army has great benefits but you need to be physically and mentally prepared for it, your body needs to adjust as well, you're looking at being going for a minimum of 7 months, basic training being 10 weeks and your MOS school being as short as 6 weeks if you choose something easy, all depends on the MOS you choose. I know a lot of women that are still in now and have deployed and say it's the hardest thing they've ever done to be away from their kids that long, so think long and hard about it, write down the pros and cons and look them over before you sign or talk to anyone. And no matter what any recruiter says they all lie, trust me on that one sister!
Ok thank you so much I'm about to do that right now
Join the air force! Much more family oriented!!
