Expecting Our First And He's On The Road
(Vero Beach, FL)
Now, I understand that this is for truck driver's wives, but I am a truck driver's fiance. We are definitely getting married, and I am absolutely understanding with my fiance's recent career change.
We discussed it at length before he went to get his CDL and decided that him becoming a truck driver wasn't so we could have time apart, but so he could provide for our newly growing family.
Also, he and I both feel comfortable enough in our relationship for him to be gone for long periods of time and I can be home with our animals and soon our son.
We have a very close relationship and we are best friends! We are expecting our first child and I am probably going to deliver while he is on the road. I am very sad that my fiance probably won't be here for our son's birth because if there is anyone else who I would want by my side while delivering, it is definitely him.
I am sure that many of you can understand how emotional you are when you are pregnant and it is very tough right now with him being gone and I am 8 months pregnant. My mother just had major surgery done because of a procedure that went wrong and it is even difficult for me to help her considering I am supposed to be on bed rest.
My parents are an hour away and my mother is not capable of driving up here nor is my father capable of leaving her. My fiance's mother has been wonderful to me, but she is still an hour and a half away and the people I used to be friends with are still into going out to bars is the only way to have fun life style. I am writing in hopes that I will be able to reach out to some of you women out there and I will be able to have others to talk to and you will be able to coach me through this difficult time for me.
Again, I am not yet a wife of a truck driver, but a soon to be wife, so I understand if I am not excepted yet. Thank you very much for your time.
