I think you should talk to the pastor. Even though you haven't been going there long they could help you out some. He might be able to put you in touch with some other women just for the company when your dh is gone. Your going to need some help since your on bedrest!!!!! This could be a nice way to meet some of the people from the church. I think they would be happy to get to know you.

I am not sure what branch of the military your DH is in but can't you contact the Navy relife or something similiar to that on the base for financial support? It would be a loan but it is intrest free.

Oh my gosh I am so sorry to hear you dont have more help since you are on bedrest. I know I am stressing over Steven going to Iraq in Jan so not too long I will feel the same way you do! Thank God I have older girls who can help out. I hope you find someone to help while you are in bed!

Can you get any help from fellow service wives?

I don't know much about it but my friend had AFLAC and it helped her when she was on bedrest.

We tried that... but there has to be a certain amount of time between them and we took out one when he first came home from Iraq last November to help with some legal affairs and to help us get on our feet with a home and such. As for the support from other military spouses, we haven't met many, but the base we are at is like a "Retirement" base. THey don't ever really deploy unless it is something like this.

Now... to help with the saddness of it all I want to tell you all some good things.
#1 he is NOT going into a "Combat zone" he is going to a military base in Kuwait (still terrified but not as bad) I didn't understand this until he explained it to me..again.

#2 We have had him on the "Cabbage Diet" for the past 3.5 days (it last 7) because he has to measure a certain percent to be able to reenlist. Well between that and me wrapping his waist in ceranwrap (yeah, he did it) for 2 days I believe he has lost enough!! This means within a month they will pay him $15,000 tax free (the reenlisting will come while in Kuwait, meaning it won't be taxed). This will free us from our financial burden we are in right now.
PLEASE pray that he "passes the tape" tomorrow so that he can do this. I am already SO proud of him.

P.S. for those of you who may remember about the "picky dh eater post" well that is my dh.. thi sman NEVER eats veggies unless it's corn, lettuce, or tomatoes. So it was a big step for him to eat nothing but celery, cabbage, onions, carrots and stuff.

I'm so sorry this has hit you at a time like this. You are not being selfish at all. It's tough being on bedrest, and you really do need a support system. Can he find out why his paycheck is much smaller than expected? Can you call the people you owe and work something out? You don't need this stress right now. Perhaps he can help with this. I'm glad that at least his extension isn't for a long time. It's got to get better, hon. Try to keep yourself busy, but do get some sleep.

Well, the days everything is due is WITH the extension. They could careless that I am on bedrest and he is going over there. I understand though, I can't imagine how many people would take advantage of them if they did do something. We sre praying and I am selling stuff on ebay, which I had planned to do anyway. Something will happen, I have faith. Thank you all for being here. If I could I would send everyone chocolate

You should tell somebody in your Sunday School class, the pastor, somebody in the church! That's what church is there for!!! To help others in need, and you are in need right now! You can pay it back later when things get back to normal. You don't need to be worrying about things. Take it east and like ChristyK said DON'T WATCH THE 24 HOUR NEWS CHANNELS!!!! You have enough on your plate. LET YOUR CHURCH HELP!!!! You might have to be somebody's lifeline someday, and that somebody might be your lifeline NOW!!! It will all work out. God takes care of us even when we don't know what to do! God is good, all the time!!!! Praying for you and your family!:D

Is there any way at all your insurance will pay for a PCA (personal care attendant) to help you out while dh is gone and you're on bedrest? Check with your doctor to see what they think, but I would have to believe there would be some sort of resources available. Also, see about getting in touch with a local mom's group. Many times they will help out people on bedrest, and it's nice because then you can make new friends. Praying everything goes really well for you! **HUGS**
