So my husband is currently deployed and after five months his behavior suddenly changed. Ever since he has had phone access he has called daily (most of the times in the morning and at night) however he just went 16 days without calling me and I also hadn't received any letters ( I usually get at least 3/week). I was a nervous wreck but had assumed the phones were not working. When he finally did call he said that he had just been busy and resting on his days off duty...the phones were working fine. He said that on his days off that he had just been studying for his advancement and watching movies. I was calm about it but I did tell him how worried I had been and then he promised he would call back later that night...It has now been two days and I haven't heard anything. I am seven months pregnant and when we were on the phone he seemed very distracted and seemed very uninterested with anything I had to say about the baby ( he is usually full of questions about her movement, size and so on). He kept laughing and when I asked him what that was all about he just kept saying there was some girl in the background dancing with a broom??? He just seemed very distant.... very unlike him and although I don't know what it is wrong, I have a gut feeling there is something going on. I keep trying to tell myself that I am letting my hormones get me paranoid and try to give him the benefit of the doubt that maybe it is just something he feels he needs to go through alone (his father just died two months ago, although he was home on eleave for 10 days and seemed to be handling it well). I have always felt that I was one of the "lucky" ones that would never have this topic come up but I just feel something is wrong, and it seems strange that even after I told him how upset I was with him not calling that he would do it again after promising not to. I know when I was deployed I would see others cheat all the time and I always felt so sorry for their spouses and maybe I just have the idea in my mind from seeing that first hand, but I am really confused and to be honest a little embarrassed to get support from my friends or family.
