FHA allows you to qualify on 6 months of employment after returning to the workforce. Normally they want to verify 2yrs.
The most common reason this is used would be women who take maternity leave.

I'm no expert (sorry) but was shopping for a FHA mortgage this week. My lender informed me that the only reason you will have a hard time getting a FHA is if your score is below a 580. Looks like you are set. Congrats and keep us posted!
