I'm trying to remain focused though but I have to admit this is pretty hard and I know its going to get even harder when my baby girl arrives. Sheesh!

Avatar f tn I'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with my second. I've been to college before but I so desperatly want to go back. I know it will be hard with a 4 yr old and a new born but I feel like I owe it to them and myself. I'm going tomorrow to sign up, I'll be able to take a 5 week leave after the baby is born. I just need some words of encouragement and someone to tell me it is possible for me to reach the goal. I'm going for Medical Assistant.
Avatar f tn I spent my whole summer and third semester pregnant in college, how not fun right. But as the days wind down i get more and more nervous, im afraid its gonna hurt, what are your labor plans, epidural, natural or cesarean?
11142112 tn?1415649438 I'm 17 & pregnant & in college to bebecome a neonatal nurse. Its hard to go to college pregnant! Is anyone else going to college & also pregnant? What do you plan to become?
Avatar f tn Yeah, being in college while pregnant is rough. I would still enroll in the class that you need for spring semester, and then come on very good terms with your professor. If you just talk to some of them and explain your situation, most likely they'll let you take the exams early.
Avatar f tn I'm a full time student and a single parent to a 5yr old n I'm 24weeks.. Baby is due march 9th two weeks before finals. I feel unbelievably overwhelmed n stressed out and just plain exhausted.. You're not alone there are lots of women who are pregnant and in college.. It's not a ton of fun, but really worth doing it.. I try n keep my mind on the big picture, and when I feel like giving up I think of my daughter and little one on the way.
Avatar f tn Lol... I went back in January. A completely different experience than before. Actually its one of the easier online schools. I have friends who do community college online and the requirements are much tougher and time consuming. Also how old are you?
Avatar f tn I'm 21and first will be here any day and yes I'm going to college... Being pregnant in college isn't so bad... Use the time you would have spent on partying to study and your amazing grades week get you a scholarship... Find other mommy friends on your campus to give you to professors about your situation and they may cut you some slack on attendance add long as you are maintaining your grades.... Get a pump.. ..
5615074 tn?1378316840 m the same as you, if I have the baby on the day class is that counts as the one class I miss and the hospital here keeps you in for 3-5 days so I will be just getting home and have to do school! Becoming a nurse is much harder than I thought.
Avatar f tn Im 19 years old and im 6 months pregnant i have my baby in feb. And i really wanna go to school to be a dentist, ive decided to apply to a university thats like 15 min away from my house i wanna stay on campus so i can also experience college but i dont wanna miss my baby to much what should i do??
Avatar f tn I'm 19 and I was a Sophomore at Fisk University before I found I was pregnant. I finished my Fall semester, but I couldn't go back because I got pregnant during winter break(go figure). My folks said that they would watch the baby for me when I return to school next Jan.......but I feel really bad because my parents are basically done raising kids. My brother will be 18 this year, and I don't wana leave my child behind. I feel like I'll be a bad mom being away from the baby.
Avatar f tn Oh boy, the fall semester is starting soon and I'll be in my 2nd trimester the entire time. Any other pregnant ladies in college? How the hell do I function? I'm taking relatively easy classes since I found out I was pregnant right around the time I had to register for classes. So I'm taking math, history, painting, and ukulele. I'm kind of worried about the painting since I don't know if the fumes are going to be safe.
Avatar f tn t pertain to pregnancy specifically, but I had to take a 1 year leave from USC in August because I found out I was pregnant. I was wondering if anyone knew if technical/community colleges had accelerated courses available, because my baby will make it's arrival probably right before or during exam week. Has anyone ever taken an accelerated course at a community/tech school?
Avatar f tn Do u ladies think it would b a bad idea if I still went to college? Just start later in the year? Or should I wait a few years?
2515342 tn?1347080637 I still have 2 more years left in college and I am going to be pregnant through the fall .. I am debating whether I should continue going to class or switch to online classes ( because my college offers an online program) ... Any body else have the same situation or any suggestions?
Avatar f tn I was in college when I found out I was pregnant. I was goin for Radiology Tech & was just abt to start clinicals. They didn't offer maternity leave soo when I had my baby I'd have 2wks off. I felt like that was too short & I was going to have to travel to diff cities for clinicals that weren't near where I lived soo I decided to leave before baby and go back after she's here.
Avatar f tn Not at all I'm a senior in college I am supposed to be graduated in July, I consider this pregnancy a slight speed bump in my education, to be honest it was a surprise and I was pretty upset at first But I'm just overjoyed now and cannot wait for my little princess to come I am 39 weeks prego and still in school and I'm actually working on an essay at the moment lol Everything will work out :)
4444857 tn?1383325813 I graduated December of 2011 but I had my daughter in college. I was pregnant going in, had her my second semester. I now have my degree in Biology Secondary Education, and I teach high school science. It's tough, but worth it.
Avatar f tn Are salads, vegetables and fruit all you're eating? What about lean protein, dairy, healthy fats? You aren't getting nearly enough nutrients that your body needs. You could actually use some protein and healthy fats more than you need the fruit, which has a lot of sugar in it, even if is natural. Yogurt is chock full of, both protein and healthy fats, as are eggs, lean meats, fish, avocados, peanut butter, etc. If you've lost 5 lbs in a week, that's too much...
Avatar f tn I'm 15 days away from having my baby, but I'm getting so worried since I'm still in college. Anyone else in school and about to have their baby? Suggestions for staying caught up while I'm out of class?
