Common Questions and Answers about Getting pregnant in college
Anyone else pregnantincollege? Im a second semester sophmore 4w+6d so ill be about 6 months pregnant taking finals in may. Baby is due is september so I will likely take the semeater or year off. Anyone else in a similar situation?
Im almost 10weeks pregnant with my second and incollege. I was supposed to graduate with my bachelors in may 2014 but Im taking next spring off so i won't be graduating till Dec 2014. My husband and I have been trying since Dec 2009 to get pregnant. We thought it would never happen again. It did and Im beyond excited but i was concerned about school. Really concerned actually. Im due Dec 19th andi had my son at 35weeks. Im a little worried about not making it full term this time either.
Omg, is it me or is being pregnant in college hard af? I'm 34 weeks and I be so tired and lazy, I sometimes don't feel like going to class. 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!
The best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14, and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28-day cycle. After intercourse, do not wash immediately and keep a pillow under your butt so that semen doesn't come out of your body.
I honestly think that I want a baby so bad that I am causing myself some how having a hard time getting that way again. Its not like my sex life isn't good. Me and Tom have a great sex life. Better then most couples. I just feel like i am in a rush or on a timer. I am almost 30 and I thought I would already had my baby by now and be this happy go lucky family. I guess I am living in a fairy tale book some place. I just never wanted something so much or so bad before and I can't get it.
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.
Any of you mommas still in college? I'm heading towards a degree in elementary education! I'm a little over 9 weeks pregnant with mine and my husbands first baby! What are you guys in school for? And how much longer do you have?
How did this happen! lol

had to do urine test b4 i could get it and...
found out i was prego...
had no idea
confused.. kinda sad.. im only 20 and
have been planning to move away for
college in a few months..
I love and adore my son and I feel like he is such a wonderful blessing and I can't imagine my life with out him. He is the light of my life. I would love to have a little girl...I know that is not a given, its up to God...but I would love for James to have a sibling...whether brother or sister. But I tried going off the medicine last month and had some severe symptoms. I got scared, freaked out and went right back on the meds without even trying for a baby.
I spent my whole summer and third semester pregnantincollege, 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?
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?
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.
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 tips....talk 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.. ..
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??
Yeah, being incollege 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.
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.
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.
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.
i find out today that my financial aid app went through and now all i hav to do is pick out my classes. im sooo excited, i cant wait. not that i will b taken classes at the college but on the net. im so lookin forward to doin something just for me. i feel like a little kid in a candy store, lol. joe and kristie have been so supportive through all of this and im so thankful to hav them in my life.
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?
