Exciting, surprising news!

  1. i just found out yesterday that's i'm pregnant! we're shocked, because we weren't trying (actually, trying to prevent it). but now, we're thrilled. it's scary, because i just started nursing school, and am due about 2 weeks before the end of my second semester (may 4). so, anyway, i just wanted to share my good news with you all!

    Congratulations!

    I am halfway through a surprise pregnancy myself! We were planning on starting a family next year (had just gotten married, live in a tiny 2 bedroom condo, haven't save much money, hubby still in school) but I suppose things happen for a reason. I had even taken 5 days worth of negative ovulation tests the month we conceived! But it was a nice surprise all the same. You take care of yourself!

    congratulations!

    ya know, nursing school is great but babies are better! lol! take care of yourself--get good prenatal care and don't run yourself down--and enjoy your pregnancy!

    i have a classmate who had a baby 10 days before school started this semester. she is hanging in there...make sure you have some good support!

    so what are your ideas about second semester, leave of absence, and all?

    Congratulations & blessings to your family!

    Make sure you nail down the fine details NOW about your school's attendance requirements, particularly w/regard to clinical time you'll miss. Also work with your significant other to think about how to best manage "life" if required bedrest or some other complication causes you to delay your progression in school.

    I'm definately going to finish 2nd semester. We're going to try to work out something with my hubby's work so while I'm in class and clinical, he can be home with the kids. Then, a nice summer off with my babies.

    and just how do you think that is going to happen if you have your baby two weeks before your *due* date, which is 4 weeks before the semester ends? Or is this your first baby?
