    I postponed having any children until I was almost done with my master's degree. I'm 32, I got pregnant in October 04, found out I'm having twins, and now on bed rest and had to drop one of my classes. I've lost all the work I already put into it and will have to pay for the class again. My graduation date is also postponed. I'm still able to work on my thesis but that is hard also, being so tired, sore and hardly able to move.

    My advice is to wait until school is done, just based on my experience. It took us over a year to conceive, true, but your pregnancy could also have alot of complications which prevent you from working let alone going to class.

    My husband and I always been advocates for getting oneself situated and straightened out first, career-wise and financially, THEN starting a family. I wouldn't advise starting a family when your life may already be in flux.

    Good luck in whatever you decide.
