I had my last son 2 1/2 months before graduation. At my school, we had lab as well as clinical, and if we attended all the labs, we could "bank" a clinical day off on top of the two clinical "absences" we were allowed. (We had clinical on Tues and Thurs.) Sooo...I went to clinical on Thurs, went into labor in the wee hours of Saturday, delivered later that morning. I took my "banked" time, which would have put me back to school 1 1/2 weeks after delivery, but as luck would have it, my time ran right into Spring Break. (Thank Goodness!) I got an extra week off.
I was back to school, with son in tow, 13 days after delivery to take a mid-term!
I used to take him with me to lectures, and left him with a neighbor on clinical days. My classmates would often take turns holding him so I could take notes, or would copy theirs for me if I had to leave the room. Sometimes one of them would leave with him, instead! My classmates and my instructors were very supportive, which made a rough time a lot easier. Heck, my son is even in our class photo! Everyone figured that he graduated too.
Again, it was rough...I had a few late and make-up assignments, and I wasn't always up on the reading, but it is possible. As one of my instructors said, "What better time to have a baby but when you're surrounded by a bunch of nurses!" LOL! It's true!
