    You don't mention your age and that might be something to consider. My kids are 17, 12 and 5 and they have the best relationships. The little one adores his big brothers, looks up to them and the oldest 2 are very protective of the little one, especially the 17 y/o. I started in the medical field (CNA program, Surgical Technology program, now completing a BSN) when the oldest was 14 and I still have 2 more years to go. I'm 41 and always wanted another baby (really wanted that girl) but now I'm not sure it will happen. If you have over a year to even apply to a program and you're not over 35 do it now! if you are younger, I would wait to be done with school. Good luck!

    im in the same boat, debating. have a year left of pre reqs after next semester. i still have the a&p sequence to do fall 2013/spr 2014. i'm debating on having a baby in spr 2014 before hopefully starting a bsn in fall 2014. i have a 1 yr old now, and would ideally like to do the 2 yrs apart gap. i'm thinking about going ahead. as someone said, there's always something that'll come up w school, studying and work that will preclude doing it later, i think. good luck!
