    Congratulations!! How exciting. I am just 2 weeks into my program, and we have a classmate that is due in October. She is giving us all baby fever, much to our instuctor's dismay!! I had a baby in April 2004, and I only missed 2 days of class. Its tough, but it can be done. I hope you have a good support system, I know that daycares won't take babies younger than 6 weeks, that does cause a problem for some. Just start making your plans now, and I know w/ determination you will get through it. Good luck!

    Congrats! I'm due March 30 myself (graduation is May 13) - it'll be hectic, but worth it! FYI - in my situation, I'm not going to be able to take much time off school at all, so we're already planning to save, save, and save some more - then my husband will take off 6 weeks or so - so that I can get back to school ASAP - I've already told my OB that bedrest isn't an option... I need to graduate! Good luck with your pregnancy!

    Quote from jov
    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?
    This is my second baby. I know that I can do it. I bounced back very quickly with my first and I have a great support system within my family that can most definately help me out until I finish the 2nd semester.

    Congrats! I had my fourth baby 6 weeks before the start of my 1st semester. It was very hard, but I am still here, reading to begin my 3rd semester. Good luck!
