Congratulations on your little one!
I was working on my pre-reqs and was just about to apply to some nursing programs
when I found out I was pregnant.
I had to do my final term of A/P and had a ROUGH time. I had horrible "all day" sickness that first trimester and I had to leave most of the labs because I was so nauseous.
It didn't help that that final term of A/P was mostly about the reproductive system and pregnancy. One of the labs was dissecting [some animal, probably pig or cat] uterus that had a fetus in it. Totally walked out of that lab. Luckily, my lab instructor was VERY understanding.
There were 3 other pregnant girls in that class - they were all much further along than I was and they didn't seem to have any issues.
I was so frustrated though because I'd had A's in all my pre-reqs up to that point and ended up missing an A in that class by a couple points.
Once I got past the first trimester, I really think I would have been fine. I was no longer nauseous and had a lot more energy. I really think I would have been fine taking classes in my 3rd trimester. My baby ended up being 11 days overdue, so the finals wouldn't have been an issue either!
I took a year off to just stay home with my baby...then, didn't get into a program last year...but I was accepted to a program this year and I start in September. Now, I'm nervous about doing NS with a toddler!! :uhoh21: I know many people have done it before me though.
Good luck with whatever you decide!
