I'll give you my story.
I found out I was pregnant last November. I was just about to take the TEAS test for my local community college but decided not to because I knew it would be too difficult.
It turned out to be a good decision because I have been to the ER many many times, I was admitted a handful of times & put on bed rest the last month. There would've been no way for me to handle being pregnant & nursing school.
I knew my pregnancy wouldn't be a breeze but I didn't think it would be THIS complicated. Even if you already had a baby & it went smoothly, every pregnancy is different. If you can, just wait.
I don't recommend it, but if you do decide to do it, aim for a summer delivery, that way (assuming everything goes well) you can take your time bonding with the baby, establishing breastfeeding, and learning how to be a mommy. It's not easy though, there are a lot of sleep interruptions in the first year, (and for some, much longer than that) and nursing school schedule is already hectic enough.
I have one classmate that took a quarter off (our school admits every quarter except summer) and another who is due in December '14; she THINKS she is going to take no time off, and I hope she can make it work, but wow, I don't envy her situation.
Yes I know there's a possibility of a troubled pregnancy. My thought on that is I am a healthy person with absolutely no health issues. That's not to say it's impossible to have trouble though. Grrrr it IS something to think about though. Thanks!
When do you start clinical?
Wow I wish mine was that short. I'd just knock it out then TTC. 2-3 years is so long. I wanted babies by now so the thought of waiting another few years is killing me. I also know that even with a nanny my Grandmother would be more than willing to move down from NY to GA to help me if I needed it. She helped raise me and she is awesome! All I'm praying for is a healthy stress free pregnancy.
OMG My classmates and I are taking Patho AND Pharm together!! NOOOOOOO we are dying. It's way too much work plus it's out of order! Patho first then Pharm. You'll make life so much easier that way!!!!
That's the one thing I'm concerned about. Not having a breezy pregnancy. Oh boy!!
Hello my fellow nursing students!
My fiance and I want to have a baby. Our original plan was to wait until I'm out of school but I grad 12/2016. Next month I'll be 30 and he'll be 40. The way I see it is if we wait it'll be another 3 years. Two years to finish school and at least 1 more year to start working because I don't want to go into a new job pregnant. I rather start working with a baby between 1-2 years old.
We've discussed it and he will be willing to get me a nanny and carry the both of us financially so I won't have to work but a few hours a week so that I could be home with the baby and study. Is this crazy?
We are gonna TTC between late July thru October so that I'd end up with a summer break due date. If my due date is mid May I'd be able to spend at least 2.5 months with the baby before I'd have to go back to class in August. How hard is it to be pregnant while in nursing school? I figure it will be a lot harder to be pregnant when I'm an actual RN. Plus I won't want to rush back to work afterwards. This is probably crazy but we both have baby fever LOL. My BSN is calling me but so is motherhood. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!
Hey everyone! If you need the link to the group, let me know.
I can't find it!!! I was accepted too!!!!!! I've been dying to find a thread so I can meet you all!!! <3
Suicide is not the answer. PLEASE don't do it!!! Stand up to your family. This is your life. Also if I were you I would finish school and find an area of nursing that you would like. There are sooooo many options with nursing. You could be one of the nurses that answers the phone on a nurse hotline. You don't have to set foot in a hospital. There's so many positions to choose from.
Did you get in too?! Trying to find out who my classmates will be. How exciting!!!! How did you feel when you opened the letter and read the "congrats"? I cried like a baby!!!! I feel like I've won the lotto.
OMG!! I got in!! Who else? I'm so excited!!! I haven't completely worked the numbers out in my head as far as tuition goes....has anyone else?
