Micro&physio during the same time frame I’m to give birth

by JA22 JA22 (New) New Student

Hey all! I am due to deliver my son October 27th (mid fall 22 semester).
Originally I had planned to be applying for nursing school Spring of 23. I have two classes left before I can apply- micro and physio. 

Currently I am signed up for physio this fall as I know I can handle one class with a newborn. But my pondering is if I should tack on micro with it, or take micro the following Spring semester.

I’m really bummed about having to wait until fall of 23 to apply (which is what I’ll have to do if I only take physio during the fall of 22), but am also hesitant about taking on 8 units of heavy classes when I would be giving birth mid semester. 

I am not working currently and have a good support system to help with the baby. But I have a *feeling* micro and physio amidst birth and newborn life may overwhelm me- or simply not be possible. Again, I’m just having a hard time adjusting to the idea of being set back a whole semester so I’d like to hear of some first hand, personal experience with the classes before I make a decision. 

Thanks in advance!

I personally would wait until the baby is one year old.
