    It is pretty rare, but not entirely unheard of. I have done it once in my long onc career.

    I work oncology. We had a patient a few years back who was diagnosed with AML at 14 weeks. She couldn't terminate because her platelets were too low. We all expected her to miscarry at some point. She didn't. She had 4 rounds of chemo and had a c/s at 36 weeks. Mom and baby did fine, and are both fine today.

    I know they have been admitted on our med-surg floor on rare occasions, where chemo-certified RN's administer their chemo therapy. We do "run a strip" if need be, qshift for them. They are not admitted to our floor for chemo.
