    13yr olds having babies.

    I lived in an upper middle class suburb, went to exceptional public schools, and there WERE kids in my middle school having sex, and yes, getting pregnant. This was in the late 70's, early 80's. I am not picking on you or anyone else that mentioned that this is a new problem. It's just not a new problem. That said, it wasn't until fairly recently that anyone was openly discussing incest, pedophilia, rape and the like. I, like SmilingBluEyes, homeschool my kids. It does give a certain margin of control in detering unwanted activites and actions, but as I am all too aware not even that is foolproof. As much as we want to protect our children, and as much as we teach them right from wrong, some kids just do their darndest to rebel, and sometimes in ways that are very self-destructive. I am not saying that the OP's daughter was doing this, just stating what I have found to be true as a mother. And, I certainly think that this situation with the OP's daughter needs further investigation as to what is really going on, if anything.

    Any other Mother/Daughter Students?

    That is so cool! My 15 year old daughter has decided she wants to be a nurse, as well as my 15 year old step-daughter. Unfortunately, I won't have the opportunity to take classes with them (and they are probably glad about that at their age!), but that would be so dear an experience! Good luck to you both! :)

    13yr olds having babies.

    bless you, cheerfuldoer, for saying what i was afraid to say. this little girl is a baby herself, with her whole life ahead of her. it would be an option i would consider if it happened to my daughter at that age, regardless of my general feeling about abortion. to the op, you do have support here, whatever the decision. take the advice given here, all sound and good advice. check out the real scoop behind the pregnancy, too, as was first suggested by smilingblueyes. and if this was a boy from school, there should definitely be some accountability.

    Heavy menstrual bleeding...

    Thanks, Dave. I am old enough to remember horror stories about certain IUD's, and though I realize we've come a long way in medicine it is hard for me not to feel like a guinea pig sometimes! Never hurts to ask. "ILuvNRSKarenRN"...I see you got some help with the all elusive title change!

    Oh, my, LilTiger, I am so sorry. As a mother of young teenage daughters you have my heartfelt empathy. Please keep us posted as to how you and your daughter are doing. I don't really know what else to add. I am not sure if it came down to brass tacks I wouldn't go ballistic on my daughter AND the boy if I were in the same position. Bless you for keeping a cool head.

    Heavy menstrual bleeding...

    COOL! Really, seriously this sounds awesome! Progesterone, huh? That's excellent. That might even help me with PMS! I will definitely discuss this at my appointment. Thank you so much for your post! :kiss

    Heavy menstrual bleeding...

    thanks for the suggestion, adria. i will discuss this with my doctor. i guess it would depend whether it would be the right thing for a woman my age who never plans on having any more children. hey, if it works, it would beat the heck out of a hysterectomy! dave: has dr. jess had any experience with using these with her patients? (this particular iud?)

    What Have I Done?!

    Thank you for that, MLOS. I am feeling better about this already. I am glad someone is able to point out the forest for me...sometimes it's so hard to see for the trees!

    What Have I Done?!

    Marilyn, Kewl! Another fellow home schooler! I am really enjoying A&P. I think micro will be cool, too. Yes, I have spoken to people at school about micro, but I don't know what to believe. I had people telling me how outrageously hard A&P was, too. Many of them were taking A&P I for the third time! That scared me, I was prepared to be blown away. It didn't happen like that, though. Everything has fallen into place, and I understand it. I am hoping the same thing is true for micro. I do feel for the people who struggle through some of these classes. I don't wish it on anyone, and I realize some things are harder for some and easier for others. I kind of have a tendency to freak myself out before I start a new subject I guess. Like, "Will this be the one class that does me in?" Just guess I need to calm down and remind myself to breathe! I do plan on home schooling through nursing school. I have been home schooling my daughter since first grade. She is a Freshman this year, and doing very well in her studies. I will PM you, feel free to PM me as well! Thanks for your support and encouragement. :kiss Lisa

    Thanks for that, bigmona. It makes me feel better. I know what you mean about having no life. But I guess as jemride pointed out, we just have to keep our eyes on the prize!

    What Have I Done?!

    Thanks for the encouragement you guys! A&P III and Micro will be the only classes I will be taking Spring quarter. Okay, quit laughing! Really, I have a full plate. I home school my kids, ages 15, 9 and 5. That in and of itself is a full time job. DH's two kids live with us as well. Add into it mountains of laundry, meals to prepare, taxi driving the kids to and from activites...well, I am just blessed my husband is also very supportive! I guess my concern lies in the fact I know how much I study for A&P, how much is involved in not only the lecture portion of class (physiology) but the lab portion as well (anatomy). The A&P at my school is like taking two classes with the lecture and the lab, with tests in each. There is, of course, lecture and lab in micro. Yeah, I realize how well I will have to prioritize, and that too has me a bit freaked out. Not that I can't prioritize, but when you add family into the mix, anything goes. It is going to be a very delicate balancing act for me. I HAVE taken a full course load, but those classes seemed to be a piece of cake compared to A&P alone. And will I get mixed up with the material since I will be taking two biology classes? This I don't know. It, too, is a variable in my fear. Oh, well. I know this only gets harder as I go along (or maybe I should say more challenging). If there is one thing I don't lack, it is tenacity. Let's hope it will carry me through, once again!

    What Have I Done?!

    I just registered for classes for Spring quarter. I only have a few pre-req's left and it may be 4-5 more quarters before my name comes up on the waiting list (possibly as soon as next fall or winter quarter). I have just registered for A&P III and Microbiology. I have heard the horror stories about how difficult Micro is. Of course I heard the same thing about A&P and so far I am getting an "A". Am I going to be able to handle both of these classes during the same quarter? I can't help but feel a bit intimidated...anyone else able to pull this off? Encouragement needed, PLEASE! :uhoh21:

    How do your guys calculate GRE score?

    Since we have strayed off topic here, I am going to PM you.
  16. Yep, I think so, too. It goes back to my theory of it being "sour grapes." I plan to be a NP someday and I intend to get good grades, period. I am an "A" student, and while I don't discuss my grades with anyone someone always figures it out anyhow. "Oh, that was you that ruined the curve?! I knew it." I DON'T think that getting C's makes anyone a better anything. It's fine, it's passing in most cases, but for me, I will make sure that I am doing the best I can and right now the best I can is an "A". At this point in my schooling, if I were to get a "C" on a test I would figure I didn't know the material very well. JMO.
