This thread is really interesting to me. I will be starting a three-year nursing program in the fall, and my drive to have a baby and be a mother is HUGE. My partner and I are planning children young, and I also have a similar health problem (though mine doesn't seem to be as serious as yours is--you have my sincere sympathy). I'm currently on Depo Provera to keep the symptoms at bay, but it isn't recommended for extended periods of time (my ob/gyn told me 2 years max, especially since I already have weak bones, and I'm already approaching a year...). I'm also considering becoming pregnant/having a baby sometime during nursing school. I think that, in your situation, since you are used to dealing with pain and sickness in nursing school, even if you had a pregnancy that wasn't textbook "easy," you might be more able to function in school with the sickness. Of course, some pregnancy complications can be much more serious, but in your case I would think it would make sense to go ahead and try. Good luck with whatever you choose to do, and please keep us (me!) posted with how things work out for you.
