â€‹As an update, since I'm sure other students will search this topic eventually -
Shortly after posting here I got way sick with hyperemesis gravidarum (look it up, nurses! It's so misunderstood!) and lost 30 pounds and got a Zofran pump (like an insulin pump into my leg). I still managed to start my second semester of school in August after a few weeks on the pump to help! I woke up once a week at 2:30am to travel 2 hours to my clinical site, worked a 10 hour clinical, then drove home, in addition to going to class which I didn't travel for. I had my Zofran pump until half way through the semester until I was 22 weeks along. I just wore it under my scrubs and all was well. Other than that, no complications with my pregnancy and I felt fantastic.
I went into labor naturally the middle of my third semester (critical care) in February and had a beautiful 6lb 9oz girl at 38 weeks after 35 hours of unmedicated labor. I took a week off of school, and then fortunately we had a huge snow storm and I got another week off of school. I had my cardiac exam the day I came back and squeaked by with an A when the average was a low B. :) I healed quickly and completed the rest of the semester no problem, and was able to pump in a pumping specific room at school and my hospital. Aside from one clinical instructor that did not understand my need (he was a male) and having to pump in an unlocked room in a drug and alcohol recovery center, all went well! She is now 16 months old and still nursing strong, so being away from her didn't have too much of an effect. Cosleeping and babywearing were my lifesaver!
To the mamas thinking about getting pregnant in nursing school - it IS doable, but only in the right circumstances. My husband stayed home with our daughter the days I was in school, but there is no way I would have put her in daycare or had someone else watch her. I would not have been focused enough in school because I would have been too worried. My clinical and lecture instructors were great and gave me ample time to pump - another deal breaker for me. No pumping would mean no school for me. I did not get leniency though on anything, not that I expected that. I turned my assignment in on time (they did open up some quizzes so I could take them early before I went into labor) and I did make up work for the clinical I missed. I luckily didn't have any complications except in the beginning over summer, but one of my classmates did have to drop out of school because she had complications with her pregnancy. It IS a reality to consider - if you had to drop out of school, would you be devastated? If so, don't get pregnant. There's no way to know what will happen!
ETA - I have now graduated, passed the NCLEX (75 questions in 40 minutes, huzzah!) and am starting a new grad program next week.
