I want to go to school but I'm pregnant.

I'm due around the Christmas holiday, but I was just wondering how possible it will be to return to school so quickly after the birth, my husband can watch the baby while I'm at school. What do you think? Is this even possible? I really want to go.

  • Yes it is possible...it is not like your are going to work...schools provide a flexible schedule so you will be able to nurse your baby.

    Congrats!

  • I'm attending school now but its different because I'm in high school. I'm due over summer break so luckily I don't have to miss school and still have a little time to be with my baby till school starts again. But there is this girl in my school who just recently gave birth and I notice she wasn't absent for as long as I thought she would be. I think she was only absent for like a week or two and that isn't that bad you can still catch up with school work and stuff. It all depends on what you're going to study and how your teachers are.

  • It's very possible. I did it in high school. You just have to WANT to do it.

  • My biggest advice is to talk to your teachers in advance. I was due right before spring break and had my baby right around the time I was due. I went back to take a midterm, enjoyed my spring break, and worked my butt off to get my classes done... but, I am now the proud owner of a college degree, and it was definitely worth it.
