  • I'm 33 weeks and I'm due a quarter of a way into the fall semester. I plan on breast feeding and dont have anyone to take him/her so that first semester I am taking off, after that I'm going full time again including summer so I can hurry up and graduate!! I really just started though so I still have 4 years. I started late because I was in the military and just got out and had taken some time off before I joined.

  • I was in high school. It was ok but I could here eople talking about me... Healthwise id get out of breath from class to class. Dr made me leave at 6 months which was the end of the year anyway.

  • YA! i am. my semester ends the 20th of december.. im due the 23!!! haha kinda scarey but hopefully it will work out
    taking classes online helps with being less stressed bout driving everyday and walking to class, and feeling akward because there arent many pregnant people in college. also take a few less units than you would if you werent pregnant. financial aid is very helpful to young mothers (one plus to this stressful experience) !!
