Going to school even though you JUST had a baby?

I want to go to school this fall still, but i'm having our 4th child next thursday....and it's only a few weeks after that, that the semester starts. Has anyone been through this? Is it possible? I have a friend that said she's done it.....but wondered how many other moms out there have as well?

  • Anything is possible! I went back to work full-time exactly 5 weeks after I had our daughter. I started pumping about 2 1/2 weeks after she was born, about an hour or so after feeding her in the mornings, and worked up from there. It takes a lot of planning but you can do it!! And you will be so thankful you did.

  • I had my baby May 17, and started an intensive summer course June 12. I am actually on my last day of course two today. It all worked fine, for I had family and DH to be there for my kids.

  • I don't see it being any different than women who go back to work at 6 weeks

  • they wouldn't have to worry about work for 6 weeks and have time to adjust. I would only have 2 weeks. I want to bf as well....
    I've never been in either I wouldn't know what it's like, and what things you have to adjust in your life....or even how to make it work.

  • My due date is dec 4, for a c section, and im starting school in january. I dont care, after my first was born i went to work about 4 weeks after, 60 hrs a week. someone needs to take care of my babies and it sure as hell its going to be some dead beat sperm donor. You'll be fine.
