Any other mom-to-be's that are also students?

I'm 25 and still in school getting my Math degree. Are you facing the challenge of morning sickness and complete exhaustion while also trying to juggle homework?

  • you are definitely not the only one, alot of us have been there done that, you just have to take it the best you can, if you can't handle it all drop some classes so you aren't as stressed, keep going, but drop some so the burden isn't as big and you aren't going crazy, you want to be healthy, not cause unnecessary risk to the baby. School will always be there. Stay healthy

  • I'm 28 and just recently started back to pursue a pharmacy degree. The baby is going to slow things down but now I really have motivation to continue. Getting that degree will help me support her even better.
