  • I gave birth during the middle of one of my semesters. But it looks like you will be finished with the Spring semester before you give birth, so it won't be that bad. I biggest thing with going to school and being pregnant was my memory. I use to have an awesome memory but since I became pregnant, I have had to really work at remembering things.

  • I'm 18weeks pregnant and I go to school too, its not that bad for me. U just have to learn not to take too many classes and overload yourself. Since you're through with the first trimester u should have more energy and I think its a good use of your time. Good luck!

  • You'll be fine! Make sure to walk around on any breaks, take water and snacks, and put your feet up when possible. You can do it! =)

  • I went to school while pregnant, & it wasn't bad. I sat down before semester started & made myself a schedule- made sure I gave myself plenty of time to rest & relax. You may need to study a little harder, because the hormones can mess with your memory. Also, I'd recommend giving your professors a heads-up soon after class starts. Let them know when you are due, & that you will be making every effort to be in class. Most will be more than happy to work with you. Hugs doll, enjoy your classes!
