  • GED classes are always free. Call the school district and ask them about GED classes in your area. In fact in our area they even let you enroll at the local college and do classes online. The test itself isnt free but only costs $7 here in NC. I think other states are about the same. I know because I checked into this for my dd who had a baby when she was 17 and didnt finish school. You just have to be committed to doing it is all. With her she just needed to do a couple months of classes and then take the test.

  • After the baby comes you'll have other things on your mind for a while. 12 weeks.... Unless you really think that you'll be up for the last two weeks with a new baby coming around that time, then probably you should put it off, although doing it before the baby comes would have been good.

  • If you pass the practice test, you don't have to take the 12 wk course. The GED test here costs $40 dollars but being you are pregnant you should be able to get a waiver. They have waivers for different situations if you really can't afford it. The only reason you would have to wait a period is if you dropped out of school within the last 90 days. After 90 days you are clear to take the test. GL!
