  • That its up to you because its you body and your life? Im in college and went back when my youngest was 2. I figured that way by the time she started kindergarten Id have my degree and could go back to work.

  • i'm in school now with a 9 month old and i won't lie it was really really hard for me. im just taking online classes this next semester but i'm also working as a STNA. I'm taking my time because my hubby tells me all the time we don't NEED me to have my nursing degree any time soon to just take my time. I started back to school thinking i'm going to finish this in 3 years.. uhhh no. i'm slowing down and enjoying my life with my hubby and son and by next summer we're going to start trying for number 2. Unless you NEED that money i would say take it nice and slow but definitely do it =D

  • I personally would wait. I got pg while I was going to school. I had to almost quit 3 months before I graduated, because I was having preterm labor and heart problems. I worked everything out with the school, finally, but it would have been better if I would have waited a few more months. At least dont start trying untill you know you will be graduated by the time the baby comes. good luck
