I would wait until after you have the baby, just start in the fall. And don't type just in italics...

advice about what mama?



school is def hard when you are pregnant but it takes up all the time you would spend worrying about little shit. if u are giving birth mid semester u neeed to make arrangements with your teachers about work, tests, papers and such, cause they will still hold u accountable

I went to school while on modified bedrest in my last trimester. Get a rolling backpack, it helps. Take it easy, bring snacks... advise your teachers of your pregnancy, and know where all of the elevators are on campus!



I was always SUPER tired but it was doable for me!

It's great that your going to try and stay in school but if you think you might fail or not be able to attend at certain times I would wait.

I went to class the day before I delivered and went back the next week for finals.
It can be done.

Pretty sure you can only miss like 2-3 days of summer school and you will need more than that for recovery. I would sit this semester out. I had my son in July after my junior year of college and I sat out the fall semester as well for more time with him

I was just going through this myself but I decided to wait. Because I'm do in June I knew I would be missing a lot of days so I can spend it with him. I think waiting untill the fall is best.

I was going to school full time during all my pregnancies. You can do it! If your baby is due July, and you are finished in August, this is pretty ideal! I has a November baby, and classes ended in December, so I would have my DH take her to me for feedings, and I would pump as well. It worked out pretty well, and my professors were all beyond understanding, they were in fact excited to see my baby.



I had my first daughter a few days before my finals in March. I literally left the hospital after having her, and went straight to school and took my finals. That was a little overwhelming, and my professors offered to let me make it up, but I just wanted to be finished.



I got lucky with my last, and she was born a month after I finally graduated. I was doing an internship for radiology, so the whole pregnancy was tricky. I had to wear extra lead shields, and there were many things that I could only have limited participation in to decrease radiation exposure to my baby.



So I have been through it all. I say don't give up! Get your schooling done ASAP, because as your baby ages, and as you add onto your family it only gets MORE difficult.

I was in school during the 2nd trimester. I had to drop my classes because I went into labor 3 months early. It was a huge stress on me, and hauling books a mile into the school was awful. I actually went into labor while walking into school.

my advise dont do it. its so hard to finish after you have the baby and then as it gets closer to your due date the teachers dont become so nice i started going to school and a few of my teachers were good but once it came to having my son i had to return immediately and it was really hard to leave him. your better off waiting because your gonna want that bonding time with the baby.
