I'm a student and as you may notice I'm 10weeks + days pregnant. It came as a surprise to us and it's proven while wonderful and amazing stressful in the college department...my grades have fallen and I can't even focus...I'm normally a straight A student and carry a 3.7 gpa...but I'll be lucky if I can get two c's and two b's or a's (taking four classes) on top of it, these are the toughest classes I've had so far....I'm a wreck and am just hoping that once I make it through the first trimester on the 27th things will ease up...anyone else having this issue? Any survival stories, tips, etc?
I am currently 10 weeks as well and I am attending university.
I am lucky in that I haven't had any morning sickness or any really bad symptoms, but I am so worried about completing school once the baby gets here.
I am also taking classes and it's awful! I am taking three classes this semester, but I would have only taken one or two if I knew I would get pregnant when I did. I found out two weeks after the semester started! I am going to take my last math class during the summer semester (so I don't forget what I have learned the past two semesters).
Anyway, I hate going to school while pregnant. At least full time. I took four last semester (when I was not pregnant) and I thought that was tough. Three is still a lot while pregnant.
Are you going to take off a semester or two when the baby is born?
I'm at university too. Have been off a couple of times due to sickness. Will be 7 months when this year finishes. Going to start my last year in sep 2013 instead of this September because we get a years fully paid maternity leave, same amount of money as we usually get too. My grades haven't dropped, and will try my best to stop it happening!
Well, I'm not really a student anymore unless you count 1x a week language class 9am-4pm but I was in my final year of university when I found out I was pg with my son (found out in October). the first tri was the worst, constantly puking or running to the cafeteria to eat pizza for nausea, but then it was pretty easy! I'm glad i finished before the baby was born!!
- Pizza quells nausea
- Try and finish as much as you can before the baby comes, it's very hard to study with a newborn and impossible with a toddler
- make friends with other mommy students, in case you go back after they are born and need to trade off for study time
- ask your teacher for a copy of the notes if you are very sick, they tend to be more understanding of MS rather than being a drunk hangover like everyone else
- ENJOY IT! Most college girls are not pregnant, so rub your belly and enjoy the perks
I graduate from my bachelor of nursing program in May and am terrified of going back to hospital clinicals with hyperemesis. I've already been in the hospital three times and have had issues with insurance refilling my anti-nausea meds. Good thing it's only four more weeks of clinical! Good luck girls, I know we can all do it!
Thanks for all the advice, and nice to know others are in the same boat...I'm not purposely letting my grades fall just a note...it's just with four courses every day of the week and full time work and now pregnancy it's taking it's toll..I also took my hardest classes this semester because they were All I had left to take before I transfer to my university. I'm transferring to the university of new haven to get my forensic science degree this fall...my mother finished school while raising my brother and my sis and I, I know it's going to be hard if not NEARLY impossible but that doesn't mean it's impossible...I can't stop now anyways, I'm too close and have come too far to stop now, getting my degree is what's going to be best for the baby, and the thought of that will push me to finish. The first semester I plan to take it easy in classes, maybe a art class, music class writing class etc stuff that comes very easy to me. My husband is behind me one hundred percent and has helped me as much as he can this semester in helping me study so I'm very thankful for that....I'm frustrated, worried and much more, but I continue to go on ^_^
