Wanting a baby, but at uni!! need advice!!


Hi everyone!

I've joined this sight, seeking a little bit of advice..

Last year I had surgery to remove endometriosis, and now it has come back.. I don't have a huge window of opportunity to fall pregnant. I am only nineteen. But my partner and I own our own house, I am at uni and he is working full time. I really want to start trying to conceive soon, but I don't know how I will cope with uni!!

Has anyone here studied while pregnant/ with a new born?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

Also, I have a bowel condition called gastroparsesis.. And I have been told that a caesarean would be my best option for delivery.. Can anyone tell me about their caesarean experience? or experience of being pregnant with an intestinal track condition?

Thanks heaps guys!! Can't wait to read your responses
Have a lovely day everyone xx

if you're already struggling with endo, i would start NOW! otherwise you may lose your chance imo.

i'm in uni too! i was pregnant twice during my first degree and raised a baby while i finished it, and i'm going to be having another baby during this second degree i'm doing. it can be hard. you have to ask yourself about your motivation level, and about your academic skill. im very good at school and having a kid pushes me to do well. so i've been able to manage.

support is important too, because you'll need adequate and affordable childcare.

i wish you the best. feel free to friend me! here for you!

Thank you!

We have decided to start trying ASAP. We tried during ovulation this month, (about a week and a half ago) and I have started to develop really sore breasts.. So we are hoping for a positive test this month!!!
I am really good at school, and think that having a little one will increase my motivation! & my uni has a daycare centre, plus my mum is moving down to where we live soon.
Thats awesome that you were able to raise a bub while at uni, and are having another!! What was the hardest part about it? Exams, assignments.. etc..

I'm not too sure how to friend on here.. lol..
Thanks heaps for your advice!!

the hardest part honestly? the mom guilt. you will feel TERRIBLE when you cant focus on your child and you have to focus on studies. the mommy guilt is hard.

also if you procrastinate at all and then your kid gets the flu and now you cant do the assignment... that sucks hahaha.

and sleeplessness. sleep will be scarce. but you learn to cope.
