    sparkswillfly thanks :) yeah I guess I'm just way too impatient. I have always been that way, wanting to juggle everything at once. I would be doing the access course aswell as being in full time college and working right now if I was old enough. I will give it a good think, but when I have my implant removed (the same yr as I go to uni) I shall just go on the pill and what happens, happens xxx

    :) You have sorta the same plans as me.
    OH and I are getting married in April next year and he said we can start TTC then, because I'm wanting to go back to uni to study midwifery.
    Our plans are to start TTC next year, have our baby(s), and me go to Uni once he/she is a few years old.

    Lots of people do uni with children in tow, it'd be hard but you can make it work.
    Good luck!

    Lol my mum's friend, her husband is disabled, idk what's wrong with him but sometimes he has to use a wheelchair. And she was desperate for a baby but he didn't think he would be a good dad because of his disability. So she pretended to take the pill and told him about a yr after the baby was born haha. He couldn't have been happier when she found out she was pregnant though! And now they're trying for another, been told they are having twins lol! xx

    i graduated uni a couple of years ago now (sociology and criminology so slightly different) and it was tough and that was without a LO, but i think it is achievable, i no my uni had a nursery too. i actually taught access (before Maddi), though access sociology! and its an excellent way to uni, i did it the old fashioned way - gcse's-alevels-uni. anyway although uni is tough, you get a lot of time to study alone so if your structured i think with a LO its fine. really good luck :)

    i no i do! one of my friends has just told me she's expecting and i'm so happy for her, but part of me thinks, oh i miss being pregnant and all the excitement of finding out, telling people and scans etc :blush:
    and i was worse when we were TTC, no one i knew closely was expecting, but people at work were and i was like :hissy:

    i am also studing sociology and criminology at uni (what a coincidence to the post above lol)
    anyway..im not sure if the uni's where u live have off campus students?
    an off campus student allows you to complete all course content from home..therefore you would be able to look after your child and do your work without having to pay for the expense of child care :) plus u save gas money! which we all need to do =P lol

    my cousin...fall pregnant this year and is having her first child next year and she is at uni...shes having to take a year off next year to get her and the baby settled. So maybe you could take a year off to get your self sorted, or go to uni part time?

    theres heaps of choices for you :) so make the best one for you, but know that you have heaps of time to have a baby or complete uni, so dont rush anything

    good luck!

    Hi Princess! Am I right in thinking you are 17? I really understand your wanting to have a baby, I really do. I have been desperate for a baby for the last 5 years, but during this time I have been studying, and only gained my nursing degree last year. There were moms on the course who had babies, and who got pregnant whilst on the course, although this meant that they had to intermit and their course took them a year or two longer than they hoped. I am now pregnant with my first baby after all that waiting :happydance: and I know that now I have my degree and a job I will get all the maternity benefis I need (NHS isn't too bad!). But if you had a child as a student the NHS bursary is not very substantial, especially the means tested degree bursary :dohh:
    I'm not saying not to go for it now, I understnad how you feel, but you are still young, and have ambition, so maybe qualify as a midwife first, then have a baby?
    Good luck in whatever you decide :hugs:
