Any of you ladies going to school high school or college how hard is it with a baby? I'm taking most of my college classes online right now and I'm due in July but I wanna go back next semester so I don't fall too far being. I'm just nervous about how it's gonna be with a newborn and I also have a toddler

I'm in college and our new semester just started last week and I'm doing online classes until after i have her bc i know I'm not going to feel like getting up and actually going to a classroom. It's still a lil stressful but worth it

Its easier than people make it out to be. I have an 8 month old and will have another in May. I have been going to college full time, on campus, and its been pretty simple. I have easy access to a babysitter, which makes it better and i try to do all of my hw either between classes or during my sons naps because its easier to get things done when he doesnt want to play with me or my work.

I'm in high school and I just recently got homebound. Before it was really hard walking around and different things because of leg/back/stomach pain. And I'm getting a home tutor starting after I have my baby for 6 weeks after then I'm returning to school. I'm hoping its not gonna be too hard, because I usually go to bed late anyway and if I get more than 4 hours of sleep I'm more tired than if I got 8. I'm nervous too.. But we will see.

For me I decided I was going to do online classes for the first semester after I have the baby and then go back to regular class the next semester after.. the reasoning is that I know the baby will probably be up a lot in the night and I want to have as much time with my newborn as possible... I know bonding is very important and I want my baby to at least have the first few months with me to his/herself . So excited about the baby!

I will be working full time after baby is born (my manager put me on leave right now). I have a break in my program at school until august. Then I will stay at home with baby during the day while his dad works, and do night classes.

I have a 4-year old and I will be having my baby boy next month, I'm enrolled currently in college taking 11 credit hours. For the moment I do not find it stressful since my son is very independent. I try to keep a positive mind that everything will turn out good. Also I do my work when ever my son is not around or when there is no noise in my home since it helps me focus. I think having a daily schedule and everything planned will help stay on track. Stay positive you can do it!

I work two jobs go to college full time have a 4 year old and I'm pregnant. Its not easy that for sure. But you have to MAKE time for your baby and remember that in scheduling your classes they can help you with that if you go to a counselor
