pregnant and in school
Fri, 08-14-2009 - 2:21pm

Unplanned here. Not necessarily unwanted, but unwanted right now! I'm only 23, boyfriend of 2.5 yrs is 22. I'm still in grad school with tons of debt, and he has a job (thank God) but was planning on attending grad school next year.

Any ideas on how to get through the hardest semester of your life after just finding out you're pregnant? I was already dreading it because students in this program average around 4 hrs sleep/night. Also the professors constantly give out memos, sometimes 10 pages sometimes 30 pgs - all due the next morning, for students that screw up in class. Now doing this and being pregnant...I think I'm screwed.

Any tips on how not to fail, make a good impression, and still get recommendations for a job, which will already be hard to get since I'll almost be ready to pop when I start looking?

I don't really have any advice on being pregnant while in school.
