So if all goes well, I’ll be having a LO in February. I am in grad school, and the baby will arrive around exam time (trimester system). I am in my final year, and I will have better job prospects if I graduate on time in June due to a variety of factors.
i am faced with a conundrum: I can manuever my schedule so that I graduate on time but have two weeks to one month before I have to return to class depending on when the baby is born, or I can take a trimester off and graduate late, which will really hurt my job prospects.
I know that plenty of women have had babies in grad school, so I would love to hear your thoughts. I have a very supportive DH who has paternity leave that he can take to help me out, but I assume that I will be physically exhausted during my final trimester at school. Obviously, I do not want to fail my classes. Thoughts?
