You mean before you start the internship? I’m not sure I would do that. Honestly I wouldn’t start trying until one of you is settled into a permanent position (which sounds like it would be you first). I know internships in nutrition are a bit different because it’s part of the track to be a registered dietician, so maybe I am wrong, but I would hope that somewhere you intern that you may have a chance to get hired there, so I would probably wait until after the internship and when you have a full dietician position. That way you don’t have to worry about facing hiring discrimination while pregnant or if they just know you have kids.

@mjax:  No. I think your SO underestimates just how much time a baby takes up.

I personally wouldn’t have a child until both you and your fi are settled in full time positions.  Children take up a lot of time and are very expensive.

mjax Internships are usually the last thing you do before graduation, and the guidelines are usally strict as far as absences, being late, etc. They can also be stressful, especially with you being so close to graduation. I don’t think it would be a good idea, babies are a lot of work. It can be done but won’t be easy, I had a friend who had a child and once she became pregnant she missed classes because of health reason, and had to sit out a semester, her last semester. She wanted to go back but the healing process didn’t allow her to go back as soon as she would have liked. Don’t worry about the age, it’s better to do everything you need to do first so that you can provide the best sistiuation for the baby.

How would you be financially with you in a low paid or unpaid internship, just out of school and him working full time and paying for school as well? That sounds like a lot of money out on only one income.

Also, if he is both working and schooling, how much time does he have to help with the kid?

Think of the home life/financial logistics of this as well.

I wouldn’t do it.

Is a year or two really doing to make much difference if you wait? Because I feel that it will make a huge difference if you jump in too soon.
