FI and I have been talking about TTC and working on a timeline. I will start graduate school next summer and it’s a 2 year program. We’re thinking about TTC while I’m in school, but FI worrys it will be a lot for me to handle. My mom stays at home and will be our full time babysitter so we don’t have to worry about that.
What were your experiences with pregnancy and having a baby while in school? Did you stick with the classes/program you were in? Thanks!

@MrsN14: Due to me not having the best fertility, we are looking at having a baby whilst one or obth of us are in grad school (I’m in a masters programme at the moment, hoping to be done by next July.He will be hopefully starting aroudn then. I’m still debating on PhD or work).
My FMIL is a professor. She says that whilst they will discourage it, often grad school is a good time to have a baby, and you make do. They had theiur first whilst my FFIL was in grad school.

@MrsN14: my sister had my nephew during her 3rd year in law school. Timing wasn’t great for the bar exam but as long as there’s not huge test looming at the end, go for it!

Will you be working a full time job at the same time?

Thanks for the responses! I’m glad to know it’s possible!
@ThreeMeers: I will likely be working a desk job ~20 hours a week, clinicals ~5-10 hours a week, then 1-2 classes.
