My second beta this morning was 394, that’s more than four times what it was on Friday!!! My ultrasound is scheduled for August 5! I am so excited!!! We have told most of our close family. I am playing with what I am going to do in regards to school. I am suppose to start the nursing program this fall, and I would still like to. However I am hoping to be able to take a year off starting the Spring of 2009. Well actually I would be taking a year off of the program but I still have to take microbiology, which would be wonderful to take in the Fall of 2009 and then rejoin the nursing program in the spring of 2010. But I don’t know if that is possible or not. But at the same time, I hate to change all of my plans in case (God forbid) something happens with the pregnancy. The other option would be to just defer my admission to the nursing program until Fall of 2009, which is when I originally thought I was going to be entering the program before they found a spot for me this fall. I just don’t know what to do. If anyone has any words of wisdom as to what I should do, perhaps stories of people who went through nursing school while pregnant, or anything else that might be of use.



  1. Awww hun, I am so happy for you! What a great beta number!

    I would be inclined to plow through and get nursing school over with, but that is just me. This is coming from someone that took her years to get her degree, and wishes she’d just plunged right in.

    Besides, ya gotta think positive!

  2. First, congratulations!!!

    Second, I’m sure you could start the program and at least get through this semester and then put yourself on deferment after that depending on how you feel. I would contact the school to see what they offer and what is possible.

    Third, congratulations again!!! So exciting!

  3. Saw your happy news on Lost and Found. Congratulations. I am in the same boat as you. I am supposed to start paramedic school in September and it goes through June, there is no break and no deferring. I am due in March as well. Looks like school is on hold while I grow this baby and work full time! Best of luck.
