I'm going to be 20 this year (march 16th) and I have been working on my high school diploma ever since October of 2009. I dropped out last year because of personal issues, and I have been working on and off since...But since I became pregnant Ive been so distracted by it I don't know if i will be able to reach the point of getting my diploma. because i have reached the age limit for my free high school diploma. My baby is due any day and i haven't been able to study how will i manage a hsd and a baby?

I'm almost 30 and I'm STILL in nursing school (most nurses n Denmark are 25'ish when the graduate) - I'm out of fundings (goverment student's surport system). It takes a bit more work, planning and working while in school - but it will be worth it at the end. Hang in there. Would it be an option for you to do a few class at a time, if you need to work to pay for your HS?

im 20 years old and still in high school. my son is now 1 years old. it was real hard trying to manage school and a baby. when my son was a newborn the school would let me take him to school and the other students would watch him when they got done with their work. it was a big help even the disiplent person would watch him once in a while. this school year i couldnt take him to school becuz he was walkin by then and we had a new principle so i had to stay home with him. my teacher would drop off all my work and i do it at home then she would pick it up every couple of weeks. i had to make up 5 credits to graduate. i got all my credits done just a couple weeks ago im done with school but cant get my daploma till may. when i would do my school work my son would color or even rip up my work i just finished lol. yeah it is hard but its not impossible. talk to the school they will most likely work something out with you. try half days and doing the rest at home. im class of 2010!!

Alot of people use alternate HSD programs. Focus on being happy, having a healthy baby and making your life better. Alot of private schools will offer HSD programs at a low price. I have had several friends go that route and are not college grads. Either way don't give up and don't let anyone slow you down.

i did the same. i dropped out with only 3 credits left to achieve but working and a high risk pregnancy i couldnt do it all. i decided to get my ged. took me 6 weeks start to finish and now 12 years later im working towards my aa degree in accounting. i am also a mom of 5 with my youngest being almost 4. i havent found anything diffrent between hsd n ged. i in tern got paid more at some jobs due to my experience and not education. you do whats best for you. also contact your local dshs office they have funing to help you as well to pay for your education as well hun. hope it helps but dont stress out. pregnancy should be a memorable time. as well as enjoying your baby. do whats best for you.
