Hi, I'm 33 years old and have one child age 10 and am currently 25 weeks pregnant. I live with my partner.



I have been offered an interview in a weeks time for an Access to Nursing course which I've always wanted to do. Its 15 hrs a week plus home work. My partner said he would love to go part time and look after baby while I go to college, which suits me fine.



I'm very nervous about going as they may take one look at me and decide it will be too much for me. Also I'm worried about my age and that everyone will be younger than me. I know the interviews are in groups.



Am I worrying too much? Should I go or wait a year? I know I'm getting on a bit and don't want to wait any longer, plus I'm sick of staying at home all the time.



Any answers or comments would be appreciated .

Definitely go. I worked on by BSBA in accounting while pregnant. I just let the instructors I had for the semester I was due know ahead of time and they worked with me.



Also, I use to work for a nursing school. The majority of students were all mothers and the new trend was that the classes were mainly made up of women in their late 30's and older.

I would do it. The biggest mistake I ever made was stopping school cause I was pregnant. My son is 6 1/2 and I still have not gone back to finish my degree.

There it's always time for your kids and you should never feel bad for living your own life. I'm sure your child will love you no matter what.

Yes, you should go for it! Being pregnant is not an illness, and if anyone looks at you funny, it's their problem and not yours. Only you know what would be too much for you. And don't worry about your age. People way older than you have gone to college! Good luck to you!

If you don't do it now, you never will. This is going to be the best thing you could possibly do for your family.



My daughter is 3 years old and I just recently got my Associate's in Accounting and planning on going back for my BA (I'm also pregnant, 32 weeks tomorrow!). There is no better time to do it than now.

Thankyou for your reply, it's very inspiring. I think I will go to the interview. I need a career and want to put something back into the community.

I personally would go because having two kids I know if you don't do it now you never will! If your partners on board and willing to watch the kids take it and run with it!



You deserve to do something you want just because your a mommy doesn't mean life's over at all! Go for it who cares if there younger than you,younger by no way means better! I'm sure the people will hear you out and judge you on wether or nippy you are right for the job not your age or baby bump!



If they do than they don't sound like very nice to go to collage with and be around a lot,Your son is 10 so he can do a lot more for himself than a younger child and he can even be a special helper and help daddy out when the new baby comes along.



I make soaps and bath bombs at home (I know it's no degree) but a 4 months before my twins were born one of my husbands mates that worked in marketing who had a wife that I'm friends with and often gifted soaps to offered to help me set up a business from home seem as we had two spare rooms anyway (lucky because now with baby number three on the way I don't know what we wild do with all my stuff if we hadn't had 2 spare rooms) I wasn't sure I mean we had the money to get it up and running and his mate was going to make me a website get adds out there flyers and emails!



With the boys on the way I wasn't sure but my husband sold it to me he said you can make them while the boys are napping and when I get home ill take care of them and on my day of (he gets 1 a week I love his job! Lol) and weekends he said its your dream I have mine and a beautiful family why shouldn't you plus you'll make us some extra money to really spoil the boys with,



I thought you know what? With his help I could do this and long story short I took it and ran now I have two beautiful boys that are 2 a baby boy on the way and business that we are in the process of expanding that earns us a extra 790 on average a month (that's a bad month that is) but with his jobs we have a lovely 5 bedroom 3 bathroom house and we couldn't be happier!



Everyone should get to live there dream I say go for it!
