My husband and I have a three year old daughter and have been talking about having a second child. I am currently going to college for nursing and am in my second clinical semester. To all of those moms who are students as well (especially nursing students): Is it feasible to be pregnant in college? Does anyone who has experienced it seriously advise against it?

I was in nursing school when my baby was only 10 days old! I had to get a note from my doctor stating that I was healthy enough to continue. I would check with your doctor. It would depend on when you're due. If it will be in the middle of the semester, I would wait because in the program I was in they gave you TWO days off (you still had to make up the work). Nursing school is demanding, as you know. I would think about it, but it definitely can be done!

If I were you, I would check the rules with your school. I know that the community college here will NOT allow it. If they do allow it, I would think really hard about it since you will be around a lot of sick people and your immune system will be down since it's working for 2 then. Besides you may be really sick, or just completely exhausted between a 3 year old, being preggo and school. - If you do though, GOOD LUCK and it's an awesome field to be in.
