I'm 19 years old and currently in college and looking for some advice on what to do for the rest of the semester after I have the baby in April?

You will not be able to attend class for at the very least a month after delivery. Talk to your instructor's to see if you can complete the work off-site or is attendance mandatory? It is likely you won't WANT to go back or feel up to it for even longer, especially if you have a c-section. Better to find out and withdraw or file for and incomplete than to fail any courses.

What do you mean by what to do for the rest of the semester? First, you need to make your instructors aware of this. Second, you need to find out how you can complete the courses you are taking because after you have the baby you are still under doctor's orders for six weeks about the things you can do to a point. Third, are you set up for a baby with clothing, bed, feeding requirements such as formula, bottles, and those things unless breast feeding, babysitters, doctor appointments and so on. Fourth, getting custody, child support, and visitation set up so you and dad and baby are all protected on the obligations and relationships.
