La Tina you don't say how old you are, or how pregnant you are. If you are 5 months plus then you should be thinking about where the baby is going to go when you go back to school or who is going to look after her whilst you home school. Luckily babies sleep a lot when they are new born and by the time they are 6 months they have one long nap in the morning and one in the afternoon until they are about 18 months.

Try and get organised so that you know what is going to happen and when. Prioritise your day into what homework needs getting in and what is due. Try and get yourself ahead in class now to take the pressure off when little one arrives.

You are going to have to be really stricked on yourself. Homework will need to be done before you allow yourself some free time. It's really hard trying to juggle both school and babies but if you have a great support net work around you then things will be so much easier.

There is nothing really you can do now but have a little fun before your baby is born because once she is here you are going to be working day and night to raise her. Once she is here the answer is get a routine sorted for her and you so that you all know what you are doing. If you plan your day you will achieve everything you want to. For the first few weeks sleep when you can if your tired and work when you can. Then when the night feeds become fewer take every opportunity to get stuck into those books and work towards a better future for you both.

I wish you luck. Things are going to be hard but worth it!
