Pregnant in Nursing School
khleo3patra posted:
I am 7 weeks and 5 days pregnant and I am currently in nursing school. I graduate in a few days (Dec 2012) getting my BSN. My problem is that with the side effects of being pregnant, I am not motivated to finish up the last few weeks of this quarter. I need some advice from the other experts out there what I can do to gain extra energy to push through this last quarter. My husband and I have agreed on trying the last quarter of my school and we did but I am now paying the price due to lack of energy and motivation to do class work. Please help!

Hi Khleo3patra and Welcome!

Congratulations on your pregnancy and graduation!

While waiting for others to respond I wanted to suggest you pop over to our 1st Trimester Community to get suggestions from other moms-to-be experiencing the same symptoms.

Best wishes for the last few weeks of school,
