    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Pregnant in Nursing School

    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,
