This is my first time being pregnant, and too add more stress I'm going to college full time. I'm trying to get into the nursing field and I still haven't got on any waiting list. I'm just wondering how many other mommy to be's are trying to make it in school. And how you deal with the stress. I have no motivation at the moment either which is not helping.redface.gif Any pointers on motivation for school,or with stress would GLADLY be appreciated. i know a baby should be enough motivation, but my pregnancy still hasn't quite hit me yet.

i am in college too, and it's been REALLY hard to stay motivated, especially with two little kids, and working as well.  i am horribly behind.  i wish i had some good advice to you, but know you are not the only one who is finding it hard to balance both.

Me too! Working twenty four hours a week and going to school full time... am separated from DP at the moment as well, so on top of the busy schedule, when I do get some down time, I feel terribly lonely. Not sure life could get much more stressful! Try to keep laughing, is the best advice I can offer. Easier said than done, but I try to watch, read or listen to something funny every day.
