I admit I am bragging, but I'm so exicted! I finished my last final today and I graduate on Saturday (with a BS in mechanical engineering)!!! Some people I know questioned whether or not I could finish school and be pregnant at the same time, so it makes me really proud to have accomplished my goal. Being pregnant somehow made me get better grades than I have ever gotten before. I'm starting work next week and will work part time with my dh doing surveying stuff on campus until this baby comes out. (Surveying has nothing to do with my degree - it's just to make some extra money and give me something active to do outside a few hours per day.) Then I'll be home with the baby. =) It will be the first time since about age 14 that I won't be working at a paid job or going to school. Big adjustment. *Bragging done*<br><br>
Anyone else working/going to school until baby comes?

Congrats! Finishing finals always feels great, but the last final before graduation is special. Special congrats for finishing while pregnant!<br><br>
I teach at a university and we just finished too. I'll teach a mini-course May 7-18th (hopefully) before the babies arrive.<br><br>
Good luck!

Congrats!! I hope you have a wonderful graduation on Saturday!<br><br>
My last final was this past Saturday and it was such a relief to be done, but I'm no where near done with school. I'll start back up in the fall (online) and hopefully be on the nursing program waitlist next spring.

congratulations michelle! what a great feeling that must be...<br><br>
i have three more pages to go on my last paper of grad school and then graduation on the 16th! it will be such a relief to finally be finished.<br><br>
i have to admit, there were moments when i felt like i must have been crazy to cut it so close with this pregnancy and the end of school but it's all worked out in the end so i'm not complaining.<br><br>
enjoy your time off from work!
