I dropped out of school to get married when I was 19. I finally went back to university at the age of 30 and I was a divorced mom of one 5 yo at the time. I took classes one class a semester while working full-time for 12 years and finally completed my Bachelor's degree. Then I went on for a Master's degree, but I had remarried in the meantime and I was pregnant at the time I graduated with the Bachelor's. So I worked full-time and worked on my Master's degree all while having a newborn at home. I got pregnant again and did my thesis research while dealing with morning (all day) sickness.
: I credit my wonderful, supportive husband and grown daughter who both helped out a lot at home and thus enabled me to complete my degree. I was pregnant when I graduated with my Master's degree, and had a 17 yo and a 2 yo at home.

It can be done, but I think having a support network at home (whether spouse, partner, family members, grandparents, etc.) is essential to make it work.

Good luck!
