While I was not a "pregnant" college student, I did manage to get my four year degree and go through most of medical school as a single mom. Having a child ups your personal "budget" so to speak and you would be able to qualify for oodles of financial aid. You would get the maximum number of grants and now is the time to apply....before the end of feb 07 so you have "priority" standing for fall 07. As far as daycare goes, not sure what to say. You'd likely qualify for daycare a__sistance, but I wouldn't try for DSHS or anyting like that because those programs tend to look down on women in college and asking for welfare. Seems they'd rather you be stuck in some c___ppy-a__s votech program with no future...but is much quicker as far as "welfare to work" It's doable if you have the will. Good luck

I'm in grad school and worried about the same thing. My husband and I are both working on our graduate degrees (Masters due in October and Doctorate in another year and half after that). The thing about my school is that they don't have any financial aid other than loans so kinda worried. My husband and I may try to work it out where he goes to school two days and I go the other two days??? I guess only time will tell how difficult it is. I may have to take off a term for the delivery but I' am trying to load up on cla__ses while it isn't an issue yet.
