To go or not to go.....that is the question
So we have been faced with a little dilemma. We thought we had timed this pregnancy perfectly so that spring semester would be out and I could just take summer off and go back in fall. Come to find out we actually timed it horribly. After my ultrasound I am due May 7Th and we just found out that my last final is may 6Th. Hmmm....this is not good. With Abby I was induced because I was 4 days late, with Joslynn I was induced 2 weeks early due to complications. So will this be the time that I go into labor by myself? Who knows. Normally I would not worry and just go and let whatever happens happen but after talking to my teachers I have found that if I were to go into labor and miss a final they could not let me retake it due to certain deadlines and the earliest they would allow me to take the finals is the 3rd. So what to do? The biggest problem we have is if for some reason I went even a little early and had to miss a final I would not only have to retake all my classes but we would have to repay FASFA anything that they gave us. Now I don't know about any of you but there is a reason why we qualify for FASFA in the first place, we can't afford to pay for me to go to school. Another thing that my husband so kindly brought up is how badly I deal with stress. I stress over little details so when the big details hit I pretty much break down. Not good for either me or baby. So do I risk failing my classes to get another semester under my belt? Or do I play it safe and take the next two semesters off? This is the decision that I have to make. And let me tell you I am very stressed about it!
