I need some advice!
I am about 6 weeks pregnant (a huge surprise!) and was accepted to physician assistant school today. The program starts in May, and I expect to deliver in the beginning of the second semester of didactic year. My husband will also be completing his master's degree during that time, and we will have a full time income during that time as well. We will be fairly close to family, but not next door by any means.
I've accepted my seat, but am wondering if I should ask for a deferment now, when it gets closer to school starting, or try and power through it. I would love to hear from other moms who have been through this.
