I spent the evening trying to work things out, and see how I can make it work. It has really put me at ease. I am currently living on campus and I waitress to pay for my accomodation and essentials, as well as getting benefits for students who are independent. Worked out that after the birth of bub, I will be eligible for approximately $625.90 more fortnightly. I am going to do Uni full time for the rest of the academic year up until summer break in December. I can either defer that following semester/year, and go back the year after, or just go part time. (Which I will probably will do anyway when I do go back)

Sorry for the blabber. I just like having everything sorted out in writing.

I totally understand....I had Tucker over Christmas holidays of my final year of nursing.....I went back FT after I had him and it was the hardest thing I ever did....but with a lot of support, I made it!! And now I have a job that I love and have been a nurse for going on 8 years. I wouldn't have it any other way!! You can do it!! Do you have other supports ie. family?

Thanks for the support guys! I honestly don't know how I will handle it, but I love my degree, so I will just take things as they come I guess. I am not sure on how my family will be honestly... I am yet to tell them. I don't think I will have a lot of support from them though, we have not been close since I was 16.
