not to sure were this should be posted .. ?! pregnant and supposed to be going to uni Watch
(would hopefully like to keep the baby)
but i'm supposed to going LJM in september ..
I've already sorted out my accomodation and application .. LJM is my firm choice ..
They've just sent me an enrolment form today.
Although I won't actually be able to go to uni in September .. I still hopefully want to go ..
but i'm a bit confused .. how do i go about deferring my application if i've already applied to offers ?!
You probably are not the first and won't be the last person that they deal with who is in this situation.
Is it possible to be at Uni with a baby to look after?

Is LJM close to home? If I were you, I would try and go to a uni as close as possible, as you'll need as much help as you can get. Is the father staying with you? But otherwise just give them a ring and explain the circumstances. They'll be able to help you out and talk to you about the "family accomodation" which is much more suitable for a baby in the mix.
but since i'm supposed to be moving away from home to liverpool it'd be a bit difficult with a newborn .. especially with not having my family around for support
the fathers still gonna be living at home with his dad .. he didn't want me to keep it .. his only just coming round to the idea that i am going to .. so its hard for him ..
i'm only about 8 weeks gone .. but obviously i need to try and get this sorted sooner rather than later
so i'd find it a bit pointless going to uni this year
And yeh, I agree going this year would be a bit daft, but good luck whatever you do!
(sorry, I have no useful advice to offer :P)
What an aquaintance of me did is have the baby stay with their parents while they were at uni and visit at weekends/holidays. That way you can focus on your studies and the baby is in good hands. (and it's what my ma did with me too)
It depends on if your parents are both working though. If your mom (or dad) doesn't, then that'd be a cheaper option than day care too.
Have you spoken to your parents at all? Are they supportive?
Good Luck and Congrats!
And congratulations btw
defer for a year & even see if you could do long distance learning when you do start in sept 2009... or think about doing your degree part time (but obviously it will take longer to complete)
Congratulations too, of course!
Although the father of the baby is important, you should think about yourself in all of this. You're the one who will carry the baby for nine months and you're the one who wants to get a degree! Do what is best for you and don't let anyone influence you
