Hi. I'm a part-time PhD student and am just through the first year so not so far yet. I have a 21 month old and I work part time too. I just manage to get enough research done. Just found out we are pregnant again and due ne t August. If I don't get sick like my last pregnancy I'll be able to keep studying until then but thinking studying with a newborn and a 2.5 year old wild man might be impossible. I probably can't defer because can't expect my supervisor to wait a few years! I'm wondering if I should drop out now and start again in a few years, or try to keep it up and hope I can somehow manage it. I don't have family around either who can help out. Has anyone been in a similar position? I'd love to hear your experiences.
