    Hahaha! About to start phd in a few weeks and, yes, BFP. Life is amusing. Given I lost the
    last pregnancy at 12 weeks, I'm going to proceed with the phd and won't say anything until I have some more certainty about ending up with a baby in 9mths. It would suck to pass up this opportunity if I'm ttc again in a few months!

    Hi, thought I'd pop in and say I really admire you all for PhDing with kids! I'm pregnant and my DF is doing his PhD ( so I can't really join the club, lol ) but I see first hand how stressful it can be. He also balances teaching work with the uni. He's on a full APA scholarship which helps.

    A woman DF works with who also did her PhD reserved a place for her little one at the on campus childcare centre for her 3rd year for in case she needed it if anything fell through with her caring arrangements. It turns out she ended up really needing the place and it was invaluable come final thesis writing madness in third year!

    Oh gosh... I dont know what i would say (i know what i would like to say but prob wouldnt have the balls if the person was my supervisor!), but i would lose all respect for my supervisor there and then.. Which would make a phd blardy hard!!

    My phd supervisors are both mums with young kids. And the area I am researching is very family-oriented, so, I'm hoping the response is supportive when I eventually let them know.

    Fair enough. Age and fertility are unfortunately not on my side, hence my not waiting until phd is over.
