Expecting a baby 1 month into LS!

Expecting a baby 1 month into LS!
« on: April 12, 2007, 09:01:12 AM »
I am entering LS in August. My husband and I really want a baby, and through the miracle of surrogacy, we are expecting our baby at the end of September.  I know this will be hard, but what makes it even more complicated is that we will have to travel to California (We live in Texas) to pick up the baby.  We have decided to have a planned C-section so that we can prepare for the baby and work around our demanding schedules. Then my husband will take some time off from work to care for the baby while I soldier on through LS.
We really want this baby more than anything.  I've also decided against deferring my enrollment until next year. That being said, can anyone out there offer me some advice?

I have no idea on the baby and law school thing, but congratulations anyway!  I'm sure you'll be VERY tired!  Which school are you going to?  When I visited TTU, the girl that gave me a tour had a baby towards the end of her 1L year, so it's doable somehow.

I've read the baby M case and seen the movie.  Hopefully, our surrogate will not do that to us, because if she does, I will probably have to defer enrollment to pursue a legal battle.

Hey!! Me too!! but I'll be having the baby myself right at the start of LS. The school said I could take 2 weeks off after the birth. I have been in contact with other mother's of young children at my school who have hooked me up with advice and resources. Contact your school and let them know your situation. They will most likely be supportive.

I don't have any advice but Kennedy and struggles I have to say how much I admire you both for becoming mothers while starting law school. I think it's great and I wish you both the best.
