Pregnancy while in the MA program

My fiancé and I are getting married in March. I am currently in the MA program, I graduate March of 2014. We are wanting to start our family, soon after the wedding. However, we will wait enough so I can finish the program before the baby arrives. I am just worried that being pregnant could cause issues during clinicals? Due to the fact of drawing eachother's blood and practicing shots etc. A lot of people have told me its not a big deal, but wondering what other opinions are. Thanks!

Re: Pregnancy while in the MA program

Hi farmerswife.

I was in CMA class w/a girl who had a baby 5 days before our final exams. She was able to come back and take them on time(written & practical), but she's gonna have to wait to do her externship. She said she's not gonna start that until the end of March. She's really bummed/concerned about that, bc she's scared she's gonna forget how to do the skills we practiced in class.

Best of luck to you!
