Re: Am I setting myself up for failure??
I'm like this too, and would've had the same plans you did before my first. Having gone through it, now, even I would counsel taking the semester off. It might set you back, but trust me - you're going to be too sleep deprived to do basic math, let alone rigorous studying. It's not failing to take a step back... women may be able to do anything, but there's nothing that says we have to do everything at once. Schooling will be there. Your LO is only this young once. and good luck with whatever you decide!
