    I just talked to Baylor and I will have to defer my acceptance from this year to next year. I am really ready to get started, but I'm also pregnant and due in October. Not good timing there...

    It's not possible to take a leave at that time, and my baby is due around exam time for Block 2. So, it looks like I'll be in the class of 2007 instead of 2006.

    I'm very happy that they gave me the option to defer. I was worried that it wouldn't be offered because I was accepted off the waitlist. Whew!

    Looks like I'll be hanging out here for another year. :)

    Hey. . . that's awesome, when are you due??

    Congratulations and I am SO HAPPY they let you defer! That's great. . . I know you probably want to get started (both with school and being a mom) but the choice is obvious and you've made the right one. Best of luck with the future little-spacecadet and keep us updated! :D

    Well, that gives me hope ... of course, I have to get off of the waitlist first, but I'm due in December, and I want some time to spend at home with the baby before I start school!! Congrats!

    If I got pregnant this time next year I would FREAK OUT!! I'm only 21 so maybe that has something to do with it... but I'm just saying I would totally FREAK OUT! Would anyone else totally freak out?

    I was looking forward to suffering through the first year with you spacecadet. :( But I'm glad you have the courage to make such a difficult decision and have your priorities right. :) Good luck. Hope to see you next year. :)

I don't think the TX lists move much (if at all) before June.

    By the way, if you end up having to interview again next year (God forbid!), I found some sites where I could rent a really nice maternity suit for like $70 for six weeks.

That's why I hadn't posted on the 2002 classmates thread yet - wasn't sure if I'd be starting or not. I would have really liked to be classmates with you guys. Hopefully we'll have another great SDN bunch next year.

    spacecadet,

    Make sure and let me know those sites ... my husband isn't too keen on me going out and spending major bucks for a maternity suit!

    My waitlist letter said that most of the movement will be towards the end of June, but since I can't just sit around and wait, I'm working on my reapplication!

    Enjoy your time with your children :)

    Relatively Prime -

    Just FYI - I got pregnant a month after my 22nd birthday! If you're ready for it, you don't freak out. And even if you do freak out at first, hearing the heartbeat for the first time will certainly put all your worries to rest :)
