  1. Alright guys, I just got invited to an interview in a couple weeks and I am so excited! Downside is I will be 35 weeks pregnant My questions are: 1) How I can help the interviewers not worry about my ability to perform in PA school with a baby? I had my first baby during undergrad while working two jobs and I totally made it work. My husband is super supportive and I am confident we will be fine with the second baby too. I am just worried about being judged (even unintentionally) and don’t want my ginormous belly to ruin my chances of getting in haha 2) What the heck do I wear when I am that massive? Any advice is appreciated haha, thank you!
  2. Hello. I am looking for as many professional opinions as I can get right now. Work in an office with other doctors? Ask them too.... Please! Patient comes in for IUD (Mirena) implant. Medication in given to soften cervix, IUD inserted, the end..... Patient is 32 and unknowingly conceived 10 days prior. Medication and IUD SHOULD (statistically) terminated unknown pregnancy. Patient goes to ER thinking she has a cyst causing pain on left ovary, only to discover she is pregnant, with a boy (17w3d). Seen at OB for ultrasound. RNP thinks she sees IUD, but unsure. It is never looked for again. Doctor seen through rest of pregnancy says there is "no evidence" of it being there, assumes it came out soon after going in. What steps would you take during a suspected IUD pregnancy or following delivery to ensure the IUD was out of patient's body? (Not in uterus or somewhere else in abdomen) 1 year since birth of child, no return of menses, and IUD was recently found in uterus on ultrasound. How would you proceed? Bayer was ZERO help when called for guidance.
  3. Hello! I am a recent PA graduate, just got my certification and state licensure in the last month. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant with my first child, and am looking for my first job out of PA school. My baby will be due in early February, and I'm barely showing now, to the point where it's not noticeable in most clothing. When in the interviewing/ hiring process should I mention my pregnancy? I know that it is not legal for them to ask me, nor am I obligated to disclose this. I have recently done an interview at a large county hospital, and am waiting to hear back on their decision. My plan currently is to disclose my pregnancy after they give me a letter of intention, but before I sign the contract. Some people have told me to wait until I already have signed the contract, but it seems like getting off on the wrong foot to me, as it could be construed as purposefully misleading. My hope is that I can show good faith by disclosing this before both parties sign the contract, but by not telling them during the interview I minimize the risk of me being totally ruled out due to my pregnancy (which I know is not supposed to happen but obviously does). As far as maternity leave, I know that I won't be eligible under FMLA, so I am thinking I may have to use some combination of PTO, short term disability, or just have my husband use his unpaid FMLA time to help while I have to go to work (if I only get a few weeks off). In a month or two, once I start really showing (and if I haven't found a job yet), I think I will realistically have to mention it in an interview, just because it'll be noticeable and kind of an 'elephant in the room.' The only other idea I had was to work locums for 2-3 months before my baby comes, so I could save up some money, and get a permanent job after my baby is a few months old, but I've seen most people have discouraged new grads from locums work. Ultimately, I don't want to make any decisions that could impact my new career long term or jeopardize my license, so I'm now leaning against locums work. Any thoughts from other moms who have been through similar issues would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Hello all, I don't have an interview yet, cycle hasn't started, but I would like to hear from those that may have been in my situation. Did anyone interview while (obviously) pregnant and got accepted? If I get an interview, I would probably be 6-7-8 months pregnant (depending on when that would be). That late it will show no matter what I wear. I know legally they are not allowed to ask about it or reject you solely on that reason, but since interview at the PA schools are rather subjective, it's a possibility. Thoughts?
  5. Hi everyone, I am in desperate need of advice regarding how to plan out the next 6 years. In an ideal world, I would attend PA school and get pregnant during the clinical year, take the PANCE, have my first kid, and start looking for my first job when he/she is a couple months old. However, that would put me at having him/her in about 4 years (I would be applying 10 months from now for a June 2019-June 2021 academic cycle), and my fiancé is not willing to wait that long (he is much older than I am), especially because we would like to have 3 kids. The other options include having one or two kids before PA school. I've done the math out (as much as can be estimated about things like this), and going to PA school after the first is born would mean he/she would be about 12 months old when I started. Having two kids before starting the program would mean that they would be about 2 years old and 6-9 months old when I started. These are the only options I feel I have before my prerequisites pass the 10-year expiration point. Any advice on what path you would recommend taking would be GREATLY appreciated.
