I feel like if I take a year off, then I am basically prolonging the inevitable....I would then go back when they turn 1 and it would still be hard.

eh123 wrote: Honestly like I mentioned before, I hope to get pregnant again and have a second baby some time during 4th year and Im also considering taking a year between graduation and starting residency. My husband and I will be in the process of moving at that point, he will be starting a new job hopefully, and with a new baby AND starting residency that just sounds crazy. So hopefully Ill grab a residency and they will let me defer, or Ill apply a year later.
Im not worried about finding a residency, since like I said I plan on doing GP or peds in Michigan and I will be getting a D.O residency. Michigan is very DO friendly.
