When most pregnant women go into labor, the last thing on their minds is how much work or studying they have to do. But one mom and college student is blowing people away with her dedication after she posted a photo of herself on Twitter completing her last college final for the semester ... while she was in the hospital, about to give birth to her son.

  • Nayzia Thomas, a sophomore at Johnson Community College in Kansas City, MO took to Twitter to share the miraculous circumstances of the birth of her son.

    When Nayzia found out she was pregnant she was already working 3 jobs and going to summer classes.  “School is so important to me,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I didn’t want [the pregnancy] to be in the way. That’s what people expect. You’re a teen mom, you’re a young mother. That’s why my mom took that picture. It shows [I] follow through.”

    "My mom took this pic & it's the perfect explanation of my life," Thomas writes on Twitter, "Yes I'm about to have a baby, but final SZN [season] ain't over yet."

  • According to Yahoo Lifestyle, the Psychology student stayed in school until she was 39 weeks pregnant and was hoping to have her baby before her finals.

    Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle, Thomas explains that, "[My final psych exam] wasn’t due until the end of the week — finals week is Dec. 11 to [the 15th]— but my goal was to try to have everything done before. [I thought] ‘before all this gets crazy let me hurry up and finish this final.’” 

    But of course, her son came when he was ready, so on December 12th, Nayzia went into labor. And rather than take an "incomplete" for the course, Thomas pushed through and ended her semester with a 3.5 GPA.

  • The photo has generated over 27,000 retweets and 130,000 likes, with some commenters on Twitter calling her a "Bad b*tch".

  • This user could not get over how good Thomas looked while she slayed both her labor and her finals.

     "To be pregnant during finals and still slayyyyyyyyyyyy you hair....I'm amazed," she wrote.

  • And this Twitter user even shared a picture of her child, born just before her own finals.

    "I def understand," she wrote.

  • People could not get over Thomas's work-ethic. To be a hard worker is one thing, but to ace school and give birth at the same time? Damn.

    And not only that, Thomas plans on taking care of her new son during her winter break and tells Yahoo Lifestyle that she will return to school as planned in January.

  • We are seriously impressed, we have nothing, but admiration for this icon of womankind.
