Taking the semester off- opinions?


My due date is set for November 16th, which is right in the middle of my college semester. Personally, I want to take this semester off, and quite possibly the one following it to be with my baby. My family on the other hand, thinks I should stay actively enrolled for fear that I will never go back. I am an adult and responsible for my own decisions, but I do value my family's input. Has anyone else dealt with this? Should I take the semesters off or just bite the bullet and stay actively enrolled?
