So I know that this pandemic has caused stress for a lot of people. I personally have been taking all precautions when I have to leave the house but have been mainly staying home. I wanted to know for all the ladies who have already gone through pregnancy during this time, or are currently going through it, how stressful has it been for you?
I’ve never been pregnant but my husband and I would like to start trying soon, but I’m unsure if maybe we should wait till all of this calms down some? I have T1D, Hashimoto’s, and asthma, so it’s scary to me even not being pregnant. I know the virus isn’t bad for all, and most cases are mild but I don’t know if the risk is too high to add the pregnancy on top of everything.
I also know that once COVID passes, something else might pop up so I’m wondering if it’s worth waiting after all? I’d just like to hear everyone’s experiences so far! And if you’ve had the virus how was your experience with that as well?
I have read a lot about husbands not being able to go into ultrasound or doctor appointments during this time, and to me that’s heartbreaking. This will be my first pregnancy and I can’t imagine not having my husband with me. But also, just the fear of getting the virus during or after pregnancy, because I imagine it’s going to be stressful enough just being a T1D.
Any advice or experiences would be greatly appreciated! I hate that I’m such a planner at heart, but I hate going into the literal, unknown, with more unknowns. lol
