Q: What’s been the most difficult part of being pregnant during at this time?
A: Certainly the unknown. The anxiety of catching it and possibly being separated from my husband (or even isolated) at my birth and worse; separated for my baby for weeks if any of us test positive.
Q: Is there something positive you can take away from this experience?
A: I’m so grateful to have some bonus family quality time with my toddler son before the baby comes. It’s also forced me to take it easy, whereas during my first pregnancy, I worked up until nearly the end and it was a lot.
Q: What’s the best advice you have to offer other pregnant women right now?
A: We’re in this together. It’s okay to be scared/angry/upset and think this whole thing is unfair and the worst time to be pregnant. Just realize the most important thing is that you have a healthy baby after all of this.
