Has anyone had covid while pregnant before? I think I might have it and I'm panicking a bit. I am fully vaccinated at least, but I made the mistake of googling the risks.

I’m also a fan of dresses, if you’re into those! But might be best to just give a few things a try and see what feels comfortable to you.
Anyway, it makes me extra glad to have a space to vent with other expectant moms, because most people seem less interested in hearing me whine in person now. Lol.
I’m not even announcing publicly or to anyone who won’t see my belly. Just going to shock people with a tiny human in tow this holiday season 🤣 how’s that for excitement.
@mckenzc I did! The nitrous wasn’t great at pain relief per-se, but it did offer enough of a distraction that it helped me to get through the most extreme contractions. It’s nice to have as another option in your toolkit. But just know that it won’t exactly lessen the pain. It was like being really high, but still feeling everything.
I’m leaning towards getting a walking epidural this time though. I just think I need the rest! The first time took everything out of me.
I've had plenty of friends not bump out until after twenty weeks with their first. I think the average is probably by 16 weeks based off people I know.
Pack and play or bassinet?? Planning on newborn sleeping in our room for the first few months rather than the crib…but in what? FTM here, 12 weeks and starting to look at registry-type things, and man is there a lot out there. 😅
yes! I had a positive Covid test the same weekend as a positive pregnancy test 🤣 I feel like if there was going to be a vulnerable time, it’s right there at implantation. I truly wasn’t worried about any of it except getting a high fever which never happened! Just felt achy/congested for 2 days.
@merostomata Rapid test was negative last night, but I know it's been going around my work so I'm presuming I tested too early. I've requested a PCR test appointment to confirm since those are more reliable.
@bows22 Yes, I am in Canada. I'll ask my midwife about that!
It is an internal issue though. I like affirmations and following body-positive accounts, or focusing on what I like about my body as it is (e.g. growing a human is frickin amazing and my body is doing a great job, or physically, having big boobs is kind of cool). And just talking about it with friends and your partner. You are not alone and women have felt like this for ages.
