Pregnancy in a pandemic

So this is my first pregnancy I’m currently 36 weeks I will be 37 tomorrow. I didn’t get to experience a lot of what I wanted because of COVID but I did get to take my maternity pictures and I’m so happy about that. Anybody else first pregnancy happen to be during this pandemic?

My gyno said she’ll probably have me quarantine from work at 37 weeks

First baby here! 23 weeks and my husband isn’t allowed to any of my appointments but I’ve been able to video my ultrasounds, it’s still not the same for him.

My doctors wouldn't let me record any of the sonograms or anything like that. My first pregnancy started right before the pandemic hit so he was able to go to the very first one but nothing after that, im now pregnant again and he hasn't been able to be at any of the appointments. Just SO relieved to say he was able to be with me during delivery and recovery. He couldn't leave the hospital and come back though but that was fine with me xD one guy let him pop out for a cigarette once but that was it. No one was able to come visit and i guess that's different but it was my first so i had no idea. My next is due in April and its looking like we'll still be locked down in the same way -_-

They also did let the baby stay in the recovery suite with me she only had to leave for a test and they brought her right back. It may depend on the hospital. And just in case the father isn't able to be there I believe they're allowing one person in general it doesn't have to be the father but that may also depend on the hospital

Yep. My final few months of pregnancy were the first few months of covid. Very stressful.
