zstbee84 :  I understand all of that.  I’m saying that five people very close to me, myself included, had complications so severe from either pregnancy or miscarriage that they literally would have died without hospitalization and complicated intervention.  Not probably.  Definitely would have DIED.  Like 100% chance DEAD.  I am talking about women dying here.  I understand the concern about timing and delay and money invested.  I get that.  But I, personally, don’t want to see reports of pregnant women dying.  We need to do a reality check here.

zstbee84 :  please don’t despair.  There are already two different vaccines in the trial stage right now, one in Seattle and one in Germany.  A year max to get a vaccine through trials and approvals, however, I read some anticipation of any vaccine performing well in early trials may get streamlined with fewer hoops to jump through for sooner availability.  I don’t think it will be a full year before an effective vaccine puts this to rest.  And outbreaks may curb and subside without a vaccine.  Let’s all play it by ear.  It really is possible that this could wind down within the next few months.  That it might be longer is something we have to consider, but things are wind ing down in China and Japan.  Let’s look to that for hope.

zstbee84 :  I feel you. I’m impatient as hell, so if I were in your shoes I’d be struggling too. At the same time, I’m nearly 18 weeks and I’m so nervous. My aunt was flying in to join my mom, my husband, and me for my anatomy scan in a few weeks, but that’s likely not possible or safe now. That’s the least of my concerns though. My husband’s job could be at risk with all of this, so worried about supporting a newborn with just my salary. Worried I might get it and pass it to my unborn baby. Worried they won’t allow my husband in the delivery room with me if this doesn’t subside by August. I’m scared to leave my house, yet my husband has to still report to work, so I worry that he’ll bring the virus home even with my precautions. 

Scary times.
