I’m back! Got a BFP on a clearblue digital this morning at 10DPO. 4 weeks and 2 days pregnant based on my last period. Super early. I had a miscarriage at 6 weeks exactly a few months ago so as expected I’m feeling very cautious.
This was an intentional pregnancy but even so, I find myself now feeling almost a little guilty because of COVID. My husband still isn’t allowed in the OB office so he will miss the first ultrasound appointment and likely future ones as well. I’m also nervous about potentially putting myself or baby at risk in general. I do work in a medical office so I’m not working from home or anything. Has anyone else grappled with this? I’m definitely excited I think I’m just overall stressed and having conflicting emotions.

Congratulations on your BFP! I was able to Facetime my DH during the dating ultrasound and it was still special for both of us. I live in a hard hit area and my DH will be able to attend most of the scans.
As for feeling guilty, I am not sure what to say. Due to my age I didn’t want to wait TTC and I am glad we didn’t. Babies are born all the time in crazy situations. Take it easy and take care of yourself! Happy and healthy 9 months to you!

Congrats!!! We had an unplanned pregnancy earlier this year and I had a MMC at 12 wks. I also work in health care and the entire time I was pregnant, I was paranoid about COVID. I completely feel for you. Try not to stress. The one thing I regret is worrying about things I could not control and not enjoying the moments more. Allow yourself to day dream, allow yourself to plan ahead and be positive.
We had planned to do a private ultrasound where he could attend to find out the baby’s gender. Near me private utlrasounds run around $75-$200 and they allowed spouses.

Congratulations Bee! Don’t feel bad about Covid – no one knows how long it will be around but luckily more and more experts are starting to suspect very little possibility of any risks for an unborn baby. I can’t imagine all the feelings finding out you’re pregnant again after a miscarriage but I hope you’re able to enjoy this special time! Wishing you all the best and a safe and healthy pregnancy!

Congratulations! I’m 26weeks and all my appointments, ultrasounds have been great because they allowed me to record during so I could share after. It’s been a different experience than my first pregnancy because of COVID for sure, but it’s also been wonderful in many ways- you get all much more 1-1 time with the drs, the DR offices and hospitals have really stepped up their safety and sanitation practices, no more waiting rooms – you get in pretty quickly… And at EVERY drs appt and ultrasound everyone’s wearing a mask. Youve got this. Congrats again!
