I’ve absolutely loved pregnancy, the feeling of growing a child inside of you, and knowing that your body is doing magical things is beautiful. Despite the fact I have been so poorly it hasn’t ever made me regret or doubt the journey that my body has been taken. Within four days of finding out I was pregnant the sickness struck me. We were on holiday at the time and I couldn’t eat anything. Everything made me nauseous and sick. Being sick on the transfer coach, and the plane on take-off was a wonderful highlight!
Now being pregnant and in a global pandemic is certainly not what I expected. However, this is my reality. It’s quite amazing to think we’re making history and I’m one of the super Mamma’s-to-be that managed to deal with and get through such a challenging time in life whilst growing a baby and having to protect them on a whole new level.
The biggest effect the pandemic has had on my pregnancy is that the arrival of the virus landed in the last month of my pregnancy which has been the only month throughout the whole pregnancy that I’ve felt great! No sickness, no dizziness and lots of energy... yet nowhere to go as we’re in lockdown.
