Pregnant in a pandemic. The hospital is eerily quiet. I was told only 50% of staff are in. Most are on rotation – two weeks in and two weeks at home (doing tele-medicine). Still no visitors or family allowed except under exceptional circumstances. Only patients deemed essential can enter. I was greeted by two people in full protective gear and had my temperature screened. I was checked to ensure i was an essential patient (my belly gave that away!). Hand sanitiser is everywhere. Hospital appointments have been scaled back. My next appointment will be via tele-medicine! This appointment went as well as can be expected – at 6ft distance from my ob-gyn and technician. . #pregnant #pregnantinapandemic #pregnantlife #coronavirus #pregnantselfie #babyscan #hashimotosdisease #thyroidhealth #hashimotospregnancy #immunecompromised
