My Mom: "We are going to have to cancel the baby shower"
Me: "Now hear me out... have you ever seen the movie Bubble Boy?"
Being pregnant is hard. But holy cow, being pregnant during a worldwide pandemic is another level hard. Today marks 27 weeks for me with my second baby and boy did I feel like life was so unfair when this all began to unfold. Helpless, yes. Scared for my baby and I, yes. Anxious for all the right reasons, yes. Everyday is a big fat question mark for some of us. Will I get to have my husband or support partner with me when I deliver? Am I going to reschedule that baby shower I was so excited to celebrate this new life with family and friends? Will there be enough diapers and wipes for me when this baby is born? Are my parents and in laws going to be able to help once I deliver? I’ve always been a pretty laid back, roll with whatever life brings me kind of gal, but this whole crisis has my head and heart feeling absolutely SCARED.
