Just remember that there is a 99% chance that you're going to have a bit of a cold and feel fine. Most people who get COVID aren't on the internet telling people about it, but people who experience loss are, making what you read online seem really disproportionate to the reality of the situation, so keep that in mind. Other than this, get onto whatever meds your doctor is prescribing as soon as you can, and chill out and take it easy.
We managed to stay negative through our whole pregnancy. However, we are all positive and our 4 week old. It is never good timingI tested positive for Covid today. Woke up with a temperature. My wife has also been sick, she’s pregnant. Due end August. I am absolutely shattered and terrified.

You will get through it
As I am sure you have heard, children and babies are quite resilient. It was stressful, but luckily it was nothing more than a mild fever and congestion.Ah no, so sorry to hear. How is the baby doing?
Timing is proper sh|t but thank you for the words of support. I’m remaining positive (as in mentally lol).

This virus has to be stressful, the whole world is talking about it for nearly 2 years
From my limited understanding, it seems that the damage covid does to lungs makes it very easy for an opportunistic bacterial infection to gain a foothold.
I was given a script from a well-intending friend from a friend doctor, it contained a whole lot of things, ivermectin, antibiotics, blood-thinners, cortezone etc.I heard you can also get given antibiotics that help with Covid
I was really tempted to take the Ivermectin. Really glad I didn't. So many of the sisters and doctors told me that if someone comes to ICU or High care or MICU - they can be helped. But most who have taken ivermectin cannot. I didn't take it because when my little bro had covid - he did. And he had a really bad reaction to it. So I figured the possibility was high that I might too.I was given a script from a well-intending friend from a friend doctor, it contained a whole lot of things, ivermectin, antibiotics, blood-thinners, cortezone etc.
I said, what the hell are these doctors prescribing, I'm going to die from the meds and not the virus. It's not a one size fits all, and it's all about taking the right things at the right time. I'm first going to give my body a chance to fight on its own, if things go tits up then I will begin using these meds in consultation with my GP, who knows my medical history.
Some doctors appear to use the shotgun strategy, I don't think they have a game plan.
So daughters test came back positive. Quite surprised and a little shocked if I'm being honest...
That sucks! But you young and fit and so is your wife! Should be okay. Important to monitor your oxygen levels.Sorry to hear about your daughter. Hope she’s doing ok. I tested positive today and my wife will most likely test positive tomorrow. Scares me because our baby is due 26th August.
If that's the case, you'll probably be fine. If you develop a runny nose, cough or post nasal drip, keep spitting everything out and blowing your nose. This will delay the spread from your nasal cavity to your lungs as much as possible.Thanks man, appreciate the words. Yup I’v already started the meds. The only symptom I have so far is a high temp. Otherwise I feel fine. I get a bit of a chill every now and again.
