← Return to Trying to Conceive, Pregnancy and COVID-19

We have been trying to conceive (our 2nd) and though we are not at the point of IVF yet, we have been on medication. Since everything else has been in "stand-by mode" we decided to put trying to conceive on hold too when all of this started. But as time goes on that is becoming harder for me. I am anxious to start trying again (as you all know, time is precious) but I'm also fearful of being pregnant during a pandemic. *sigh*
Anyone else?

@randiapr, I can understand both your decision to put trying to conceive on hold and feeling the pressure of time. How long is one prepared to wait when time ticks, right? I gave birth at the height of SARS in the city that was the epi-center. It was scary for sure, but I had full confidence in the safety protocols followed by the hospital. The isolation at home turned out to be a silver lining and allowed our little family of three to bond without obligations of hosting visitors (or germs).

I'm tagging @loren12 @phoenixzip @paddingtonk and @bl2018 on this discussion to see if their plans to try have changed as COVID protocols become a part of life and what it's like to be expecting with all this.

Randi, how do you feel about going into a medical facility at this time? Are you thinking of starting to try again?
