Am 32 weeks and been feeling more and more relaxed about Covid but was wondering if there's anyone out there who has definitely had it while pregnant and if so what was it like? Sorry if this has been done before

I had symptoms at 35 weeks and so did my son but no idea if I had it. If you are on Facebook Join "the covid 19 baby parents group". People from allover the world and many have tested positive

Hello OP. I’m currently 21 weeks pregnant and got a positive Covid test result on 26 August. I don’t know how I caught it because I’m immunosuppressed so have been super careful. I think I must have been unlucky at the supermarket or at Pilates.

I was very lucky that I had it quite mildly. I had a cough, sinus pain, body aches and really bad eye pain and headaches. For me it was like flu. I didn’t have shortness of breath. I’m almost fully recovered, just still missing my taste and smell which is super annoying!

I obviously had to miss my 20 week scan but it’s been rescheduled for 2 weeks’ time. Hopefully it won’t have harmed the baby as I didn’t have a high fever for very long.
