I got Covid at 20 weeks. I just stayed home and hydrated and rested a lot. Up your water and vitamins intake. My gynae said there’s no cause for concern for baby unless I am breathless or have very high fever. She also advised that regular flu meds and paracetamol is safe to take but I avoided it as my symptoms were fairly mild. Am now 30 weeks, had 3 scans since and baby is growing well and thriving. Covid doesn’t affect your bubs and in fact gives bubs extra antibodies

Noted. Good to hear that. I feel much relieved.🥹


I am 30 weeks now and Day 6 Covid +ve. Up your Vitamin C intake, stay hydrated. I had fever, flu and cough so I just took the meds dr gave during the first 3 days cos it was the worse. Now im recovering slowly so i no longer take the meds. Still coughing so I take warm honey water.
