I’m just so confused as to how this is even possible. He started coming down with something respiratory while we were in the hospital for delivery. He had been outdoors in the field the entire week before so not sure how this is even possible. We isolated from each other for a full 7 days following. This was very painful because he’s going to be away the entire month of October and deploying in February, he missed all the joy of the first week and 100 percent of the responsibility fell on me. He tested for COVID twice and both came back negative. Horrible cough and stuffy nose.

Then he went back into the field for work at the end of baby’s first week just as his cough was going away. He came back and was still coughing, I assumed this was a continuation of his previous cough and that it was now in the post-viral phase meaning no longer contagious based on what our pediatrician advised. So I moved back into our room and baby and I slept in there until 3:30 am when his cough was keeping me up and we moved back into baby’s room (after I had already washed all the bedding for both rooms in preparation for my mom’s arrival Sunday). This morning I double checked with him that his cough was just a continuation of his post-viral cough from the week before. Nope. He said this is new. WTF??? Why would he allow us to sleep in the same room?? Our baby is TWO WEEKS OLD. I am so upset. I am so terrified she and I will get sick and I’m having visions of her in the ER or coughing and sick. I’m just beside myself. We are isolating now but he was coughing on me all night, he didn’t even turn the other direction. The weird thing is he was again in the field (not indoors with any other people at any time) this past week…although he was smoking while in the field. What could he have possibly gotten?? His cough sounds like he’s going to die.

(And no he won’t go to the doctor, there’s not really any point in going to the military hospital for stuff like this, they’ll give you Tylenol and send you home.)

Update: after all this careful isolation, I now have postnasal drip.

About Community

Discussion of the impact of Corona Virus on the lives and health of pregnant people.
Created Mar 19, 2020





Useful Info

Welcome to Coronabumpers, a sub to discuss and share concerns and resources regarding the ongoing pandemic as it is related to pregnancy, expecting, and haven't recently given birth or adopted a human.

Please check out our rules before posting. In addition to Reddits site wide rules, we ask

  1. Be civil. This is a stressful time for everyone, so please be kind in the comments.

  2. No medical advice.

  3. No spamming, self promotion, trolling, etc. This is not a page for boosting your own blog or posting art pictures of yourself with a 3M mask (especially during a shortage, what are you doing?)

  4. NO DENIALISM. Some people want to be comforted but this is not a place to assuage peoples fears by telling them to chill and not worry. Do not assume peoples medical history to be optimistic. This is a place to discuss risks and safety precautions, people are right to have fear and concern.

  5. No anti-vaxx or anti-science based advice. You are within your right to question policy in place at your local hospital, however this sub is not the place to rally people against hospital rules, regulations, or advice. In addition, no homeopathic advice in lieu of medical treatment or advice from a doctor.

Please be liberal with the report button if you find someone breaking the rules or generally making the atmosphere a bad one.

Volunteers currently needed!

We are looking to create a long stickied post of pregnancy related studies and resources, even city specific. If you have compiled resources of this nature, please share so we can get that ball rolling as we are a baby sub trying to manage. Thank you all for your patience and contributions to the sub while we develop.
