Find it very hard to describe exactly - was it logistics only or fear only?
Was very conscious that if I did get pregnant then I would be classed as a medium/high risk pregnancy anyway so if this crisis does last longer than 6 - 8 weeks then you're into hospital appointments/scans etc...
In fairness the maternity system is very good in Ireland (compared to the health system in general) but there will be a huge strain on all parts of the health system in the coming months as it attempts to play catch up on all the procedures that have been cancelled postponed due to COVID19.
I have absolutely no problem with someone becoming pregnant at this time, but for me personally (and this is only me opinion, not anyone else's) I did question whether it would be the most ethical/moral thing to go to the lengths that I am going to (have done several cycles of IVF and looking to do a frozen transfer), at a time when there is such pressure on the health system as a whole.
The other factor for me was the fact as a new illness/infection there is absolutely no evidence bar somewhat anecdotal at best for later in pregnancy in terms of outcomes for either mother or baby.
I would hate for this to be taken as a women shouldn't get pregnant rant - it is not. Women get pregnant all the time including during times of physical stress and hardship such as during famine, war, plagues etc. Otherwise the human race would probably have died out during the first famine it encountered!
This has ended up being a much longer post than I anticipated at first! Hopefully this is just a small delay in the (very bumpy so far) road to motherhood for us!
