    I’m pregnant and waiting for my vaccinated life to begin


    When I first saw the plus sign on my pregnancy test this March, I was not thinking about the coronavirus. 

    I was jumping up and down, shouting for my husband to wake up, disturbing our dog and taking pictures. We Googled a due date calendar and discovered our bundle of joy should be arriving in late November. That date felt like eons away, and perhaps, like the time things would be close to normal again. We were tired but persevering, a year into quarantining and mitigation measures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    I had recently become eligible for the vaccine and had an appointment scheduled for the following week. All signs pointed to availability to all adults in April. My husband and I started dreaming big. What if, we wondered, we could have a baby shower in person? What if I never had to introduce my child to the fear that had dominated my life since I first heard the words “social distancing”?
