After years of false pregnancy speculation, the 24-year-old singer confessed – “This time I am pregnant. It’s weird!”. Five months along, Pullins described her pregnancy journey as “really easy” so far.

The Challenges of Being Pregnant During COVID-19

However, Pullins admitted to one major difficulty – managing prenatal doctor visits during the coronavirus pandemic. Initially, she thought lockdowns would help conceal her pregnancy longer if desired.

She soon realized the downsides, of having to attend every appointment alone without her partner by her side.

“It sucks being pregnant during the coronavirus,” “At first, I’m like, ‘This is the perfect time, like everybody is locked in. I don’t have to worry about going out. So if I want to hide it for however long, I can hide.’ “

she says.

“But when it comes to going to doctor’s appointments, I go to all of them by myself. I ask every single time, ‘Can I bring my boyfriend?’ And they’re like, ‘No, only you can come,’ ” 

Pullins continues.

“That’s been the worst part,” “I’m hoping by the time I’m ready to have the baby it will be over with. But I’m sure it won’t be, so I’ll be in there with one person, most likely. I’m just trying not to get my hopes too high anymore.”

she adds.

Pullins also confessed the toughest aspects she didn’t anticipate

“The most difficult part is not being able to move around freely. I never thought about how I can’t just go get my nails done or even shower when I want to. I’ve got to make sure my baby is okay first…I don’t take long showers anymore. She wakes up early so I don’t get to sleep in. Getting used to all those changes is difficult.”
