I'm also wary of going to the hospital for any reason, but the risk of catching other things in a hospital has always been there. Fortunately, awareness is high, and as a result maybe you are slightly more likely to catch COVID and much less likely to catch anything else?

There will be more clarity in the coming weeks regarding COVID and pregnancy. I wouldn't automatically take the unknown as a bad thing. I would want to be with my partner though.
