When it comes to 2020, Sadie Robertson Huff says her family has had a “wild” year.

“When I look back just at the headlines this year — we found out we had a missing aunt out in the world, there was a shooting at our house, an engagementpregnancies — it’s been crazy,” the 23-year-old told Yahoo this week. “Not to mention it all happening during a global pandemic, which included me getting COVID while pregnant.”

As previously reported by For Every Mom, Sadie first revealed that she and several family members had all tested positive for COVID earlier last month.

“I’m not going to lie, this has been one of the most challenging things,” she wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo from her hospital bed and informing fans that she “ended up getting very sick.”

Sadie, who is now 18 weeks pregnant with her first child, said that COVID on top of her already rough morning sickness made it so that she was not keeping any food down, which is why she was admitted to the hospital.

“I have not had an easy pregnancy,” she admits. “I had COVID really, really bad. I was sick for a solid 12 days, then for about two more weeks.”

Sadie stayed just one day at the hospital where she was given fluids and medication, and doctors checked on her growing baby girl, who brought a redeeming peace to the whole situation.

“It was scary and it was hard, but when we did an ultrasound to make sure she was OK, she was literally dancing,” the excited mom-to-be says. “She was moving all around. She knew what we needed to see. She did great. We were so thankful for that because it was really scary. It definitely has been a wild ride, but there has also been sweetness in the middle of it.”

Sadie says that battling COVID while pregnant helped put her in the “mindset of being a mom,” explaining it was powerful to “know I was kind of going through it with her — even getting through it for her.

The “Whoa, That’s Good” podcaster says the coronavirus swept through the Duck Dynasty clan, but ended with her and hubby, Christian.

“I actually was the last one to get it in the family,” she says. “My sister got it, then my parents, then Christian and I both got it. But then it ended with us. We did not spread it, thankfully. It definitely caught like wildfire for a minute there but we stopped it.”

Following the experience, Sadie has a message for those who aren’t wearing masks and practicing social distancing:

“It is no joke.”

One thing is for sure, the “wild” is just getting started with the Robertson fam. 2021 is already set to bring a wedding, two babies, and a whole lot more from this ever-growing bunch.
