Anyone vaccinate baby with mmr while pregnant with second?

My son is due for his mmr and chicken pox vaccine on monday and I am 11 weeks pregnant.  I have heard that because these vaccines are live that the baby will shed the live virus for up to a month.  This of course has me nervous as I do not want that affecting my fetus.  Has anyone vaccinated their first while pregnant with the second and everything was fine?
