Just wondering what all of your thoughts are on getting the TDaP vaccine during pregnancy. I was completely unaware that they even gave this shot to pregnant women until my OB suggested I get it at my last appointment. I requested time to think about it, research it and talk to the hubs. I haven't really been able to come up with any negative research on getting the vaccine while pregnant, but the thought of it still makes me nervous.
Would it be as effective if I got the vaccine shortly after giving birth? I would have felt a lot more comfortable getting the shot before getting pregnant, but again, had no idea that this was now a recommendation!
I know whooping cough is a serious illness in infants, sooo... obviously, I am leaning towards just getting the vaccine. Just wondering if anyone else had different thoughts and opinions. It's always good to get multiple opinions to see the whole picture!
