So I got my last TDAP about a year ago (maybe even less), & had a really bad reaction that my doctor & I had to report to VAERS. My arm would not stop hurting, & I couldn't even lift it above shoulder level (so had a hard time even getting dressed!) for a whole month. We still don't really know why I reacted that way or if it was just some kind of weird fluke. Well anyway, knowing that my body may potentially have a weird reaction if I get it again, I just don't feel comfortable getting it during the pregnancy, but my question is, should I get it again right after baby is born? I might be willing to risk it at that point, since any reaction I have would not affect baby, & the main thing is I just want baby to be protected, but I'm also not sure if it's really necessary for me to do it again if it's only been a year since I had it last? I would still be a little scared, but willing to try it, but I guess I'm just not really sure if it's actually necessary or if my body should still have the immunity at this point. My doctor is leaving it up to me, so I'm curious to hear any thoughts you guys have.
