I do not get shots myself. Mostly because the one they want you to get is the flu. Every time I get the flu shot, i get the flu, so I just skip it.

I got the flu shot, but not the DTaP until right after he was born. DH and I both got it before leaving the hospital.



I did get the genetic testing (they didn't call for amnio since testing was negative for defects, but I would have declined). We decided that if DS had any defects, that we would want to research everything about it before he was here. It wouldn't have changed our decisions about it and he would still be very loved, but we would want to be completely informed.

If you get a vaccine while pregnant, it will give the baby some protection too.
Edit: Thats part of the reason they recommend the flu shot to pregnant women. That and pregnant women are more immunocompromised than when they are not pregnant.

Yea, it sucked big time & I was really worried about DD. Then when I was like 36 weeks pregnant, I went in for my check up with the doctor & they did an ultrasound every time, well my fluid was VERY low. They were talking about inducing me that day because of how low it was, well they had me stay in the hospital for a few days & pumped me full of tons of IV fluids & luckily her fluid levels went back up so they sent me home & I didn't need to be induced any sooner than was planned.

I think it's BS, I totally got sick from it. I rarely get sick anyway. Idk I don't like that it has a higher rate of side effects than some other vaccines out there :?



That sucks though, omg :(
