I had mine this week. Decided the benefits trumped the concerns.
28/02/2014 at 14:11
I will have it, same as counter.

I didn't even hesitate to have it. Same with any other vaccines offered to me or my children.

I did have it, mainly for the benefits to LO and then they get a booster in their jabs I think?
28/02/2014 at 14:39
Didn't hesitate. The benefits far outweigh the risks.

Yup I'm booked in next week to have it
28/02/2014 at 14:53
I had it, didn't even think about not having it!

Another that had it. SIL didn't, she came out with bizarre reasons about being against unnecessary vaccinations, then said she doesn't like needles. She will get baby vaccinated when it's born though, so it seems she literally just didn't fancy the needle....
28/02/2014 at 18:37
Didn't occur to me not to have it either given the risks of not taking it!
28/02/2014 at 18:41
Never occured to me not to have it. I never question vaccinations.
28/02/2014 at 20:05
I'll be having it. In fact this thread has reminded me to get on and book myself in, as will be 28weeks soon. Wouldn't occur to me not to have it really, I accept all vaccines I'm offered!

I had it last time and will have it again if it's offered again (not sure if I need it again?). I'm quite pro-vaccinations. I've had the flu jab too and made H get it (he gets it free as we work in a hospital, but I'd have asked him to pay otherwise!), it's no good me being protected against (most) flu if he's then a snivelling wreck!
28/02/2014 at 20:19
I've just realised nobody has even mentioned it to me! As my doctors sent me a letter about being pregnant and the flu jab I figured they'd send a similar one about whooping cough. It's not even occurred to me despite reading posts on the tri thread about people getting it, there's too much in my head at the moment...
I never had it when I was younger (I had all other vaccinations) so I'm a bit wary but probably should still get it done. Should probably read up and get it booked.

I didn't and won't goibg forward. I had a terrible reaction as a child and my doctor ruled that the risk of needing to be treated for a reaction, was higher than the small number of weeks E wasn't jabbed.
28/02/2014 at 21:09
Little Madam, do you mind me asking what sort of reaction you had? Me and my brother didn't have the jab as kids because our aunt (who was closer to our age than my dad!) had a reaction so they worried about us having it despite giving us all the other childhood vaccinations. It's made me a bit wary of it even now.

I had it with S, but it was very late on in my pregnancy as it had only literally come out. No problems apart from an aching arm.

I had mine late, I thibk I was two. But within 5 mins complained of a headache which quickly turned to vomiting/floppy and was a 999 jobbie. My mom thought she'd lost me as I was completely non responsive but after 10 days in hospital I was fine. Chances of it passing between siblings are apparently slim, my brother had it two years later after extensive tests and E also had it at weeks old with no issue. We did however consult a specialist for me and also for my brother and for my E.
