I am 33 years old and have never had the chickenpox. I do not have immunity to them, as I was tested when I was pregnant. My midwife at the that time suggested that after I have the baby I vaccinate myself because adult cases can be severe. My doctor told me that I should not vaccinate myself because many people actually get CP from the vaccine and a healthy adult should be fine if they contract CP. My concern is that we are thinking of having another baby and I am concerned that my unvaccinated ds could get CP while I was pregnant. I'm not sure what to do. I definitely will not vaccinate my ds for CP but would be willing to do to myself if I had to. Suggestions? Anyone had this experience??
