I found this. If anyone is interested they need to read it carefully.
http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6207a4.htm

The review, which the recommendation to offer pregnant women a tdap every pregnancy is based on, says the following.

"Methods
In monthly teleconferences during 2012, the ACIP Pertussis Vaccines Work Group considered published, peer-reviewed literature and unpublished data relevant to vaccinating pregnant women with Tdap. When data were not available, expert opinion was considered. Summaries of the data reviewed and work group discussions were presented to ACIP before recommendations were proposed. The proposed Tdap recommendation for pregnant women was presented at the October 2012 ACIP meeting and approved by ACIP.

Summary of ACIP Deliberations and Rationale"

It then lays out its points - and no where does it discuss fetal/baby safety!

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

Exposures were summed over the time periods of interest. Prenatal exposure was defined as the cumulative ethylmercury amount (in micrograms) of all TCIs received by the mother during her pregnancy with the child."

Sounds like there were 36 mothers in the study who had received thimerosal containing vaccines during pregnancy. Or am I misreading something?
You're misreading. The part you quoted was only talking about the flu vaccine. They also looked at mothers who received other thimerosal-containing vaccines like immunoglobulins, tetanus toxoids, and diphtheria-tetanus.
