Not a consideration at all. I was working in a hospital as an RN while I was pg with DD1 and did get it. I also did the 28 wk Rhogam, and DD1 received a couple two month vaxs where she suffered a vax reaction. She is now a SN child, and my mind always goes back to the vaxs that she got and I got while I was pg with her. I don't know what she would of been like without any vaxs, but I do know, that as sensitive as a child she is (she reacts to everything), they didn't help her.
I haven't had influenza while pg but did get it with a newborn along with pertussis that same winter. Wanna talk about one LONG winter!
I also have choosen not to receive Rhogam again. For the poster that was asking, it is not mandatory. Read Sara Wickham's "Anti-D in Midwifery" for more info.
Jen, I'm sorry for your loss.
I can imagine that after what you have been through, you want to do everything possible to protect this baby, and often our mind runs straight to diseases and vaxs. I do understand, while I didn't lose DD2, I spent months fighting with her to even just thrive. She contracted pertussis at 2 wks old, I could of lost her so easily. She was O2 dependent until she was 7 months old, and almost 2 years later, still has lingering effects. I will admit that the thought of having a newborn again terrifies me, I never ever want to go through anything resembling that again. But then I have to get rational and go through my family's history and my beliefs, and know that there is nothing magical I can do to prevent that, which sucks sometimes!
Good luck with your decision, these ones are never easy.
