<p>First off - I want to start by saying that these forums were a really great resource when I did my own research whether or not to vax my child.  We decided against vaxing and I feel comfortable enough to defend my choice to doctors and nosy relatives. </p>
<p>So I'm hoping people have some advice about vaccinating PRIOR to pregnancy. My TTC friend wasn't vaxed.  The doctor tested her antibodies and wants her vaxed against rubella - saying it causes birth defects.</p>
<p>If she does get pregnant, are there any side effects/warnings/dangers/etc. for being vaccinated?  There's a lot of info on flu shots for adults and kids shots, but I'm at a loss here...Anyone?</p>

<p>Rubella and Pertussis were two vaccines I wanted to make sure I got before becomming pregnant. Even though I do vaccinate my children we delay them and don't do all of them so I feel much more comfortable getting the vaccine for myself as an adult than for a very young baby.</p>
