It's very nasty beebs, would not wish that on anyone. I've had it so bad, i could only imagine how horrific it would be for a small baby. My littlest has been coughing till he vomits a fair bit, the middle one coughs till he's absolutely red in the face exhausted from coughing. It really is not something anyone would want to get. This idiot woman saying it's a 'breeze' should experience it so it might change her mind!

I had whopping couch 3 years ago and ended up with pneumonia in both lungs. I was so ill, I had that cough for 9 months, nothing would get rid of it. It was so exhausting and so awful gasping for breath between coughing I just can't imagine how hard it would be for a little baby.
Anyone who takes it so lightly is just a complete idiot, it would be so heartbreaking to watch your child have it. Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

I'm so sorry to hear how unwell you've been :hug:
We're very pro vax here and even I had a few doubts when our Bub got her vaccinations (she handled them very well and was absolutely fine). I can only imagine how hard it was for you. I've heard Sydney is on the verge of a measles outbreak (there were signs up when we went to Westmead children's hospital a few months ago), so it really is better to be as protected as possible

Thanks anewme xx
CG - Wow 9 months!! Noooooo i'm so super over it, it's wretched, haven't been able to drive, i ended up having the principal of the school drive me and the kids home last week as i was so ill with pnumonia and fractured ribs (that i didn't know about) and was all dizzy and lightheaded, it was so frightening and embarrassing, so now the school have arranged people to take my kids to school for me for the next 2 weeks, it's utterly miserable not being able to take them to school and do my normal things, plus we're going overseas in less then 3 weeks, i'm devo at the timing of it, but just have to suck it up i guess.

Amiedoll yeah that is a concern too, there were several cases going around school many kids have got it, most were vaccinated but still by the time it's detected it's already spread and most doctors just sent us away saying it's just a viral cough it'll go away in a few weeks!

Yeah, before I became staunchly pro vaccination, I had a few shockers, rubella when pregnant, whooping cough whilst travelling overseas, the next year chickenpox while travelling overseas again. It absolutely changed my mind completely about vaccinations.
With the WC - I was misdiagnosed and told it was a chesty cough, so I was I was on planes, on tubes, on buses, travelling to different countries and spreading it around. vomitting after every bout in public, turning purple, blood vessels in my eyes bursting. I had it for 3 months and felt like I was going to die.
