    I've had flu shot and will get whooping cough during 3rd tri.
    A quick question though, what's everyone doing about asking family members and other people who visit bubs in the first few weeks to get a whooping cough vac? I'm fine with DH and myself getting one but I'm very uncomfortable about asking other people to get vaccinated just to see our baby! It'd make me feel like the world's most neurotic mother.

    I've had the flu shot and my dr advised getting the whooping cough vaccine in the third trimester, so I could get it now I guess. @misti my DP is having it and I have also told his parents and brother to get it done too. I didn't feel bad at all, the GP recommended they get it done and after everything we have gone through to get our baby I don't feel bad one bit. If you don't like it then don't expect to come around all the time and hold our baby It kills and that's all there is to it!

    I had the flu shot at 5w and will ask my OB re Whooping cough. @misti - I have just asked MIL to have the WC vaccine as she will be the one who is around the baby most out of immediate family, everyone else has jobs and will only see the baby every now and then, not every other day. She was ok with it when I asked, I think because she had Whooping cough when she was little and was very sick.

    I had the WORST stomach pains all yesterday afternoon and through to when I went to bed. It hurt to bend forward and to touch my left side. I think it might have been my organs re-arranging or constipation/indigestion as it was all up high just under my boobs down to above my waist, so I don't think it was BH. I'm going to get some Movicol today just in case to have on hand. I'm glad I woke up and it was gone today.

    Megs... still thinking of you!

    @misti Im glad Im not the only one, I asked my parents to get it as they are staying with us after JJ is born but DH is corcerned about asking his parents/silbings. I dont see the big deal: it can be fatal, clear and simple if your spending alot of time with my baby you will be asked. My inlaws will do it, no question, my parents will fob it off as another "oh she doesnt know what she's talking about"

    Is having to ask people that see the baby to do it a new thing? While it's taken us 12 years of trying and 10 years of ivf to have a baby, once our baby is born I can't imagine it'll be any more precious to me than my fertile friends babies were to them and I've never been asked to have it done before. I even flew down to spend a week with my sister when she had her first, she's a GP and never mentioned it - that was 8 years ago though and about 6 years ago I spent a heap of time with my friend and her premmie twins and was never asked (they were born at 26 weeks Megs and are thriving!)

    @Wishnhope exactly......I don't think there is a big deal at all!!! And I don't think your DH should feel concerned about asking them, surely mostly families wouldn't have a problem with it and from what you say your inlaws sound more willing than your parents! My parents are in the UK so I don't have to worry about them but I have a sister here and I have already asked her if her and her kids have had it and they all have

    @misti yes it is a fairly new request as there has been an epidemic in australia over the past few years. Too many babies dying due to no one being immunised.
    I had whooping cough as a baby it was fairly common 25-30 years ago.
    I wont be asking friends just family.
    @Molros yes my parents will be the battle, everything I do is over the top as my brother and his wife had their baby in April and didnt ask for any of this stuff from my parents. They live in FN Qld and usually fly in around 10pm on the night they arrive and drive straight to our house, I asked them to find accomodation for that night this time (new baby/sleep deprevation etc) and got an icy reception. Im not concerned about upsetting anyone anymore, My child is more important than my parents opinion.

    hehe you sound exactly like me! If no one likes what we decide then tough titties! We are trying to do right by our child and if people can't get their heads around that then bad luck!!! (Does that sound awful?!)

    Thanks wish, that makes me feel heaps better! I haven't been around any babies for the last 5 years (it all got a bit too hard seeing everyone else have kids) so maybe that's why I haven't heard of it. If you've had the vaccination as a child do you have to have it again? I've got nieces who live nearby in their late teens / early 20's but I'm sure they would have had the vac at school.
