    Would you get the vacc before starting to TTC or wait till third trimester to ensure bub has highest possible protection

    Me personally, in hindsight I would go at the beginning of the third trimester.

    Great idea getting it done. I was meant to get it done during my 37th week, but bub came before my appointment and I was too busy earlier and didn't get it done on time (not a good excuse). I had it done instead when he was about 10 days old but I was kicking myself that I didn't get it in sooner, because he wasn't as protected from breastmilk as he would've been had I had it while he was in utero.

    No side effects here, except maybe a little bit of a sore arm.

    No side effects so far. Not even a sore arm although it did hurt getting it done but not too bad. I still cant believe my parents are refusing as they are not only.putting my baby, their grandchild at risk, but all bubs they come into contact with. My personal opinion is that they are very selfish but oh well.. I ll stick to my decision and not allow them near bub until two wks after bubs vaccines as it takes two weeks to develop immunity. I m lucky to have sensible inlaws who are having their shots tommorrow. Now hopefully this bub stays in for another two weeks to benefit from it but I read that even if you have shots a week before bubs birth there is a 91% protection.

    Subbing. I'm keen to get it done but worried about any side effects.

    The idea of giving in the third trimester is as you create high levels of antibodies after vaccination you transfer them to bub.
    If you get it pre pregnancy your levels although therapeutic won't be as has as just after vaccination

    That's really good to know! Thank you.

    I'm glad to see Victoria is now offering free boosters to parents to be.

    After a whooping cough scare from my boss recently (he tested positive to it just after I got my BFP )

    As a precaution I went to my GP he informed me that In Queensland they offer a free booster to all pregnant women after 28 weeks.
    I fully intended to get it as will DH and my parents (we all share a house)

    While it might sound hardcore I fully intend to tell all family/friends that we won't take any visitors that have not had their booster.

    After 8 rounds of IVF to get here
    I'm just not prepared to take that risk for my babies no matter who they are...

    Yep absolutely. And not just for the first six weeks, it takes bubs a few shots to build up immunity.
