If you are pregnant, are you getting the COVID vaccine?

I work in a high risk profession and am 22 weeks pregnant. I came out of quarantine last week after being diagnosed with Covid … I won’t be getting the vaccine. My coworkers had worse side effects from their second injections than I did having covid. And I am very much pro vaccine!

I got pregnant weeks before COVID confirm and things started shutting down. When thought my whole pregnancy with my rainbow baby and didn’t get COVID. My doctor said if I didn’t it would go to the baby anyways. I am hoping to have our last in the next few months and I will not be getting the shot. Not enough time or test done on it to tell if it has side effects to Conceiving a baby after the shot or long term in life.

I’ve gone back and forth. I work in a hospital and we take care of Covid patients so I’m fairly exposed to it. I’m 28 weeks now and I think I’m going to just wait to get it until after she’s born. My co workers try to keep me away from Covid positive patients which I appreciate. It’s a hard decision. If you were to get Covid while pregnant you’re chances of it being more serious go up, but you also have to think about taking a new vaccine and what kind of side effects that could possibly have on a developing baby. Very hard decision.

Playing devils advocate. I was 34 weeks pregnant when I got mine. I’m perfectly fine, baby is perfectly fine. I’ve also had growth scans every 4 weeks due to also having covid. The unknown is scary, but giving my tiny human every chance to be somewhat immune to this nasty virus is what I aimed for. It was a hard decision but I don’t regret it at all. I also work with children who can’t get the vaccine so knowing I’m protecting them as well was a no brainer.

I’m never getting that vaccine. Period! And my kids won’t either.

I know someone who was 38 weeks pregnant and 24 hours later she lost her baby. Not sure if the vaccine was the factor but I wouldn’t risk it. Not enough tests were run to determine the effects.

Don’t vaccinate a pregnant cat/dog, etc
But vaccinate a pregnant woman🙄

23 weeks pregnant and I am a bedside nurse (not the covid unit though). I declined it.

Nope. It’s not an actual vaccine. It’s literally just chromosomes and acid. That’s coming from the many drs I work with at a hospital. It doesn’t prevent covid, it just weakens the symptoms IF you get it. And it’s also not FDA approved. So there’s that

I’m almost 29 weeks and my obgyn (well one from the same practice told me I should get it) I declined it as well. I’m just not comfortable with the unknowns.

Not enough research has been done on the covid vaccine, especially in pregnant woman. Why would you think twice about getting it while pregnant?

I was told by my doctor that the vaccine is NOT recommended for pregnant or nursing mothers. I haven’t gotten it nor will I

I seen a post where people getting it caused them to have a miscarriage. I’d wait till after

My OBGYN literally told me no they have no idea what it will do the unborn child and I’m 21 weeks, I have already read where others lost their babies within days of getting of it

I had covid while pregnant, got my first vaccine 2 weeks ago and just delivered 2 days ago. The only side effect I had was a sore arm.

The clinical studies on how the vaccine affects pregnant women just started. They dont have any information on how it affects pregnant women. CDC or anyone else, they all say they dont have enough information on it. I wouldn’t personalky want to be oart if an experiment. If they dont know, how can I be sure its safe ya know? Do your research. Talk with numerous doctors. Make an educated decision that you are confident in.

When the measles vaccine came out my grandmother didnt know she was pregnant yet, got the vaccine, had to terminate the pregnancy due to malformation. Her baby was not developing properly and woukdnt have survived. Not the same vaccine but a very similar situation.

It was brought up at my last appointment by my ob and his exact words were “I am going to strongly encourage you to get vaccinated if you have the chance.” I turned it down and will continue to do so. Maybe in the far future I will but not right now and especially not with my child inside me. I feel there’s not enough information on how it could affect pregnant women and their unborn baby.
