My doc actually tested my immunity to these things at my pre-conception appointment but honestly, not everyone goes to one of those. I would have had no clue! Good info to share!

I’m seeing an RE today (UK time, I’m an insomniac) so I had to have a load of tests done before I see him. No longer immune to Rubella. I’m going to talk to him about it. Thanks for the PSA! 

My cousin got mumps at the age of 38 and it was brutal. I don’t think everyone is aware that the jabs only last for a certain number of years. I had to read up on it and felt really dumb.

What the heck, I even had a preconception visit with my new OBGYN place and they didn’t say anything about this.  Shoulda known that you would be a better source of information than just some random OBGYN. 

And thanks to all the anti-vaxxer crazies, this is something that people actually have to worry about again….

Never heard of this, either way sounds like good info to pass on!

Ugh, I feel for you. I was immunized as a child and just figured all was well. Never knew it wore off. OB never mentioned it either! Then it came up in my RE blood workup and she would not proceed unless I got revaccinated. That was definitely an agonizing cycle bc you just want to start!!!

Great advice! With both of my pregnancies, my docs had me tested for immunity to rubella at my intake appointment…you know, AFTER I was already pregnant. Thanks a lot, docs….

Great Public Service Announcement lady! Thank you. I’ll have to remember this if we decide to try for another. 

Is it advised to get it every time you’re TTC since pos/neg might not mean a whole lot?

MsPlucky : why did you get a TDAP booster pre pregnancy? You’re supposed to get it WHILE pregnant to give some immunity to the baby since whooping cough is deadly for infants (and making a comeback).
