amanda1988 :  I knew but never thought to mention it. I was revaccinated a few months before we started TTC for chicken pox but I did have Rubella when I was younger so I think that kind of means I am good? I did my titers.

Just wanted to chime and say get checked! I was vaccinated as a child but my titres were low meaning my immunity had effectively “worn-off”. We didn’t find this out till I was already pregnant which meant I spent the first 20 weeks of my pregnancy basically on lock-down. Though rubella is pretty rare where I live, the increase in anti-vaxxers means that there was a chance I would come into contact with people who were carrying it and so my doctor had me off work and at home with orders to avoid public places, transit, or any where there might be crowds. It was a real pain!
