Any pregnant women take the covid vaccine? There aren’t many data points on this but was wondering if any of the other ladies know more

I have quite a few pregnant and lactating acquaintances in the military who have received it. No one has reported any immediate side effects apart from the sore arm, tired for a day etc

There are women taking the vaccine but I am not even thinking about it. There have been drugs in the past approved by FDA that proved to be deadly for the babies. I know vaccine is different than a drug but I’m not gonna take risk. If you haven’t had covid, you’ve already got through 9-10 months.

I mean if we can’t even drink herbal tea because they haven’t studied the effects on pregnant women, why would they recommend taking it with no studies to base it off of?

True that

I highly recommend checking out Dr. Marta Perez. She’s an OB with a ton of great info about it.

C1, she does. She’s an OB, new mom, and very evidence- and methodical-based in her approach about the science of it all.

There will never be a study on pregnant or lactating women because it’s unethical. In the same vein that you got a flu shot or tdap it’s because fellow pregnant and lactating women raised their hand and said the benefit outweighs the risk.

Follow dr marta Perez on Instagram and YouTube. She is very evidence based in her approach and why we women need to stand up, volunteer and be given access to medical trials

I’m 22 weeks and my doctor told me that it wasn’t going to be an option for me until after I have the baby. Maybe others have heard differently though!

Also, currently 22 weeks pregnant.

Same question but for breastfeeding women - and does anyone know what the concern is?? I'm so confused

Same philosophy as with pregnant women. There haven’t been studies so there isn’t any data on what effects the vaccine can have o man the baby. Similar to not wanting to take certain medicines while breastfeeding.

Doctor said same thing to me...
but I know pregnant women who are nurses and received it

Doctor says it is currently being offered to pregnant health care workers should they choose to, but there isn’t any data available to support or reject vaccination while pregnant. From a medical perspective, there is nothing to believe a mRNA vaccine will alter the genetics of the fetus, but then there is no data. Apparently, a few women (like 8 or something) who got the pfizer vaccine did not know they were pregnant when they got the first shot. They went on to get the second one, but outcomes of their pregnancies are unknown (because they’re still pregnant). We agreed that given how low risk I am in terms of exposure to the virus, the benefits of getting the vaccine don’t outweigh the risk of the unknowns. She does think the benefits are worth considering though when breastfeeding? I haven’t decided on that yet.

Also my in-laws are healthcare workers who got vaccinated a month ago and are now positive for covid so... 🤷🏻‍♀️ I believe it does help reduce symptoms and hospitalization but given how much is unknown, I would just rather continue to social distancing.

Son’s 2nd birthday coming up.. thinking of opening a custodial account for him and buy a couple hundred dollars worth of a SP500 index fund and continue doing that on subsequent birthdays. Is it a good birthday gift? I understand the drawbacks of a custodial account (losing control once the kid grows up and it affects financial aid etc). I think it will be cool for him to see all the purchase dates fall on his birthdays and teach him about long term investment

I'm done with this app. People are talking about that parents don't have the right to know if their kid wants to be called by a different pronoun and keeping things from parents. Makes me sick. I told them they're all fucked in the head. So I'll be booted soon. Good knowing some of you. Peace.
