I’m in a bumper group where several women have received their vaccines at all stages of pregnancy and seem to be very fine. A lot of them are frontline healthcare workers. If offered, I would probably decline (37+4 right now and getting induced next week). I literally go nowhere. Post birth, however, I will definitely get it while breastfeeding without hesitation.

I’m 27 weeks (2nd baby) and going to get it! My OBGYN and my daughter’s pediatrician both recommended it. My SIL is also a doctor and she recommended I get it. I work from home and have little to no exposure and they all still recommended it. My husband and I have talked about it a lot and wanted to make the decision together. But he doesn’t feel GREAT about there being no definitive “answer,” so he basically said your body, your call. I feel good about my decision, but understand that it’s a tough one!!!

My sister and best friend are both pregnant and doctors, so they chose to be vaccinated. No side effects.

18 weeks and will be getting it when offered. My reasoning: 1. I have a minor heart condition and I fear the long term damage that could be caused from getting covid. 2. My husbands family thinks the virus is fake and is going to insist on trying to see my baby-good luck to them. But they are potentially exposing me, husb, and my baby. My family is extremely conservative (lost my uncle to the virus) and with everyone wanting to see the baby I’m not going to risk being the one to be the pass through and transfer to my family who takes the necessary precautions. 3. I trust in the data and research that I have read about the vaccine development process, the trials, and how other vaccines affect pregnant women. 4. By the time I’m offered the vaccine, all of the pregnant healthcare workers who were vaccinated will have shown the effects of the vaccine. It’s an unofficial trial. 5. The risk of COVID long term effect outweighs the risk of the vaccine on me and baby. All just my personal opinions.

I’m 38 weeks and would 100% get it if I could right now to protect myself, the baby, and my elderly family members when they visit the baby, but pregnant women aren’t eligible yet in my state. Where I live as soon as I have the baby I will drop way down in the priority list. Right now it’s looking like I won’t be able to get the vaccine until the end 2021.

Friend of mine got Moderna’s at 34 and 37 weeks - no side effects, doing great. I’m pretty sure I’ll get it when I’m that far!

Interesting!! Asked my doc and she said there are no studies on preggos yet so it’s not recommended. In her view they’ll have to do animal testing and see if any longer term side effects before it’s deemed safe. She did mention there were 20-30 women in trials who didn’t know they were preggo and had vaccine and so far no ill effects but too few to draw a conclusion from yet. I’m 27 weeks and not eligible in NY yet but at this point would pass until more is known, baby is borne, etc.

I'm 27 weeks and my doc and I have agreed that if I get access to the vaccine that I should get it. Vaccine shouldn't interact with the baby at all, and it's better for pregnant people to not get Covid if at all possible.

In my 3rd tri and would 100% get it if it were available to me right now. Both my OBGYN and ped said I should if I somehow could. They are both evidence based doctors.

I haven’t but a woman I work with is 27 weeks and she got her first dose two weeks ago. No side effects.

How do you know if there are no side effects if you haven’t had your baby yet? What it they are born with defects or have mental / developmental delays a few years out, only then will you able to potentially trace it back to a fast track vaccine from 2021?

True! Preliminary data I’ve seen from animal models getting vaccinated while pregnant showed no problem with any of their babies

I’m passing on the vaccine. There is not enough research to know how it could affect me or the baby later. I’ll take my chances without it.

Pregnant and don’t think it’s an option for me but I will not be getting it while pregnant (although I am in third trimester so maybe I’d feel differently if earlier?)

If you are trying to conceive is it recommended? I feel like it will be awhile til I am eligible though

Follow-up question, had anybody read whether the covid vaccinations give you better antibody transfer to the baby? I read that the antibody transfer from a natural infection is very low, but if the vaccine leads to a good one, that would be a reason to get the vaccine, in my eyes.

A study was just published this week that shows about 78% of pregnant women who had COVID during pregnancy passed on some antibodies to their babies - higher instance depending on severity of the infection. It’s unknown if the vaccine will do the same, but they do know the vaccine produces a stronger immune response than a natural infection so hopefully the same effect is seen in the vaccine. Here’s a link to the study for more details: https://www.ajog.org/article/S0002-9378(21)00053-3/fulltext?dgcid=raven_jbs_aip_email

I haven't but I want to get it! In Canada and likely won't be in line until summer-- after baby is born.

I got my first dose at 29 weeks and will get my second dose tomorrow at 33 weeks. My doctor recommended I get the vaccine based on the expected impact to the baby (none, based on scientific theory, since the vaccine doesn’t cross the placenta) vs. the risk to me and the baby if I were to get COVID. After the first dose my only side effect was soreness at the injection site. Based on what I’ve seen others go through, I’m expecting a stronger reaction to tomorrow’s dose (my in laws said they had flu like symptoms for 24 hours). My doctor said any reaction I have to the second dose won’t put my baby at risk, and that if I get a mild fever I can control it with Tylenol.

@Deloitte 1, if you’re in North Texas, I’d recommend signing up through all of the county websites. I was on the waitlists for Tarrant, Collin, Dallas, and Denton counties. UTSW also just opened a link so you can sign up for vaccination appts with them even if you’re not a patient.

Serious question. I started developing symptoms of covid last Friday. This included fatigue which worsened last Saturday. The next couple of days it got better but I started to develop cold symptoms such as runny nose, phlegm, and nasal congestion around Tuesday. I finally tested on Wednesday and came out positive. It’s been over a week since my first symptom, but I’m not sure when to test again to see if I am positive.
