    Default Odd thing I found out at appt

    It seems that I don't have immunity to rubella any longer. They took that test awhile ago with all those tubes of blood. He doesn't want me around sick kids during my pregnancy. You can't get vaccinated while pregnant because it's a live virus. I read about it because I just know I had it when I was young because I was born in Italy to American parents because my father was in the Army. Sure enough, the info say's In some adults, the vaccine may wear off and not fully protect them. I am such an oddball....

    I was born (and raised) in Spain to an american father who was in the Air Force. Wow I honestly had no clue that could happen! Good luck girl, I'm sure it will all be ok.

    yeah I think it will be. The only part that sucks is I'm trying to take my DD out more to kids stuff like this place monkey joes which is just full of bounce houses. There is a gym that I want to take her too as well and that means being around kids!

    Yeah that is hard! I have two other children, one in school, so there is no way I can avoid all the sicknesses. Talk to you dr again and see if you cant take any precautions and still be able to have your child interact with other children. Cause that is just impossible to stay away for 9 months from other children and not fair to DD.

    I had that happen as well with my first baby, but they didn't even tell me until after baby was born and they offered me the shot at the hospital. If it was that much of a danger I think they would have told me earlier. I would say do what you want and wash hands well. If there is a rubella outbreak, it will be on the local news. There is also the possibility that your immune system could fight it off if you are healthy otherwise. This is why "herd immunity" is important, not every vaccine is effective in every person and they do wear off over time.

    That's the problem though. My immune system sucks. I have a long past medical history and no spleen. He just wants me to careful because of the risk to the baby being miscarriage or stillbirth. I think I will be like always and wash my hands and nails.

    I have no immunity to Rubella at all, despite many attempts at vaccination. Basically, my body doesn't build antibodies to it. Same with Chicken Pox and a few others. So don't worry, you aren't a freak!

    I hope there are no outbreaks though. It's very rare to see Rubella these days. My doctor said she has seen only 1 outbreak in 10 years.
