Hi cutie_hema and Jan,
Your baby and you should be just fine! I checked out ivillage.com on this issue, and read that if you had your Rubella shot one month before becoming pregnant all should be fine. You may want to check out that site as well.
Congratulations on your wee one!!!
The vaccine is a live attenuated virus vaccine. So it is not the same as getting the real virus.
In a 10-year survey involving over 700 pregnant women who received rubella vaccine within 3 months before or after conception, (of whom 189 received the Wistar RA 27/3 strain) none of the newborns had abnormalities compatible with congenital rubella syndrome. Nonetheless women should be counseled to avoid becoming pregnant for 28 days after exposure to rubella-containing vaccines.
I think you and the baby should be fine. Always best to contact an OB doctor and get started on proper prenatal care.
How did everyone else go?
In the same boat 2mnths ago I had my rubella and my GP and OB said no issue at all.
Still anxious but only other site I found was a WA health site;
Pregnant women and MMR vaccine
To prevent any possible harm to your baby, you shouldn’t have an MMR vaccination if you are thinking of becoming pregnant. You should also wait 2 months after having MMR vaccination before becoming pregnant.
Should you discover you are pregnant after having MMR vaccination, discuss with your doctor. There are no known cases of the vaccine harming the developing baby, but doctors generally try not to give any live vaccines or medications during pregnancy. Having MMR vaccination in early pregnancy is not a reason to terminate a pregnancy (have an abortion).
Hi every one!
I was mistakenly given MMR shot and after two weeks I found I was pregnant.I had MMR on 22 July and I think I conceived on 24 July. I am so worried and anxious and not sure to continue the pregnancy or not. Now I am in 11 weeks. Is there anyone with this similar experience? Please help me:(((((((
