hi all i had a missed miscarriage last year at 11 weeks and a miscarriage in dec at 5 weeks....so we were putting off conceiving for a year as in three years i got pregnant twice and they both failed....im starting work friday and as i will be on a hospital ward i had to have my hep b vaccine and my mmr vaccing we had been using precautions so not to get pregnant then today something told me to test i am 14 dpo and i had two thick blue positive tests...i am panicing now incase the vaccines have done any harm to the fetus and its typical im about to start a new job lol so i will have to hide it for a while and pray this one sticks....anyone know if having the vaccines can cause damage it was not done on purpose as we were using precautions and they are right what they say if a little one is meant to be then there is nothing you can do about it lol talk about shock
dont know about the jabs but wanted to say congrats and sending you lots of sticky glue!
Im testing later on today as im also 14dpo...i had a second trimester loss with my first pregnancy in '09, got pregnant again in june '10 and now have a lovely sweet healthy one year old baba boy i found out i was pregnant with my son just 2 weeks after being made redundant so yeah...when it happens, it happens. but you know its been the best time of my life
Try not to worry too much cause chances are that things will turn out fine, just enjoy it all
thank you so much having a loss is so hard....im trying to relax....its the jobs that are worrying me but ive done some research and they said there is no solid evidence that they can effect the fetus so fingers crossed...im still in shock lol.....didnt expect this to happen especially when taking precautions lol xx
Congrats to you! Sorry you have a reason to worry about your baby.
I'm no doctor, but I do want to suggest that there are lots of things people do to their bodies that can cause harm to a fetus before they know they are pregnant. However, because their egg is so young and hasn't made all the connections to the placenta/umbilical cord is not formed/etc, there is some built-in natural protection to the baby. Maybe that can give some added peace of mind.
Firstly a big congratulations!!
Also maybe I can offer some reassurance. I am a dentist and had to have Hep B booster and flu jabs a couple of months ago. I am on my 3rd pregnancy in 3 month (I know!!!!). When I had the jabs I wasn't pregnant but at some stage in the TTC process, I discussed at length with Occupational Health whether to have the jabs and was told no real evidence that they cause harm to baby. The big risk is more that you contract Hep B or flu or any of the MMR viruses whilst you're pregnant. I weighed up the evidence and decided that the benefits out weighed the tiny tiny risk.
I know everyone has their own opinion but I had them. I did not get pregnant the month I had them to put your mind at rest also, this wasn't the reason for any of the MCs.
Try not to worry flower. What's done is done and it seems this little on was on it's way for you this time with real determination!!! So good luck and relax x x x
