I had the anti-d and whooping cough jabs yesterday. MW told me anti-d would be worst so got that in my left arm. No aches or pains whatsoever from the anti-d - my right arm from the whooping cough is a different story and I can't raise my arm up. Today has been a mission trying to do everything lefthanded lol. It's not that bad though tbh, it's certainly not going to be anything compared to labour and I'll take it though if it means girlbean is protected - I know of two people who currently have whooping cough so it is clearly around in my area
hi there i hope you dont mind me asking but i just wondered what made you decide not to have the jab. i am so unsure about what to do for the best all the worry is really starting to get me down. its all i think about to have or not have the jab. i just dont no what to do. my concern is that i am so worried if the injection can/will at all effect/harm my unborn baby. any advice/information would be very much appreciated. thank you
I got it and my arm was really sore for 2 days, I couldn't even drive lol!
I think some people are choosing not to have it because of previous scares with mmr etc and it's untested on pg, but most drugs are! I decided I have to trust the nhs and my mw because nobody knows and another baby died y'day because of whooping cough and if my baby caught it I'd never forgive myself!
It is on the increase and it's because our general immunity is decreasing.
I won't get it. Nor will I let them give it to my 3 yr old or baby when she's old enough.
No flu shots or h1n1 here either.
I'm intrigued why you won't get it?
Not trying to speak on NicholaP's behalf or anything, but have you ever really looked at the effectiveness of the whooping vaccine? It's notoriously ineffective, and many children and adults who have the vaccine still get sick.
The other huge thing is that vaccines contain some of the scariest ingredients that you are injecting into your body along with the "vaccine." These ingredients are in ALL vaccines: things like formaldehyde, aborted fetal cells, fetal calf or chicken cells, mercury, aluminum, etc.
These are not healthy things for our bodies, and usually end up causing more harm than good.
I will be letting my child build up her immune system as nature saw fit, not with the use of vaccines...especially the ones that exist today.
Everyone entitled to their opinion obviously and I totally respect yours. I just feel prevention is better than cure, and especially with Whooping Cough being on the biggest high in many years. But everyone has their own views and that's what's great about these forums! We are not here to judge! Xx
i think its pretty normal for this to happen, happened to me so i looked it up and 1 in 5 adults that get it done experience the red, raised itchy lump that it seems we have all got (: hope it feels better soon x
To be honest the original question wasn't for an opinion of the safety or effectiveness of the vaccine but as to whether others had experienced discomfort afterwards. Posting a list of not very nice ingredients of the vaccine probably wouldn't be very helpful for the OP (who has already had the vaccine) and would probably just cause them worry.
My coworker had the red, raised bump and soreness and I was a bit nervous about how I would react, but I ended up being totally fine without any real tenderness. I think my arm was sorer after the flu jab, and that only felt like the burn you have after a good workout. I hope it all clears up soon for you.
