Actually, when you are pregnant, your immune system is weaker. It has to become weaker, otherwise it would see the embryo/fetus as a invader and it would attacker and it would kill it.
This is why pregnant women are urged to get the vaccine, because they don't have the immune system to fight off the virus. The vaccine will help produce anibodies helping their body ward off the virus, if they were to become infected.
A special thank you to Amber for the awesome siggy!! You ROCK!!
