DDC Crash here. Im a nurse. Tdap can be given sooner for the Pertussis part of the vaccine. The tetanus part of the booster does not have to be repeated for 5-7 years but since its cheaper to not seperate the 3 vaccines, they give the whole Tdap regardless of the last time you had it, for the purpose of the pertussis part of the vaccine. You will be offered it in the hospital before you leave along with your babies Hep B shot. I recommend them to my patients and get them myself. I won't be having one while pregnant (I had a flu shot and im good with just that while actually pregnant). Ive never heard compelling evidence that it was unsafe to have it but it still makes me uncomfortable enough that I'd prefer it right after birth, personally. Good luck with your impending Births and congrats on your beautiful babies

I honestly dont know if Ive had it or not. Im pretty sure Ive had it with one of the girls.

My second dd got RSV at 2 mos old because her sister (who was 2 at the time) got it from a Moms Morning Out program. Some mom who chose to send her kid sick to this program got all 9 out of 10 kids infected. Plus my baby. I was ticked. But it really wasnt that bad, it was actually worse for my then 2 yr old than the baby, I guess because she was nursed. It was like a light cold for Clara. I really suggest doing all you can to BF your babies during the cold/flu season, it really does make a huge difference when they are sick!
