I've never been on this board before but I have a question that I was hoping some of you may be able to shed some light on!
My son will be 18months & is scheduled for his 18mth chickenpox vaccination next month. From what I've read, the vaccination is a live virus and can cause a mildcase of chickenpox in some babies. I've also read that chickenpox is dangerous to pregnant women in the first & second trimester.
I will be 6 weeks pregnant tommorrow, and I have never had chickenpox or been vaccinated against it. Do you think I should think about delaying his vaccinations incase of him getting it, and passing it to me or am I being totally paranoid?
Thanks! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!
