    The pregnant wife really should get a 2nd opinion...

    But say something to your friend, like, it'd mean a lot to us for you to be there, but to be there we want you vaccinated.


    and yeah, it's been tested a few million times over now... and before that too.

    If they're big enough assholes to disrespect your request around a baby shower and lie about their status, they aren't worth shit friend-wise. If you disagree - sure, but say something.

    Are you sure that you didnt get covid around the same time as getting vaccinated?

    Wife and I had the same symptoms after the vaccine that we had with COVID a year earlier. The kind of odd symptoms were the COVID toes and teeth sensitivity.

    Pregnant friend of mine got the vaccine and immediately pegged a 104 degree fever, and its a common side effect. Looks like she and baby are going to be ok, but yeah, that is not good if you are expecting as any parent knows. Pregnant ladies are pretty much the one group that gets a get out of jail free card if you ask me.

    I agree to an extent, but also question why someone would get pregnant during a pandemic in the first place.

    Yes. I also know about the existence of birth control.

    Yeah. Sorry. My post wasn’t clear, except in the context of the quoted post about “breakthrough” infucktion and the 95% myth.

    Wife had vax in jan. We all gots the rona 4 weeks ago, including wifey.

    PS. For the 95% truthers out there, explain the Yankees baseball infection. That seems like a lot more than 5% of the coaching staff. All had the vax.

    My question is are we positive they actually had the vax? Also when did they test positive versus when did they allegedly receive the vaccine? I find it suspicious.

    Yankees used the J&J vax. It is only about 66% “effective” at preventing infection (but better than that at preventing serious illness). According to one article I read, the results are exactly what to expect with the J&J vax. Why the Yankees decided to go with J&J is anyone’s guess.

    It's one shot, one and done. 2weeks later they are good to go.

    Versus the 2shots which is a longer time from first jab to good to go.


    I got J&J, but didn't have a choice.

    We had many pregnant women in all stages come through our mass vax clinic.

    Cool story KQ, but like I said, there are known side effects than can affect a pregnancy that I give that one group a pass on waiting to get vaxxed till after they deliver. Some are more willing to get the vaccine than others in that subset, and there are real detriments if shit goes sideways, as in bigger problems than Covid.

    You don't have kids, so you probably don't know the details of how a high grade fever can affect an expecting mother and the baby, other than your usual googling. I'm not going to lecture you on it, but lets just say its a bit more complicated than just placating your personal fear of covid as a third party.

    Oh. All this time I thought you were a guy. Sorry. It's so hard to tell on these forums. Take Jax for instance - just realize he was a she the other day.

    When are you due?

    My wife and I just had a kid through all this, so yeah, it was a pretty big topic in my household and we went over it with several docs as well. So yeah, a bit more experience than you on this one.

    Letting a pregnant lady decide to wait a couple months, given the real and known side effects said vaccine can have, and the real effects that those can have on your baby, is completely reasonable. We are talking about a very select subset of the world here, and it doesn't effect you as a vaccinated person, like really at all.

    We had the baby early prior to widespread vaccine availability, but our Harvard educated OB and Stanford educated pediatrician are advising pregnant women to wait, so I'm going to trust them over you on this one.
