I've got a question - at my first midwife appointment I was asked to go on aspirin (my mum had pre-eclampsia with me) to prevent it, to have a flu vaccine, to have a whooping cough vaccine (both whilst pregnant) and later found out that I am Rhesus negative - and need Anti-D injection (whilst pregnant).
Is this standard practice to offer flu and whooping cough vaccine whilst pregnant? I'm not up for taking aspirin every day, I don't think I'll need the flu jab as it's not flu season and baby due start of October, whooping cough?! and has anyone had the whooping cough or anti-d injection whilst pregnant?
Feel like you need a flipping medical degree to decide what to do with all this. I'm really healthy, like really healthy - haven't been ill in ages and I'm not really up for all these meds and vaccines unless absolutely necessary.
Any advice or experience appreciated...!
Oh first scan is tomorrow morning - can't wait and nervous - eeeek! Hope you are all well x
