I booked my covid booster for later this week, but wondering if anyone has gotten it in their first trimester? I’m already so nauseous that I’m afraid I’ll be really ill afterwards. I know the jabs are safe for pregnancy, but has anyone talked to their GPs about the benefits of getting it in early pregnancy vs waiting a bit?
Hello. I had my second dose in my first trimester and like you was really struggling with sickness. I had it at 10.5 weeks and I didn’t have any side effects. I’ve just had my booster at 29 weeks after a very unwelcome return of sickness at 26 weeks. The jab didn’t seem to make it worse, I have felt tired but nothing a bit of rest and toast hasn’t solved.
On timing, I decided not to wait till my second trimester as I really didn’t want to get poorly and I was anxious every time I left the house but it is of course your decision. I’d had the first dose just a few days before starting IVF. I’m glad I did as I feel happy to be protected and my baby will be too.
I hope your sickness eases soon. x
