I had my first prenatal appt yesterday and today my dr called me and told me I wasn't immune to Rubella. He asked me to come in and do more blood work but shortly after called me again and told me never mind that he can retest my blood from yesterday. He couldn't talk long because he had a patient waiting. So now I'm completly freaking out!! Does anyone know anything about Rubella and not being immune to it? Please any help or advice would be great!

It just means you could catch rubella. Which is so slim. They will push the vax on you after baby is born.

I am the same way. My body will not build an immunity to any vaccines actually. They tried to give me the shots a few times and it just doesn't work. It is best to keep a healthy diet, exercise appropriately, and avoid the sick and even avoid children you don't know. When I was pregnant I avoided places with large groups of children to protect myself.

I also work at hospital, registration where i'm face to face with all patients, so now i'm not sure if I should quit. I'm going to be quitting in about a month anyway because i'm moving

Rubella is a mild illness, less severe usually than even chicken pox. But if you get it in the first half of pregnancy it can cause birth defects. Your doctor will want you to get the vax after the baby is born. You can't get the vax during pregnancy.

German measles isn't really a big deal and it's not likely you will catch it.

I'm a product of a mother who had Ruebella. I was born with deafness, no equilibrium, poor eyesight, ADHD, mild learning disability.

My mom was 15 when she got pregnant and her parents were too poor to afford vaccinations. She caught it. Had a mild rash and low grade fever.

 Watch yourself in public. There isn't much Rubella (formerly  called German Measles) around because MOST children are vaccinated. However, if you were to get it in the first trimester, your child could be born blind and/or deaf.  The main problem was a bunch of totally discredited research about a link between infant vaccinations and autism. Some mothers are not vaccinating their children. These children  are a danger to you.
