No wait needed.: Tdap is recommended for intended parents prior to pregnancy. If someone is currently pregnant we recommend waiting until after 20 weeks, preferably in the third trimester. The vaccine is not a live vaccine so no worries about transmission to a pregnancy if you concieved in the near future.
