Yes


The pneumoccal vaccines (more than one) are composed of non living material and pose no risk to the developing fetus.They can be given as indicated at any point in pregnancy. Some practitioners avoid use in the first trimester out of a sense of caution, but there are no documented problems when it has been given during that period.

Likely safe, but...


It would likely be safe to receive a pneumonia vaccine, but typically there is no reason to recommend it. Do consider a flu vaccine when in season, and Tdap for pertussis protection.

No


No, eating ice during pregnancy can not cause pneumonia. In fact, for some women, especially those with lots of morning sickness, eating ice can be a good way to help keep hydrated.

Before having a baby, see your dentist. Dental infections are more difficult to treat when pregnant.

While pregnant, you can still get any infection that you come around just like you could if not pregnant. It's unfortunate, but it should be fine with proper treatment.

Soft cheeses?


Like the other doctors, I'm not aware of a link between ice cream and pneumonia. In rare cases a fetus can get very sick or even become stillborn if the mother eats cheese or other food contaminated with Listeria. Symptoms in infant include breathing difficulties like rapid breathing, fever, etc. You can read more from the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/pregnancy_gateway/infections-listeria.html

Probably little


If you get adequate treatment for your self the baby will likely be fine. Medicines used to treat both the infection and the asthma do not typically bother the baby, and if your symptoms are treated the baby should be ok

Unlikely to be pbm


Your son's pneumonia is likely caused by germs from his own airway that settled into his lungs. Most are not particularly contagious.(but practice regular hand washing) Your fetus is relatively insulated against simple illnesses you might catch unless it has a blood phase like a flu where it could pass to the infant via the placenta. Your catching a pneumonia would not automatically hurt baby

It is safe


It is safe and important in protecting you from contracting pertussis.. You will get the TdaP vaccine which is the version of for all older than 7 years old. DtaP is the version for younger children. Pertussis is an illness that can be serious in very young infants. Although pertussis immunization starts at 2 mos of age, babies need at least 3 shots in the series to have protection.
