2 doctors agree

In brief: Prob not pertussis

both of u being vaccinated recently make pertussis less likely.
Good idea 2 b careful of any illnesses around ur baby though. all family members should b vaccinated against flu and pertussis. With ur symptoms, I would see a doctor to see if u have pneumonia, bronchitis, etc.

In brief: Relax

Common things happen more often.
URI's with cough often linger for a couple weeks. Your vaccination before babies birth gave it partial immunity & it has developed more with postnatal vaccines, so babies NOT at risk at all.
