MMR vaccine and pregnancy

I had NO intentions of getting pregnant at the age of 34 as I already have a  10 yr old, and about 3 weeks ago had to have the MMR vaccine for work. It wasnt until yesterday that took a pregnancy test as I am about 6 days past due my period, and although my husband and I are delightfully surprised of a positive reading, am concerned with the risks of MMR and pregnancy, especially if I am in fact pregnant it would only be a few weeks. IS there any proof of birth defects with woman that administered this vaccine during the first month of pregnancy? If so what are the statistics?

Thanks so much

Lucy

I don't know if I am much help but I found this:

What is the recommended length of time a woman should wait after receiving rubella (or MMR) vaccine before becoming pregnant?
Four weeks. In October 2001, ACIP voted to change its recommendation for the waiting interval following the administration of rubella vaccine. The interval was reduced from 3 months to 4 weeks. The waiting period for measles and mumps vaccine was already one month.

Actually i spoke to my Dr about this yesterday.  I had the vaccinne and then got pregnant (first pregnancy) and lost the baby at 19 weeks due to chromosone defects. I asked the Dr about this and she said that it had absoulutly no bearing on what happened and although there is a therotecial risk there are 0 cases of the vaccine actually causing harm to the fetus. and that if someone accidently got the vaccine while pregnant there would be no measures taken (meaning they would not reccomend abortion as with say taking accutane)

Ok found something else:

I received the MMR vaccine before I knew I was
pregnant, will this harm the baby?

In very rare instances, a person who
receives the rubella vaccine will develop the
illness. Because of this very small but possible
risk it is recommended that a woman wait 28
days after receiving the vaccine to become
pregnant.
There is information on a large number of
pregnancies where a woman received the MMR
vaccine during pregnancy. No babies were born
with Congenital Rubella Syndrome and there was
not an increase in the rate of birth defects.
