Re: Flu Shot During Pregnancy

I got the flu shot last fall about a week or two after my 10w u/s (where we saw a nice, strong HB) and then had a m/c not long after (baby stopped growing at 13w). Call it coincidental if you want, but I didn't risk it with this pregnancy. Last year was the first year I had gotten the flu shot since I felt pressured by my employer. I can't even remember the last time I had the flu.

It's a very personal decision.

Re: Flu Shot During Pregnancy

I got the flu shot when I was pregnant with my fourth. I was at the end of my 1st trimester and had no problems with it. I got it because I got the flu when I was pregnant with my 3rd baby and ended up the hospital with a high fever at 30 weeks. My dd heart rate was high until they were able to get my fever down. It was very scary for me having to be in the hospital being closely monitored. I also had two other kids and a husband home at the time sick with the flu. It was a horrible week.

Re: Flu Shot During Pregnancy

Thanks for the replies! I chickened out and didn't get it. I already feel crappy with ms and everytime I get the flu shot(3times) I feel awful for days sore arm, stiff neck, headaches.
Thanks again!

Re: Flu Shot During Pregnancy

great decision! If you look at the manufacture's insert, you will see that all vaccines have very toxic ingredients not suitable for babies or pregnant women, or even pets for that matter. your MDs will say that it is recommended by the american association of pediatrics or the american medical association or what have you and since these are all nonprofit organizations you can look online and see who funds them and in every case it is the pharmaceutical companies and vaccine makers. so what a coincidence that they would recommend those products!

not- it takes 2-3 weeks to kick in anyway and at this point, I'm just not going there. Washing hands a lot- that's my strategy
