(Enfluenza) The Flu
Hello All,
I am new to the family, and I have a couple questions about the flu. I am 6 weeks preggo, and I am concerned about this winter taking its toll on me. Every year, I come down with some sort of a cold, and I heard that while preggo you cant do too much but take tylenol?? I want to get my flu shot, but I have never had one, and I and wondering about the side effects it may cause on my baby? Is it safe? Am I too far along for one? Can someone help me with this please. Thanks.

If your pregnancy overlaps with the flu season, you should get vaccinated, especially if you're in the second or third trimester (past 13 weeks). Some doctors wait til after the first trimester but then others give it at anytime. They can also give you a thimerosol free flu vaccination if you wish.
