Flu Shot while TTC

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant and I was wondering if I should get a flu shot or not?  Does anyone know if this would be harmful?

Get it while you are on your period and you are sure you are not pregnant.

as long as you know you arent pregnant yet, you are fine, they say its not good to have a flu shot in your first trimester.

My doc had me get a flu shot when I was pregnant so I'm sure it's safe, depending on your overall health and how far along you are.

I was told not to in the first trimester.  I m/c in Sept, just got my first period so I got a flu shot.  Does anyone know if I need to wait any period of time before getting pregnant?
