I might have a flu and my wife is pregnant. What do I do!?!

I am having a lot of flu symptoms and I'd love nothing more than to go home and sleep it off.  Am I going to make my pregnant wife sick?  Should I get a hotel?  Business as normal? Help!

A hotel would be a little extreme. If she gets sick it's not really a big deal. (unless she has major complications) I had a horrible virus while pregnant, not to mention pregnancy will naturally lower your immune system. Just treat what you have as best you can and if she gets it as well her doctor can give her suggestions for medications.
