Flu shot during very early pregnancy
I'm a 36 year old mom in San Francisco. My husband and I started trying for another child a few weeks ago, and it is possible that we conceived when I ovulated 11 days ago (too early for pregnancy test, but I noticed some implantation spotting earlier today). Can I have a flu shot tomorrow, or is it already too late since they are contraindicated during pregnancy? I appreciate your help very much!

flu shots are not contraindicated in pregnancy - only the nasal flu mist is not recommended.  in fact my ob just gave me a flu shot on friday!  flu shots are recommended for all women who will be pregnant during the flu season although some will avoid the shot in first trimester.
