Should I get the flu shot while pregnant?

I'm 4 months pregnant, should I or not get the flu shot? Is it safe?

I would ask what it is suspended in, and decide of you really want to have mercury and formaldehyde injected into your body...

The CDC recommends every pregnant woman should have the flu shot.  It will help keep both you and baby more healthy.  I did hear that you want to make sure you get the injection, not the nose spray.

I got my flu shot first prenatal visit. My doctor highly recommended it and I do too. I haven't had any flu abd I also heard that it helps baby up to six months to be protected against the flu if you get your shot while pregnant. I don't remember where I heard that one but any help I'll take it.
