Flu Shot, H1N1 (SwineFlu) Shot....

I wonder if any ladies out there have a flu shot or H1N1 shot?  if you do, are there any side effects?

I have doctor appointment on Tuesday 9/22 and thinking about asking my doctor about the flu shot... I usually have my flu shot around this time... Now I am close to 23 weeks pregnant and don't want to have flu and also don't know should i get flu shot or not...

Would you have flu shot or H1N1 shot if your doctor offers?  any advice will help....

Have a wonderful night...

My doctor told me he wanted me to have both shots.  I also have another appointment on the 22nd of this month and I feel I should talk to him again about it.  I'm just a little uneasy about it.

I have already gotten the flu shot and had NO side effects. The H1N1 shot is still not available in my area but I am not sure if I will get that one.  I am 20 weeks preggers. :)

I'm 23 weeks pregnant also and I got the  normal seasonal flu shot and didn't have any adverse reactions.  My 17 month daughter also got it and she did great too!  I will definitely be getting the H1N1 vaccine as soon as it's available.

Thank you for posting this question!  I was going to do the same thing!

I work in a hospital and my doc said I will need to get the regular flu shot and then, the H1N1 when it comes out.  But I have a couple of weeks to get out of my first trimester.  He said I cannot have them until I am out of my first trimester.

I am definately getting the regular flu shot and I am still 50/50 about the swine flue shot, but will most likely get it cause I am a health care worker.
