Flu shot and pregnancy??
Are you ladies getting a flu shot? Many medical websites (Mayo Clinic, etc) are saying pregnant women should get it regardless of how far along they are because the benefits FAR outweigh the risks. Here's an article I read: http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/influenza/AN00651
I can see both sides to the coin, but as a teacher, I think it might be a good idea for me to get it. It's just a scary thought to do it during my frist trimester. Maybe I will wait until November when I am in my 2nd?
I am going to talk to my OB on the 10th when I have my ultrasound...so we will see.
Just wondered what you all thought.
(I recognize that this is a hot-button topic, and I don't want to offend anyone! It's a very presonal choice for everyone)
