Okay, I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I'm a senior in high school. With the flu season coming around fairly soon I'm pretty concerned for myself and my baby. I start back to school Aug. 27th, I will be going on 35 weeks and I plan to continue attending school until I have my baby. After I have my baby I want to get back to school as soon as possible, I don't want to get behind and my parents aren't allowing me to take off for an extended period of time. I'm worried that I will get this new flu either while pregnant or after having the baby and then the baby will get sick..
Are there extra precautions I can take to ensure my baby's and my own safety? I know that obviously good hand washing and not being around people who are sick. The hand washing is easy but staying away from sick people while in a public high school setting is going to be difficult.
Should I be concerned about this? Or am I overreacting?
