I've seen a few questions on here recently about the flu. My Dr did recommend that I get the flu shot, just normal flu not swine flu. I have never had the flu and the only sickness I EVER get is strep throat, and I dont really want to get the flu shot bc it seriously seems like everytime my grandparents get a flu shot one of them gets the flu a week or two later.
I've also heard people saying (here around my area anyways) that the swine flu shot AND vaccine have not been fully tested and that it may not be good/safe for pregnant women?
I'm honestly not too worried about getting the flu, and Ive read up online about it and as long as you stay hydrated then you should be fine while pregnant.
What are your thoughts on this and are you or have you got a flu shot this year while pregnant?
