Has Anyone Had the Swine Flu While Pregnant?

All we hear in the media is of the pregnant women who've had swine flu and died. I'm wondering how many pregnant women get it and do ok since I'm nearly 8 months pregnant.

Have any of you ladies had a CONFIRMED case of swine flu while pregnant?

  • No responses in a whole day? Has no one had the swine flu while pregnant or known someone who has and made it out ok?

  • We've had alot of people in my town get the swine flu but it's mostly been kids. No one has died from it here. I didn't get the vaccine bc Im not worried about getting it and my Dr said thats it's basically like the regular flu, just a different strand. From what I've read about it online, if your pregnant you just need to make sure you dont dehydrate.
