Has anyone miscarried after getting the H1N1 flu shot

I got the shot when I was 7 weeks pregnant, I am 11 weeks now and I miscarried today. The doc said that the Ultra sound showed that the baby died at 7 weeks. Please ladies I beg you do not get the shot . Please google miscarriages after getting the shot you will all be suprised. I am heart broken to think that I shoul of followed my gut instinct. I lost my baby.

  • Yes. that's one of the major issues that has been occuring for the pregnant women who got the shot. You should report that (or have your doctor report it) to VAERS.

  • Im really sorry to hear that happening to you :( I got the shot when i first learned i was pregnant and havent had anything wrong so far. Im almost 19 weeks and the baby is doing great, very active and healthy so far. My thoughts are with you. Are you going to try again?

  • A lot of women in the first trimester that get the H1N1 vaccine miscarry. Many women in the third trimester getting the shot go into premature labor.

    The vaccine package insert even states that the affects of the vaccine on pregnant women and their fetuses is unknown.

    I'm pregnant and I'm not getting near that vaccine. I urge other expectant mothers not to get it either.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I joined the Miscarriage/pregnancy loss support group here on cafemom and it helped a lot after I miscarried. I hope you find peace soon.
