  • My midwife suggested AGAINST it this year, as the strain of flu isn't particularly bad. I've never had one before, but I hear ads that say pregnant women should get one. .. But not THIS pregnant woman THIS year!

  • I didn't when I was pregnant with my 5yo and then I ended up with the flu in the hospital so when I became pregnant with DD I made sure I got the flu shot I didn't want to take any chances.

  • I did with my first my job required it but I would never get it now with the H1N1 in it, it can cause birth defects and miscarriage
