  • I think someone is trying to scare you. I'm not going to get one because I've never had one before and I've never gotten sick. My mom and my grandma got theirs last year and they got sicker than they'd ever been in their lives. But don't be scared. I'm sure millions of people get the shots and their babies are just fine =]

  • Honestly I think people sit around all day and think of ways to scare pregnant women. Don't eat this , don't do that. It is all crazy! I did whatever I wanted and ate whatever I wanted with all 3 of my kids and they are all fine. My sister got flu shots with all 3 of hers and they are all fine. You can not always listen to what people say and I have a perfect example for you! When my sister first got pregnant her husbands mom actually told her that if they have sex they have to use a condom or it will hurt the baby! I am saddened to say my sister listened until I slapped her upside the head LOL.
