  • My son had H1N1 when I was pregnant and the flu. Unfortunately I got the flu and everything was fine. With the H1N1 I was still giving him kisses on the lips before we found out and I still didn't get it. Just be careful and try not to stress about it. They say its safe to take the tamiflu. GL

  • If your doc knows you are pregnant, yet gave you the med, then I wouldn't worry about the baby

  • Your doc shouldnt have given you the tamiflu unless you were having early symtoms of the flu. I was directly exposed to h1n1 when I was pregnant and my doc waited to see if I would get sick before giving it to me. I ended up not getting sick so i didnt need to take it. Dont take it if you already have not.
