I had my first prenatal appt. yesterday and my due date is may 17th.  Got to see the little one during my u/s.  So cute.

I didnt feel well all day and called into work that evening and was told by my boss to get checked for H1N1 b/c someone I worked with tested positive for it.  So I went to the ER last night and sure enough that's what I have, the H1N1 flu.  They gave me tamiflu and said it was ok to take during pregnancy.  Well, tonight I looked it up and it says not recommened for pregnant or nursing women.  Yikes!!  I've taken 3 of them, but won't take anymore until I talk with my OB tomorrow.

Has anyone taken tamiflu while pregnant or know anything about it?

Thanks.

Tamiflu is a dangerous drug, I wouldn't take it, pregnant or not.  And it will only shorten symptoms by up to one day.  People have been reported as getting violently ill, dizziness, hallucinations, severe anxiety and depression, even suicidal thoughts.  Please be careful!
