Flu question...

Can you get it twice...in the same season? I had it during my 38th week of pregnancy. It was gone by my c-section Jan 16th (39 weeks), except for a cough. Ow.

Today all of a sudden I feel like crap! Fever of 100, achy, freezing cold, etc. Is it possible I've got it again? Or another strain? Also, if I do, does anyone know if I can take TamiFlu while EBFing? I couldn't while pregnant. :(

Check with your ob....to make sure you don't have any postpartum infection going on such as mastitis which feels alot like the flu. You are just 3 weeks postpartum so I would def. call the doctor. They can do a nasal swab to confirm flu.
