I'm pregnant, but it was a suprise for me and my husband. We are very happy with that little gift.

The only thing is, i realize that i got a seasonal flu shot a week before the conception. ( after i calculated )

So i called my doctor and she said not to worried... but a mother always want the best for her baby, so i worried.

I don't want to start a debate on flu shot, but just want to know if there's anyone who got a flu shot not knowing they were pregnant or were trying to get pregnant. 

Any advices !


thank you



(sorry for my spelling )

The CDC recommends flu shots for pregnant women. I know this is probably something most of the MDC community disagrees with. I have had flu shots during both pregnancies.

My doctor recommended the flu shot during this pregnancy. I didn`t and eventually ended up with the flu. It wasn`t pleasant.

I had the flu shot during my pregnancy because I work on a college campus with students (and it was winter).  No problems so far.  The risks are really low, especially if you're talking pre-conception.  I wouldn't worry about it at all.  And ultimately, it's already done, so there's nothing you can do about it anyway.  Try to relax and enjoy your pregnancy.  Congrats!
