Hiya ladies, apologies if anyone else has posted a thread on flu vaccine but i couldn't find one. Are you having/have you had the flu vaccine? GP recommending it but i am unsure so early in pregnancy (5 weeks 5 days)
I'm 5w2d now, was at gp last Fri and was surprised she didn't mention it. The research says it's safe. I've never got it before but part of me feels I should. Very reluctant to get it before 12 weeks.. flu season will be nearly at an end at that stage!
I got it, I wouldn't usually but you've got to think of ur baby so decided to take my doctors advice
I got it when I was around 26 or so weeks. I had no side effects from it.
I had never got it before but like others the doc recommended that I get it.
I haven't had it yet but i am going to get it as it's recommended. I wonder can i have it done in the hospital next Monday or do i have to wait for my next doctors appointment?
I got it around 26 weeks or so - no side effects - I trust my doc and he assured me was ok
I got it at 16 weeks. No side affects whatsoever. With my first baby I got a really bad dose of flu at 7 months which turned into pneumonia. Recovered with no ill affects to baby thankfully but it was a horrible time. I'd rather take the vaccine than risk going through anything like that again.
Haven't gotten it yet. Consultant recommended getting after 14 weeks but I'm a little unsure. Having read your post, starting over, I'm beginning to question myself. I don't usually get the flu and have been neurotic about washing my hands so I was hoping that and a boost of vitamin c would keep me safe......
My consultant recommended getting after 15 weeks, not before. I will be getting next week!
I spoke to midwife friend and she didn't have vaccine when she was pregnant, so have decided not to have it until after the 12 weeks at least.....
