    Default flu vaccine

    After seeing my dr today he asked me if i was going to get the flu shot, i have never had it before and luckily enough dont suffer with colds or flu, but now that i am pregnant im thinking i should get this as extra procaution, have any other mums out there had the flu vaccine while pregnant? The dr told me this is a personal choice if i want it or not, i obviously want to protect my unborn baby any way possible

    Yes I'm pregnant and have had my flu vaccine. I have it every year, and so have had it while pregnant 4 times so far

    Yes. I had it with both my pregnancies.
    I get it every year anyway as I am a nurse.
    I believe it's quite important when pregnant.
