Okay, so I signed up to get the flu shot not knowing I was going to be pregnant. It's this Friday. My question is - is it okay for me to get it? I would like any type of feedback - personally or professionally. Thank you.

What can I do next?

I have heard absolutely not in the first trimester. But, my midwife recommended one when I was only 8 weeks along, and I got it. I think you should ask a couple doctors/nurses to be sure.

i know there is a certain timeframe when they say not to get it and i think its right away but not positive so i would call a nusre line or ask the nurse doing the flu shot,but i do know they want you to get one with the way Congrats!!!!!

it is okay to get a flu shot when you are pregnant, and they normally recommend it. but since you are only a couple of weeks along, you may need to postpone it. this is a question best asked to a nurse or your doctor.

I had a flu shot with both pregnancies. My OB and Midwife recommend it.

Check with your Dr. but I would plan on still getting the shot.

My best friend got them with both of her last two pregnancies at the recommendation of her doctor. I'd call and speak to a nurse first with being early along. They're pretty tough at the embryonic stage.
