Flu Shot or Not?!?!

So here is my question. What are all of your thoughts on the flu shot? I have never had the flu shot, I seem to go through the questioning phase with every pregnancy as whether to get it or not. Both of my other two pregnancies I did not get one and did fine. But this is the first time I have been seriously nagged by the doctor to get one. Is it because of the challenge of their being the two possible strands this year or just an over cautious doctor. So how many of you get the flu shot for each pregnancy. And if you did get it while...

Med and Pregnancy

Hi, I know i will have to discuss this with my doctors, but just wondered if any of you have went through/are going through this.

My husband and I would like to have another child and are considering trying again in a few months. I have heard that warfarin causes severe birth defects and or miscarraige. Have any of you taken this med or another similar during...

Experiene with Toxoplasmosis?

Have you had any experience with toxoplasmosis, especially in young children? If so, tell me if you think this sounds like it. I've already looked up all the signs and symptoms and done my reserach online and that is why I think this might be toxoplasmosis. I am thinking our children might have caught toxoplasmosis from their recently adopted 6 week old kitten. Our 1-1/2-year-old daughter started running a 102 fever about Thursday and it has only seemed to break today. She's been very cranky and irritable, complaining of pain (at one...

Pain During Intercourse?

First of all, I'm a VERY paranoid person. I just found out last week I'm pregnant with my 3rd child & since my second one was born which was 3 years ago, I haven't had a pap smear done. So, I know at my first doctor appointment I will have to get one & since I've waited so long I started looking online for reason of abnormal pap results and what could cause cervical cancer and things like that and one symptom of something was pain during intercourse. I don't know if it's because I already have two children or what the extent has to be of...
