Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Is it safe to get a flu shot? I am 24 weeks 3 days and just curious.

My doctor's office made me get one when I was pregnant with my 2nd son.  I didn't want to because I never get them, but they made me get one and my insurance provider agreed that I should get one.  Guess I'll be getting another one this time.  :(  It was safe and I didn't get the flu from it.  :)
i heard its safe to get one after 15weeks. but ask your doctor anyway
I would definitely consult your doctor's office before doing anything, but I asked by OB last week and she suggested my husband and I both get one in a couple weeks. Infants under 6 months of age shouldn't receive the flu vaccine, so if you're delivering during flu season, your baby will receive the vaccination through you...that sealed the deal for me! :)
