Trying to Get Pregnant

Flu Shot while TTC?

Have you're doctors said anything about whether you should get a flu shot while TTC?   I know you're not supposed to get vaccinated while pregnant but havn't heard anything about TTC. 

Re: Flu Shot while TTC?

  • I'll be getting mine later this month.  I'm sure it's totally safe if your TTC. 
    So happy for my BFPB Steff13914 and her new twins! Welcome to the world sweet babies:) Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • It is fine and recommended to get the flu shot while pregnant or TTC.

  • You are supposed to get the Flu shot.  It is especially recommended for pregnant women.  My OB told me & DH to get it.  You just have to tell them that you're TTC so you get the shot, which is dead virus, instead of the nasal spray, which is live virus.

  • I did a few days before my fertile window.  It's totally safe - I read about it.  And my mom had the flu when pg with me and said it was awful.

  • Thanks for asking this, because I was wondering the same thing.  I've never taken the flu shot before, and I've always been just fine.  I'd like to skip the shot again this year, but if it would be better for baby, then I would do it.  But at this point we are all TTC, and there may be no baby.  So I dunno!

    Will doctors give flu shots to pregnant women?

    It is highly recommended that you get a flu shot while pregnant.
