Just wanted to let you ladies know of yet another fun 1st tri symptom!
I just got my flu shot, and I bled like a stuck pig! The nurse practitioner stuck me, and blood squirted out and ran down my arm. She told me she didn't expect me to bleed, and jumped across the room to grab gauze and a band-aid, and then she asked me if I was on an aspirin or ibuprofen regimen. I told her no, but I was pregnant, and she told me that explained it. At this point in our pregnancies, we have majorly increased blood volume, but not much (or any) extra room in our bodies for it. So be prepared if you're going to get a flu shot, because sticking me was like sticking a full water balloon!
