I'm 5w1d with my first and I'm panicked about the flu epidemic. When I found out we were pregnant (after a year and a half of trying) I was thrilled and then thought "Oh no, during the worst flu season in years!"
Are the rest of you super worried? My coworker next to me has the flu and has been coughing... I know this is crazy, but I have contemplated taking the next several weeks off work until I can get through the flu craze.
Riding on the Metro subway to and from work makes it even more likely I'll get sick. Suggestions? Anyone else in the same boat?!
I didn't get the flu shot because I am worried about the vaccine itself. Damned if I do and damned if I don't I guess!?!? I wish I had gotten the vaccine before we got pregnant.
