I've been lurking for a while but thought I should officially say hi. We are pregnant with our first and haven't told anyone in our lives yet - waiting until the time is right. I have so many questions and this seems to be a good place to get answers.
My midwife is encouraging everyone to get the flu and H1N1 shots this fall. I've never gotten the flu shot before and really do not want to get any vaccinations while pregnant. I know it's not a live virus but I'm concerned about the mercury in the shots. I'm fairly healthy and take precautions but I do ride the metro to/from work. What others here in the DC area are doing? TIA!
