Anyone else nervous about flu shots this early in pregnancy? My Dr. says anytime, that it won't have any effects on the pregnancy, but I am still nervous...we get free shots at work, but that is this week and next week.

My midwife says they are safe at anytime.

I was ttc last month and went to get my flu shot. I talked to the nurse about it and she had a special shot for pregnant woman and she gave me that one just to be safe. Might want to ask the nurse about it before you do it.
