Flu Shot During Pregnancy?

Did you (or will you) get the flu shot during your pregnancy?  Has your doctor discussed the option with you at all?  What were your reasons for having it or not?

I just got mine at my last OB visit. I'm down and out enought as it is with m/s. I want to reduce my risk of getting the flu as much as possible!

I got one about 6 weeks ago. I was leary about getting it during pregnancy but my doctor said elderly, children and pregnant women are the most vulnerable to the flu and should receive it. He said it was safe and I trust him completely so I got mine.
