anyone going to get the flu shot?

does anyone know if getting the flu shot while TTCing is good or bad?

my work is offering it and i think i should get it but don't want to do any damage either.

TIA.

I got one 2 weeks ago. My whole family did. I was just starting a new cycle, so I decided to get one. I do know it takes 2 weeks before the shot starts to work...

I remember asking my dr the first time I was ttc. I think it is ok before you are pg, and in your 2nd trimester. But, I am not certain. You may want to ask your dr. to be safe.
