I wonder if it's safe to receive a flu shot while TTC? I keep getting mixed reviews on the net and will probably end up calling obgyn later, has anybody asked their obgyn this question?
I might have posted this before, but since winter squash is in season and really cheap at the store now (like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin, spaghetti squash, and all those Vitamin A packed orange vegetables), I've read half of the article on the internet about getting too much Vitamin A and birth defects: Half say that the only "bad Vitamin A you can get too much of" is only from vitamin supplementation or preformed vitamin A AND animal products such as liver and that orange fruits or vegetables are beta carotene and you can eat as much as you want and the body won't convert the beta carotene into Vitamin A in the body unless it needs it....."
Then the other half of the articles say, "Regardless of the source, limit orange fruits and vegetables high in Vitamin A, animal products such as liver, etc..."
So which one is it? Fall is here and Thanksgiving is coming and I LOVE all these orange fruits and vegetables and eat lots of them and now I'm scared and I feel way too stupid to actually call the obgyn and ask them this.
