Flu shot fquestion from a lurker

With all the talk about the terrible flu season anticipated, I was considering getting a flu shot. Does anyone know whether it's ok to get one while trying to conceive?

TIA.

I recently did some research on just that. Some articles say to get the flu shot and that it's ok while trying to conceive, then you read that you should be past 3 months pregnant to get your flu shot...? I personally am not going to get a flu shot just in case, because if there's a problem w/ the pregnancy, are you going to find "blame" on the flu shot? If you really want to find out and you trust your OB doc, then call their office and ask. Let us know what you find out. Good luck!
