Ok, I need your help. And by "you" I mean the 5 people that now read this blog. hehe
So last night Adam and I went to Kaiser and got our flu shots. My doctor strongly recommended it for me because I'm pregnant. And even though Adam had never had one before, I made him get it this year for my sake. I can't take care of a sick husband in my condition! Anyways, I get the shot every year so it really wasn't a hard decision for me. I figure pregnant women have been getting the flu shot for years, so they are pretty well informed about it.
The H1N1 shot, on the other hand, is stressing me out. Again, my doctor's office highly recommends it. I mean, pregnant women are dying from the swine flu! But for as much good information I hear about the vaccine, I also hear that it is causing miscarriages. I'm so conflicted! I have a couple weeks to decide, because I can get the vaccine during my next Dr. appt on the 22nd. Until then, I need your opinions. Would you get it if you were pregnant, knowing what you know about the vaccine?
On a lighter note, Adam and I celebrated our flu shots with Olive Garden last night. We were both really hungry, so we got the never-ending pasta bowl. We both ate our first bowl and then got the 2nd bowl of pasta to go. Ever since I got pregnant, it's like I can still eat as much, just not all at once. I have to eat smaller meals every couple hours. Otherwise I will get a horrible tummy-ache. =( And believe me, I got one last night! We asked our waiter what was the maximum number of pasta bowls a customer had ever consumed in one sitting. Can you guess what he said? 13!! I was blown away by that. I bet the person cheated.
