I have been thinking a lot about a “hot topic” in the news lately – the whole H1N1 vaccine. They keep saying that pregnant women will be on the top of the list to get the vaccine because they are one of the groups more affected. They are talking about it right now on Good Morning America and focusing specifically on pregnant women. They are reporting women who are going to get the vaccine, women who are hesitant, and women who will not be getting it. There are even some pediatricians that are telling their patients not to get it. Of course the CDC is saying it’s perfectly safe. I’m not getting into the whole vaccination debate, but I wanted to ask you guys in the IF community what you think. I am not sure what I think. I mean if we are trying so hard, waiting so long to get pregnant, and injecting ourselves with crazy drugs just to get pregnant would you want to risk getting a vaccine that might mess everything up and cause harm to the baby or to lose the baby? I am just not sure. Then again I would want to be protected. Though I never get the annual flu vaccine.
