I just want to post this for all pregnant women who might be considering getting the flu vaccination. PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE MAKING THAT DECISION! I wish I had. Here is my story…I recently underwent IVF and transferred two perfect blasts. At 14dpo my beta was 365. At 18dpo beta was 1577. Dr. said levels were awesome and were hinting towards multiple pregnancy. I was later advised by my nurse to get the flu shot. I was hesitant and told her that I had gotten the vaccination in 2009 and it made me sick for over a week so I really didn’t want it. She told me that it is advisable for pregnant women to get the vaccine. WHY DID I LISTEN??? Thursday, November 10th I received the Flu/H1N1 shot (I told the pharmacist that I was pregnant). I started cramping, spotting and had lower back pain that same night. I immediately called the clinician on call. I was put on pelvic rest for the remainder of the night. Friday, I did not have any apparent bleeding. I went to visit my acupuncturist for treatment. Two days later, Sunday night, I started bleeding a lot and cramping again. The following day I had an ultrasound at 5 weeks 4 days pregnant. There were two sacs but only one of the sacs contained a fetus and one heartbeat beating strong at 107 bpm. The baby was measuring on schedule at 5 weeks 5 days. Still my doctor was concerned about the bleeding and m/c of the first baby so he put me on bed rest for the next couple of days. I had a complete miscarriage that same night. I am so heartbroken. If only I would have followed my gut and not gotten the vaccination. Never again!
