    had the flu jab today as im pregnant and was terrified by all the scaremongery stuff in neswpapers.

    was grand after it but my arm feels a bit weird now, like someone punched me and i have a dead arm, it feels very strange. the nurse said it might feel a bit off and may have some redness.

    no redness, just the weird dead arm feeling like when i was a kid and my brother used to punch me.

    has anyone else on here whos pregnant had this? how did you feel afterwards?

    the nurse also said i may feel a bit fluey in a day or two, hoping not as i had flu already a few weeks ago.


    had mine on friday. Sore arm 4 few days but that was it!


    Got it on Wed, and my arm was sore until Saturday. Had an awful headache all day Friday- apart from that, no other side effects. Feel fine now 🙂


    My doctor advised me against it said it is not necessary he said if he was a woman he would not recommend it.
    I hope your all good girls be sure to drink plenty of water.
    Best of luck with your pregnancies.

    Enjoy 😆


    For anyone who is against the swine flu jab have a look at this…. heartbreaking
