I didnt get to check with my doctor today so I'm going to try calling tomorrow. I was watching the Today show this morning and they had a doctor on from a hospital in NY and he said that they are recommending that the ones in the high risk category get it and one of them was women who will be pregnant during the flu season. From what they said if you get the flu while your pregnant it can cause problems and possible miscarriage. I'll let you know what my doctor says if I find anything out tomorrow.

Here's a link I found on the CDC website that talks about the vaccine shortage and who should get it. I didn't see anything about those ttc just women who are pregnant.

I saw the same clip from the morning show. I know my RE gives the flu shot to pg women. I've never had a flu shot. My father got a flu shot last year and got the flu
 
. Not sure what the ruling is if you're ttc. If it has no ill effect then I say go for it as long as it will protect you during your pg. You must think positively that you will be pg when flu season rolls around. Of course, you could always move in with Monique for flu season because the hurricanes should have stopped by then
