trying to decide if i should get a flu shot this year. did you know they grow the virus in eggs? and they contain mercury as a preservative - doesn't the dr tell us to stay away from mercury-laden things? i have never had a flu shot [i take a more holistic approach to my health] and have a very strong immune system. now that i am 14 weeks pregnant, im not sure if i should get one. of course my dr told me i should, but i am also very aware of the side effects, etc.
moms who have and who haven't, what were your experiences?
