When you are pregnant, your immune system is lowered slightly so your body won't reject your developing baby. This makes you more likely to catch an illness like the flu. Plus, you're at increased risk of complications from the flu. That's why it's especially important to get a flu shot during pregnancy. If you think you have flu symptoms, call your doctor right away to see if you need to get started on antiviral medicine.
Call Doctor If:
- You think you have flu symptoms.
- You become dehydrated.
