If I am in my 3rd trimester and I get a flu shot, will my baby have same the flu antibodies that I get?

Update:

I read on a pregnancy website that women who are in their 3rd trimester and do not receive a flu shot are 5x more likely to end up in the hospital with a respitory related illness...

    I hope not.

    Do NOT get vaccinated.

    A vaccinated person is MORE likely to get a disease than a non-vaccinated person. The whole theory of vaccination is flawed. It causes a weakening of the immune system thus making those who are innoculated more susceptible to disease.

    There are so many awful side effects to vaccination that it should be considered extremely dangerous.

    Just sit back and think for a while.

    Is there any sense in injecting a disease directly into your body.

    We have been subjected to an awful mind control program to enable the drug manufacturers to make a fortune.

    If you go to the vaccination liberation web page, at

    http://www.vaclib.org/exemption.htm

    You will find all the forms necessary to provide exemption for your child.

    Generally if you are breastfeeding your baby gets all of your antibodies from vaccines, etc. for the first 6 months.

    I'm not a fan of the flu shot though and think it's pretty silly. Basically they try to predict what the strain of flu will be- there is no telling that they will be right. Many people actually get sick after getting the shot. Not something I would want to risk in the 3rd trimester!

    that website is a crock of crap. when i was pregnant i didnt get a flu shot and i was just fine. and ive never known a woman who got seriously ill while she was pregnant just because she didnt get the flu shot. i dont get the flu shot because i was in the army and they injected me with enough crap, i dont need anything else and ive found that i actually get sick less often when i dont get the shot. the shot will not give your baby the antibodies that you get, it will just protect you from that strain of the flu, but you are still prone to all the other strains.

    Make sure thats what you want to do... I recieved the flu shot in my 3rd trimester was sicker then a dog for a week after, i dont believe in any shots for kids or adults...

    But the flu shot is a waste.

    WHEN GETTING A FLU SHOT, THEY ARE SHOOTING THE VIRUS INTO YOU. I DO NOT SUGGEST THAT YOU TAKE THAT SHOT. AND YES YOUR BABY WILL BE AFFECTED BY WHATS PUT INTO YOUR BODY.
