I did, during both my PE and my PE-free pregnancies. During my PE-free pregnancy last year I got both the regular flu shot and the H1N1 shot. Both times I got preservative free, although my OBs said it wasn't necessary.

I didn't have the flu shot since I had it before I got pregnant. But, I did recently have my Tdap. But, that was after I was diagnosed with PE.

I get a flu shot every year. I got one during my PE pregnancy. I did not during my non-PE pregnancy, but that was just because of the timing (I had already gotten it before becoming pregnant though).

I did. My doctor was pretty adamant that I get one. My husband had to get one before they'd let our daughter leave the nicu, too.
