My daughter has just got pregnant through IVF after trying for 4 years. She had flu over Christmas and is going for a scan this Friday. Am so worried that it might have affected the baby. We have autism in the family (my nephew). Really am trying hard not to be an over anxious mum so have not said anything about this to her.
I got the flu while pregnant. The gps and midwifes said it was not a problem for the baby. The only problem for the mum is that most of the flue medicines are nor reccomended during pregnancy so she will have a runny nose for a while but that is it.
I had flu while pregnant and the baby was fine. Yes he does have autism now but he was not born with it, he was born perfectly healthy. Something else caused that. Flu while pregnant doesn't cause autism. It is mainly you at risk.
