My nephew came over yesterday and he was running a fever of 101.8. My brother called this morning and said he has the flu. I didn't have any contact with him and stayed away, but I'm terrified of getting the flu. I'm a FTM and pretty much paranoid half the time that I'm going to somehow hurt LO.
So, what are the chances of me catching it from him? Any tips to stay heathly?
Disinfect your home. Wash your hand frequently. Get a flu shot.
GL! I hope you don't get sick!
Definitely don't take an extra PNV daily. They contain fat-soluble vitamins which can be toxic if they accumulate. But yes, washing your hands, plenty of liquids (apple juice, orange juice), and plenty of rest are all great suggestions!

CougFan:Actual influenza, diagnosed by a doctor? Because people really throw that word around. So it might not be that serious. I had influenza with my last pg and while it was a miserable week it turned out okay. At least you have a heads up so you know to check in with Dr. if you start feeling sick.
Yes. He was diagnosed by his doctor this morning. They caught it early with him. I'm keeping a check on how I feel. So hopefully everything will be fine.
