Flu affects mom: Pregnant women have a suppressed immune system which inhibits their ability to fight off infections like the flu. The fetus is at risk because the mom is at risk when infected. The best thing to do is to get an annual flu vaccine. ...Read more

I am pregnant and my son just got the diagnosis of walking pneumonia. Should I be worried for myself?

Unlikely to be pbm: Your son's pneumonia is likely caused by germs from his own airway that settled into his lungs. Most are not particularly contagious.(but practice regular hand washing) your fetus is relatively insulated against simple illnesses you might catch unless it has a blood phase like a flu where it could pass to the infant via the placenta. Your catching a pneumonia would not automatically hurt baby. ...Read more

I have pneumonia I am on promrthazine methylpred  and amox/k clav will these meds cause false positive pregnant test or should I stop taking the med?

NO but talk with Dr.: You are probably pregnant if the test if positive. Untreated pneumonia can be harmful for your babies and so you definitely should not stop antibiotics, and Augmentin is a pregnancy category b drug (felt to be safe in pregnancy for good indications). You should talk with your doctor about the relative benefits and risk of the steroids and cough suppressants. ...Read more
