In brief: No problem

As long as it is the inactivated injection and not the live intranasal vaccine I see no problem with it.
Your immune system reacts to a variety of germs during pregnancy and the "stress" it may trigger is no more than it already deals with. Having had 2 pregnant moms die in my town from flu complications in a single year I am acutely aware of the need.

In brief: No

This is my opinion.
Other mds may differ. I strongly believe that this puts metabolic stress on you and thus to your baby.
