Influenza and Pregnancy?

acbernard posted:
I am supposed to go to my family's house on the 1st of January to celebrate the holidays, but the problem is my brother has influenza B as of thursday and friday (Dec. 27th & 28th) and my mother got him and the rest of the family on Tamiflu since friday. My brother is feeling fine now but I am worried to even go there and be exposed to them since I am 14 weeks pregnant and still need to get the flu shot. I also worried because I was exposed to him from Dec. 21st- 23rd. I really want to see my family but I have heard that the flu is really dangerous while pregnant? What should I do?
