H1N1 layout

This is what I did today. I figured this pregnancy is more than just belly photos right? A very simple layout for my pregnancy album about something National going on right now. Caution: Depending on what alphabet you use H1N1 can look like Hiney :)


Journaling: H1N1 is also known as the Swine Flu. In the past year it has become a very hot, relevant flu strain. Since I’m pregnant it puts me at greater risk of complications if I were to acquire the virus. Pregnant women are 4 times more likely to be hospitalized from the virus. The decision to get the vaccine has become a hot topic. Many people feel the vaccine isn’t ready or safe. Other people,including my O/B and the CDC highly recommend getting it. I did alot of research on both sides. I talked it over with your Dad. I wanted to make sure I made the best informed decision for your health and mine. Since my next appt isn’t for 3 more weeks I called Dr. Connelly this morning to discuss it with him. When the nurse called me back she told me that she was just about to call me. The vaccine just became available at my Dr’s office yesterday. They didn’t want me waiting until my next appointment to get the vaccine. Since there are so many current cases of H1N1 they want me in right away. So this afternoon I went to the clinic, rolled up my sleeve and got the H1N1 vaccine. I came to the conclusion that I couldn’t live with myself if something happened to us that I could have prevented. 10/16/09
