YANMD-Filter: Going for my first ever prenatal exam (@ 8 weeks) and will most likely be encouraged to get the H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine. Should I?

I am in my late twenties and am pregnant with my first child. I have never had a flu shot before. I have heard all about how people, specifically pregnant women, should get the swine flu vaccine when it's available. I also have heard that the vaccine may be more dangerous than the flu itself.
Normally I would probably pass on the vaccine but since I'm pregnant I do not want to do anything (or not do anything) that will put my baby at risk. What's a worried first time mom to do?
