Flu is commonly found in children, and they are easily contagious when there is a contact with an infected person.
One very essential symptom of pregnancy is the morning sickness, which is accompanied with vomiting and high degree of nausea.

Most cases, it will subside after three months; and in some cases, it can persist till the time of delivering. The following are symptoms of the flu: cough, cold, fever, muscle and joint pains leading to great weakness, and severe headache.
Flu and pregnancy are entirely different things. Some people can get the flu because of a simple cold virus that has escalated. People who have the flu may experience both cough and colds. There are also instances when they feel that their bones hurt.
They may feel uncomfortable because they cannot decide if they are too hot or too cold. Some of them d not have appetites because they can barely taste the food. , and this may happen when a sperm fertilizes a mature egg during the process of having sex. Pregnancy will last for nine months and will produce a baby.
