Dear Pregnant
Usually flu would not affect the baby, unless you really get very high fever. Avoid medications, exept for panado, drink lots of water, and steam yourself to loosen phlegm and open the nasal passages.
See http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/wha/umpgprob05.htm
If you have a temp higher than 38 degrees celcius, or you cough thick yellow or green phlegm, please see your doctor
