Well they found the first case of swine flu in my town they said he has since recovered and in voluntary isolation. My problem is how many people did he come in contact with before discovering he had the flu. My family had the stomach flu last week and it seemed like once one person got over it another one of us caught it. I've been sanitizing everything with lysol disinfecting spray. Back to the point I have a five and three year old and Im two weeks away from delivering my third child. Am I being too paranoid if I keep my five year old home from school because I know this swine flu has been discovered in my town. I mean childrens amune systems arent as strong as an adult and I seen how fast the stomach flu spread in my home and this swine flu is still new. My gut instinct tells me to just keep him home but I just dont know what to do. Please give me your input.

I would do whatever you think is best...I wouldnt call it being "too paranoid" by any means either..especially since you have little ones AND are preg..IMO you can't be too careful ya know...You could call your doc, voice your concerns and see what he/she suggests...
