Can you get the flu 1 week after being exposed to it?
My baby threw up 2 times 1 week ago. He never acted sick. Now, a week later, I am feeling sick. Did I get it from him?

That sounds about the right time period, a week to ten days.
Sorry, but I think your little one gave you a present.

Yes. On average, a viral infection takes seven to ten days from initial contact to the patient feeling symptoms of the illness.

Incubation period for things like a cold, flu, stomach virus are anywhere from 5 to 12 days, give or take a few. You could have gotten it from him, or any place else that you have come into contact with others or things that others touch. Normally, germs and virus can only live a few hours on hard surfaces, less on things like towels or the couch. But when you touch something that has a virus on it, then touch your face, you can become infected. The virus can enter your body via the nose and it's mucus lining, or your eyes. This is one of the reasons washing our hands is so important to prevent the spread of illness. If you can wash with soap and hot water (not cold, but not scalding hot, comfortable will do) do so, but if you are somewhere that you can't get to water, use antibacterial hand wipes or antibacterial waterless gel hand cleaner. (Like germX)......
