    I always thought that it was dangerous for pregnant woman to be around someone with chicken pox, however last week at playgroup they had a notice up saying about a chicken pox outbreak and not to worry as the risk to pregnant woman is very low !

    Not mean Layla

    I took Chloe round every kid who had it and she just would not catch it,I think she must carry it as my sisters child caught after being near Chloe only and Chloe just spent the day before with kids that were in the catching stage.

    I woudl try and let him get it if you can as easier now than when you have baby around.
