    Just bathing Rebecca with OH, she has loads of lumpy red spots on her back, mum said it looks like chicken pox. I am pregnant, ear;y stage, read up on internet-doesn't look good.

    Will it 100% definite affect baby? Limb and neurological abnormalities?

    Ahh don't know what to do! :?

    i dont no hun sorry!

    i was 13 weeks pregnant round my brother with chicken pox i was told it was fine. i also caught mumps while preg and was told i would be fine.

    i remember tyler having chicken pox because i took him the docs and at the same time i confirmed my pregnancy with the doc

    ild call nhs direct they are great, ask them about wether or not rebecka needs to see a doc and if your unborn baby is at risk

    You should be protected then but I would perhaps phone NHS to make sure. Hope all is ok, and that Rebecca gets better soon.

    And you can't say she caught it off Jack :lol:

    I got told by the doctor i saw with jack that if they have had it before (pregnant women) then they SHOULD be ok but keep them away to be on the safe side.

    Hope she is ok hun

    My sister's OH had chicken pox when my sister was pregnant, and she was told all the time the baby is in the womb the baby will be OK, if you have had chicken pox before as you should technically be immune and therefore be protecting the baby........so try not to worry babe, but you should be fine! I hope it clears up for her soon :( x

    In early pg with Alisha a girl at work came in with shingles. I knew it was contagious and panicked. Boss phoned nhs direct and dr honed back. You are at risk only if you have not had chicken pox. I wa unsure so they pulled my booking bloods at hospital (had only had them done that week ) and they checked for immunity and phoned me back within 6 hrs and i was immune so i was fine. DS got chicken pox a few weeks later and was told cos i was imune baby would be fine. For own piece of mind speak to m/w and i'm sure they wolud check your immunity. :hugs: Hope lo gets better soon.

    hi ladies,

    Thank you all for your advice, apparently the spots arent cpox, but part of a viral infection. When asked why they now have heads they couldn't answer!!

    So watch this space as I aint convinced.

    Thanks again for all your help xxxxxxxxxx

    when i was 10wks i was looking after my friends son for a few days when he came down with chixpox, i went straight to my hospital consultant and he said point blank that as ive ha it as a child i was in NO RISK whatsoever. so if your not convinced its a viral thing i would try not to worry.

    hope this helps put you mind at rest?
