    I had never even heard of this until I just googled it.. have you had it before? If so you might have built up an immunity.. Not sure what to suggest as it says it can last 4-5 weeks. What are the risks for baby? Is there treatment for it or do you just have to wait it out.

    What an awful situation. Sorry :hugs:

    my eldest son had this when i was pregnant with my first and all was fine, i think it is commomly around in schools and nurseries so yo may have already built up immunity but check with the doctor for piece of mind...

    I would inform your doc/mw straight away! Wen I was pregnant with my first I wasn't immune to any of those viruses but if u'v had ur bloods back u will prob have been told. I would check just to be sure as it is one for pregnant women to stay clear off!
