Need some quick, straight answers, please! smile

DH returned from PiLs' on Thurs night quite ill. He threw up in the street outside the station, couldn't eat dinner, went to bed at 8pm, and slept till Friday afternoon.

He's up and doing today although not 100%. Hasn't been ill again.

We are due to have friends over tomorrow, one of whom is pg. I have warned her but she hasn't replied yet. On the assumption she still wants to come, is it safe?

I've given her the option to back out but should I just make an executive decision to cancel, in case? (She is 12 weeks, if that matters.)

Think I'd cancel, tbh.

It's up to her. I'd be pretty insulted if you ordered me not to come when I thought it was fine.

I'd cancel with all of them - it isn't dangerous for your pg friend, but it won't be pleasant for anyone iyswim...

leave it a week IIWY

You are being v considerate. By tomorrow it's very unlikely dh will still be infectious. I would have had no worries coming over when I was pregnant.

I'd let her make her own decision.

DH reckons he is no longer infectious, but I was considering just saying to everyone that he didn't feel up to it. Just in case.

But yes, should probably not 'nanny' - it's just it took her over a year to get pg, it is her first, if anything happened.......

SlightlySuperior is this some type of oneupmanship????? wink

Does the 48hr rule apply here? I'd give her the facts and give her the choice.

48 hours since last sick and all will be ok - so schools etc say
