MRSA and pregnancy?

Hi Girls

Ok - I am going to show my complete naivety and paranoia!

We have a friends friend who is coming over tomorrow evening after they finish work for X mas evening and boxing day breakfast.

The person is a carer for someone who is in hospital, and they have MRSA, and may have to lose their leg because of it.

My question is... am I putting my baby at risk if I pick the person up from the hospital when they finish work and when they come back to ours for the evening?!?!

I currently have a UTI and a cold on its way, so feeling a little immune compromised.

Any advice would be gratefully received - as I feel really awful and horrible at the moment!!

thanks all

Merry Christmas too and wishing all mummies and bumps a happy and healthy 2011!!!
