how pregnant is she
its in the forst three months that it may cause a problem

alos I think you would have had spots by now
if only yesterday or today
I think its 2 weeks incubation or something

Risky if she is not immune and less than 20 weeks or very close to delivery. Give her a ring and ask if she's had it.

If she is due now, don't go to see her if you think there is a chance you could have it.

Are you taking the baby? She may be incubating it. It's not unheard of for a baby to get it even if breastfed.

I had CP in pregnancy. It was grim and I was in the 'safe' period. I wouldn't go personally.
