Chickenpox, pregnancy and birthday parties

I'm going to a birthday party on friday with my children. One of the other invited guests include a child whose brother has just come down with chicken pox, so it's likely she's a carrier.

I'm 7 weeks pregnant and the host has therefore very kindly asked if I mind the little girl coming. I had CP as a child and was fine when my boys had it last year. Is there any risk at all involved in us both going to the party, esp. given that I'm unlikely to be in physical contact with this child?
