15 Weeks Pregnant and DD has chicken pox (I think!)

We found about a dozen lumpy red spots in various places on our DDs body this morning ad there have been a few cases of chicken pox around.
My question is do I take her to the walk in clinic to 1) get it confirmed and/or 2) to check that me and baby are ok?
Advice please!

Have you had it before? If so I wouldn't worry too much. If not / you are unsure they can test you for antibodies and I think give you antivirals. Can you get a phone appt for some advice?

Thanks for the reply. I think I had it as a tiny baby and have managed to make to 30 without getting so hopefully I'm ok. You just hear so much about being pregnant and chicken pox it got me a little worried. Also I didn't want to isolate y 3 yr old for no reason but her temp has just gone up do I think it may be the real thing.
I'll give OOH a call and see what they suggest. Thanks again.
