Hello! I’m 14 weeks pregnant with my first baby and just wanted to ask some advice. My husband is due to visit our nieces this weekend but my BIL has told us that they are probably in the incubation period for chicken pox at the moment. Both DH and I have had chicken pox but I just wondered if it is worth him being exposed to it and possibly bringing it back with him. What do you think? Many thanks for any advice.
Very likely you are immune, though in rare cases immunity can be weak or wear off. But if it's just him visiting, it's very unlikely you both have weak enough immunity for him to get it again and then pass it on to you, so very likely it's fine. That said, I apparently had chicken pox 4 times according to my mum. I certainly remember having it multiple times, so it is possible, but probably unlikely if you've not gotten it again yet.
I've had chicken pox 3 times. 2nd and third just as bad as eachother. First time I was a tot so don't remember. My bil is deaf in one ear and blind in one eye because my mil got chicken pox when she was pregnant. Personally I would avoid until incubation period has gone.
