I have been in contact with a little girl whom has Parvovirus (slapped cheek), I am 8+2wk pregnant. 60% of adults have had it but never known. I dont know if i have had it, but the chances are high given my job. (nanny) I am having my bloods done on Mon. Has anyone had this or come into contact with it whilst pregnant. What was the outcome?
A child at the CM got it and gave it to DD when I was pregnant with DS (2nd trimester) -- midwife was really unconcerned and didn't even do bloods ( in retrospect)
Now I may well be immune and it all be a total coincidence, but pregnancy went high risk a couple of weeks after that. DS is fine but he nearly wasn't and I'm less than impressed with my midwife's reaction (it was accident that I got further monitoring that pointed to a problem). So don't worry, but get tested all the same.
My DS had it when I was about 4 weeks. I'm now 15 weeks, had 2 bloods done, both came back to say no recent infection but I'm not immune so I've to be careful not to come into contact with it (especially weeks 12-20 apparently). At my 12 week scan they were looking for signs of infection but all OK. Midwives and hospital have both taken it quite seriously and I had an appointment with the hospital consultant although it was not really necessary as the bloods were clear. Must depend where you are (I'm in Scotland). Fingers crossed you are fine, let us know how you get on.
Ive just had my bloods done 2day, So hopefully they'll come back in nxt couple of week. Ive got my booking in appointment in 10days so mayb have results then? Or 2week like most said. Fingers crossed x
hi i had it at 5 weeks it lasted for 3 weeks i didnt realise i had it unill ny niece came out in the rash i had my booking blood test so they checked those and before those results came back my midwife did another blood test i then found out that i had had it, i spoke to my midwife and she told me that between 10 and 20 weeks it was the most dangerous but she doesnt know how it would affect me as i had it so early in pregnancy she also told me that i had a 50/50 chance of losing the baby till 28 weeks i have a scan booked for tuesday and a scan again on the 16th my 12 week scan which is with a consultant any way and im also being refered to a fetal med department but i dont know what they are going to do all in all im not really sure whats going on! i will let you know
