Hiya everyone! my best friends little girl has got chicken pox! we see them most days so i know the chances of my 2 boys catching it is high, but i was wondering if there was any chance of it being dangerous to this baby? im 22 weeks and i have had chicken pox, but wether or not it can cause problems in pregnancy is something i never thought about until now! - dont want to start stressing out unless i need too! xxx

I think that because you have had CP you would be fine, I think it can only effect the baby if contracted by you in the first and last few weeks...

Agree with sparklymiaow, though if your worried contact your midwife or doctor.

If you have had chickenpox you should be ok but to be safe se GP/midwife who can check a bloodtest to make sure you are immune same thing happen to me when pregnant with DS1(3).
