Stop worrying! Mumps doesn't affect unborn babies, even if you caught it. And given that your friend doesn't have mumps then the risk has gone from zero to less than zero!
Now relax. (and don't be angry with your friend - nothing to be angry about)

I promise you this is true! A good way to look up information is to use Google - type in pregnancy and mumps and you will see lots of reassuring information saying exactly what I said.
