I'm almost 12 weeks pregnant and at the GP's surgery today there was a man in the waiting room who may have swine flu. I was on the other side of the waiting room from him. The doors are really thin and I heard him talking to the doctor when he went in as he coughed. He's had sweats and feels achey all over. The GP told him it could be SF. He didn't cough in the waiting room and even though I saw the same doctor I didn't sit down in the chair he would have been sitting in. I was examined by the doctor on the couch. I think it's pretty unlikely that I will have caught it - just wondered what anyone else thought? TIA
What Ripey said. Hand washing is very important. Silly man going in with swine flu. Ffs, a surgery, where there are potentially immunosuppressed people. Does your surgery not have a notice up fending off coughers?
Thanks for your responses - and my hands are practically red raw from washing. There are signs about not coming to the surgery with SF but I guess if someone is stupid enough to get as far as the surgery he won't pay attention to the notices on the walls.
If it helps, three children I have taught have had it, two of my colleagues (who I share a staffroom with) have had it, my mum has had it and there is an outbreak at DC's nursery and still we haven't got it.
If it helps reassure you my bro had it and has been at home with my mum but nearly a week later and she is fine (which is good as we are visiting this weekend) She only has a small bungalow so can't get more than a m away if she wanted! They were told incubation was 5-7 days. If you go 7 days with no symptoms then you are clear from catching it from him.
no you'd be v unlucky to get it in that case, me and my 2 girls had it and my husband never got it. Also there are people around and about with symptoms that could be SF all the time that doesn't mean they have it and even if they did you'd catch it. Sure you'll be fine x
