Sick as a pig today, dh absolutely fine the last few days no symptoms or signs from him. Myself, pregnant and developed sudden runs and feeling very sick. Not labour. But dh has just revealed his colleague sitting beside him has been in with with vomiting bug the last two day’s.aibu to think Is it possible this is how I caught it even though dh is symptom free?

Possible but what difference does it make now?, what was your DH supposed to do?

@AryaStarkWolf sorry I think you misinterpreted the post as I never said he should have done anything about it, nor that I was annoyed simply was it a possibility that it can be brought home even if the “contact person” is not sick themselves. For context I’m asking as he will be around a immune compromised person later and so I’m being considerate in trying to ask will it be possible to spread to them. Should have added it into my original post but figured there was no need. Thanks for the reply though!

He could've done but it's the time of the year when sickness bugs go around. You could of got it just going to the shops or bus etc

With your latest update, I wouldn't let him go to be on the safe side


MegaClutterSlut · 28/11/2019 12:17

He has been around you too so he may be contagious without any symptoms atm

I think he can still go, he just needs to wash his hands very thoroughly.

@MegaClutterSlut usually I would think that too but been on strict bed rest the last week due to blood pressure issues and haven’t been around anyone else as a result! I’m just wondering should he avoid our immune compromised relative to be safe as even if he didn’t bring it home he has been around me now! But if he did bring it home then he could pass it on again regardless if you get me! Thanks so much though I just wasn’t sure if it was only spread through active illness!

@Yummymummy2020 ah fair enough, yeah he should probably be careful about being around someone so vulnerable in that case


Looneytune253 · 28/11/2019 12:22

If he's showing no signs as long as he's washing his hands properly all should be ok but I can see why you would want to be extra cautious to your relative

I would think he's touched something the infected person has touched, not washed his hands then made you a cuppa or something?
