I have learned today that I was exposed to someone with mumps two weeks ago. I only saw them in passing on two occasions, can't remember if I spoke to them or not but it would only have been in passing if I did.

I have never been immunised against mumps.

Has anyone been in this situation when pregnant? Any advice?

Have spoken to midwife and she's says nothing can be done and look out for symptoms.

Have got a bit of a cough today and feel slightly achey but I've only notice this since finding out I was exposed so hopefully all in my head...

Hoe far along are you OP?

Mumps doesn't cause any problems for the baby as far as I know but can obviously make you feel very uncomfortable...

I also was exposed to mumps when PG with DC1 but nothing happened - I can only assume that I was somehow immune to it from childhood - I remember my sister getting it but I never had any symptoms (I wanted the time off school!) so fingers crossed you are already immune!

Thanks for the reply. I'm 17 weeks. Hopefully I won't get it or like you say have some immunity from somewhere
