It sounds like a long while ago for them to still be infectious. I think you're at your most infectious before the spots even appear and if she didn't have it you're almost certainly ok. I'd ring your GP though or NHS Direct because you'll only fret about it otherwise! I would worry but rationally I'm sure there's nothing to worry about.

Big congrats on your BFP you must be so excited. We're about a week apart, bet you can't wait for your 1st scan, I'm counting down the days!

I would try very hard not to worry, if you had the kind of parents that took your for all your vaccinations then the chances are that you are have been immunised against measles. Also your hairdresser will be too so she is unlikely to have caught it from him then passed it on to you. When you go to the hospital for your first scan, you will have a blood test for measles immunity but you can contact your GP or midwife and ask if this can be done earlier.
