Hi all

Hi Duckworth

There's a little bit of info about it in this thread PREGNANCY & HEALTH - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Hi- go and mention it to your midwife. They can do some bloods to check your immunity to it, and may offer you more regular monitoring/scans if you are non-immune.

Hey....good to reassure yourself by seeing GP. It is something that carries a small risk in the early stages of preg but chances are, since it is so common in children, that you either had it yourself when you were younger or, since you are a primary teacher, have been exposed to it before and may would therefor have antibodies...your GP can test and tell you if you are.
I was exposed to it when I was 8 weeks preg this time, but I had slapped cheek myself last year, as my kids caught it through nursery...little germ magnets!

Hi girls
I saw doctor and she didn't seem that concerned at all, said there was no risk at all. I also phone NHS direct who waffled on about slap cheek and there could be a small risk.
While i decided i must of already had it myself as i have taught other children before with it. So hopefully i should be immune to it.
It is scary worrying about eveything, but like people say you can't live in a bubble for 9 months!!!
