As if settling into life as a new mum and looking after a newborn isn't stressful enough, I've just found out my friends little girl who visited us last week and held my LO, now has chicken pox. The visit was 5 days before my friends LO's spots started appearing (which started this morning), and I've called our GP for an appointment as NHS website says if your baby is under 4 weeks old they need to be seen urgently by a GP and have a blood test to test for the infection. From what my friend said, you are only infectious for 2-3 days before spots show, so we may be lucky. But the thought of the blood test and the possibility of my LO having contracted chicken pox is making me feel sick to the stomach, I can't stop crying with worry! Has anyone else been in this situation?
