    Hi everyone

    Has anyone ever had chickenpox while pregnant? My 2 kids have had them over the past 3 weeks and now it's passed onto me. I never had them as a child, I had injections about 2 weeks ago for added protection because I was in contact with the virus. There doesn't seem to be much information online, midwives haven't gave a huge amount of information but they want to see me as soon as the spots have scabbed over.

    Hoping for some happy ending experiences, thanks

    Hi I called mw a month ago as it was going around my school. She didn't offer me any protection but said if I had it as a child I should be ok. I didn't catch it luckily but if you feel you have not received the information just call them and say you want more info. X

    I managed to get one who was lovely and really listened. Just to keep an eye out for infected spots, symptoms of pneumonia and if baby starts moving less to go in for monitoring. I'm happy with movements etc just I know there are risks involved when having the pox while pregnant. Thanks ladies x
