    Best not!! I weren't sure if I had them or not either, so I had a blood test after being in contact with my niece who had them. The test showed I hadn't, so I had an injection, which would protect me for a while.

    Ask your midwife. My daughter got it last week. I phone my mw straight away. She looked at my blood results from my earlier bloods and saw straight away whether I was immune. I was so had nothing to worry about, but think there are things you can do if you're not!

    I work in a school and a child in my class had them and midwife said best to avoid if possible, but much more important to steer clear if you've never had them apparently. I would get your immunity checked at your GPs. xxx

    Hey hun if you have had it before you will be fine, if not I would be cautious. I was around my best friend when she had it and ive had them in childhood and I was perfectly fine. xxx
