Can anyone help?! I've just found out my nephew has slapped cheek syndrome and I have been in close contact with him. I have just read that women in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy should avoid all contact and I am 18 weeks on Monday. Have no symptoms now but have had a very sore throat for 2 days, 2 days ago and was feeling much more tired than normal... I'm now very scared and can't get hold of my midwife, I have rung the nhs direct but they have said it will take a few hours to come back to me. Has anyone else heard of this?
