Hand, foot and mouth disease

My 3 yo and my 1 yo have HFMD. They are acting just fine and I'm sure will get through it with no complications. I'm assuming they got it from the childcare at the YMCA or maybe church. Anyways, I am also 9 weeks pregnant. There is no treatment or vaccine for HFMD. It typically affects children 10 and under. I am hoping that I will not even have to worry about it at all (hoping not to contract it), but there is a chance. From what I've researched, there is normally no effect on the baby, though in rare cases it could lead to miscarriage. Has anyone gone through this during pregnancy? Either your kids having it and you not catching it or you having it?
