When I took our daughter to the pediatrician yesterday there was a girl there who had chickenpox. We didn't play or shake hands, but you never know what she could have touched or sneezed on, etc. I had them as a child, but I know that sometimes you can get them more than once. I also know that chickenpox before 20 weeks can cause birth defects that are incompatible with life.
What should I do?

I'd suggest calling your OB and having them to a blood titer to see if you still have the immunity. . . In my doc's office it is one of the standard tests they want when ever you are pregnant.
