  • It is usually more dangerous if you are earlier on in your pregnancy. I got that when I was near the end of my pregnancy from my nephew. His Dr. told my SIL that I should contact my OB Dr.. I had an ultrasound just to be on the safe side and everything was fine. So yeah, I would call your Dr. in the morning and see what he wants to do.

  • I don't think so, This is one of the diseases that kids get but adults don't. I wouldn't lose sleep over it but check with your doctor tomorrow. In the meantime, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer regularlys.

  • Adults can get this. My mom used to work in a daycare and caught it from one of the kids. I don't think it'll hurt your baby though. Just call your doctor in the morning...that's about all you can do.
