  • I would actually call the dr. I think you should be fine since you have had chicken pox before. But I would call just to be safe.

  • It can be very dangerous when you are pregnant. I would definitely call your Dr first thing in the morning.

  • call doctor...
    If they have the chicken pox it is normal associated with a fever

  • If you've had them, you will probably be okay, but call your OB in the am, to find out for sure. Then call the ped just to make sure that's what you're dealing with.
