I'm 6 weeks pregnant.. and was around my nice today who has fifth disease so were my 3 and 1 yr old girl...Afraid I may get it and harm the unborn baby..

my research states it causes animeia in the unborn fetus and can cause death and more likely in the first half of pregnancy...

  • Normally children between the age of 5-15 get it.. it is a viral thing they get a rash all over.. looks like they have been slapped ... the cheeks are more red than the trunk and limbs ... But can be faital to a fetus
