Hi all. I'm on my 11th week and waiting for my 12-13 week scan. My midwife asked the other day if I'd been exposed to any viruses and I said no but today someone who works with me says she just came from the doctors who told her she has tonsillitis? She's been at work since she fell ill which means I have been exposed to her I guess. I do have a cough/cold but I think (touch wood) it's just a cold. But can baby be hurt if I've been exposed to this girl's virus? I looked it up and it is contagious for a certain period.
