So woke up this morning "feeling pretty good" compared to most days when i've felt extremely tired, & got the usual breakfast ready for my son. At first im sure i was seeing something strange as he kept rubbing one side of his face with his hands so when i had chance to look properly he had a Lil patch of red looking / fluid filled spots.
Trying not to panic & show the fright in my face i told him to stand up so i could see his chest & back. To my surprise there was also the same sort of small Lil patches of red/fluid filled red bumps on him.
OMG. so with today being Sunday not many G.p, or walk -in centres are open & got straight on the phone to NHS Direct. When i described the symptoms she straight away ruled it to the 1st signs of either shingles or chicken-pox. While on the phone i thought id mention the fact that im also 14wks pregnant & a Lil worried for the unborn child's health "as well as my son's of course". But she immediately asked me if i had got chicken-pox before because when u have your body / immune system is strong enough not to contract it again
Phew! "i had chicken-pox at a early age of about 6yrs old" Neverless im obviously still worried as im barely out of the "anything can happen stage" in pregnancy.
Has / is there any mother's out there who's been in a simular situation.
Any advice is appreciated.
