Has anyone been exposed to this in their pregnancy? I just got a not from my sons school that they have found a few cases of "slapped cheek" aka the fifth disease in school and any pregnant women should notify their doctor. Im 17 weeks and Im pretty sure I was never previously exposed to this before this pregnancy....i have an appointment next week for a regular appointment. Should I be trying to get in earlier bc of this???
you could always call your OB's office, see what they say. I don't really know that you can do anything about it now, other than avoid the children that have it.
would just call and notify the dr and see what they say :D
What's fifth disease?
Quoting BeccaSauraus:" What's fifth disease?"
It's the fifth most common childhood disease. :) Seriously!
It's a virus, Parvo I think... causes a rash and fever.
