Never a dull moment...(m/c ment. not mine)

Ugh, got a call this am that my niece, who we spent Friday/sat with probably had/has fifth's disease. Chances are slim to contract it and high that I am immune already but still a little worried. Had a blood test this morning and hoping to get results tomorrow but for sure Weds. Hubs is pretty worried and SIL feels really bad. Also, my nieces pedi said, in front of my niece, that it can cause m/c and the earlier in the pregnancy the more likely to m/c so my 11yo niece is freaking out that she gave me something that could hurt the baby. My SIL had a m/c before their last baby so my niece knows what it is.Grrr I am so irritated at her pedi for saying that in front of her. Praying for immunity!

Got results this morning. Do not have the virus but I am not immune. Doc said incubation is 4-14 days so we are keeping an eye on my kids as well as my other niece who also got sick. The initial symptoms are cold like so its hard to tell if its fifths until a rash appears. If my other niece or any of my kids get it we will re test in a few weeks. Hopefully nobody else shows symptoms though. Overall good news!
