Fifth S Disease

I am a Kindergarten teacher and just yesterday discovered two of my students have Fifth's Disease. The only way to diagnosis it is after they are already contagious. I am 26 weeks pregnant and called my doctor. Had to go for a blood test. I will not have results for four days. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks a bunch!

Yes, my nephew had Fifth's disease, when I was pregnant with my third son. My doctor told me not to worry unless my other children came down with symptoms. Even then he said not to worry, rarely does it affect an unborn child.

Hi Marcy: I too am a teacher. Today I am 30 weeks, but during my first round of blood work they determined that I was immune to Fifth's Disease because I had already had it. You too have probably built an immunity, which is great! Good luck.
