Im late but this could be helpful to some1 else, ad long as u had ur shotsthe unborn chil4 is fine and if u have a newborn and is breastfeeding ur baby is also fine if ur shot$ are updated. This is info from my midwife. My 1yr old caught it after I had my newborn luckly I was breastfeeding.

Your unborn baby should be fine as you have already had them. If you were a few weeks pregnant then this would be serious. Speak to your midwife to put your mind at ease.
