I just found out that my 18 month old has possibly been exposed to a little girl who was diagnosed with fifth disease last night. He played with her a few times during the period before the rash or fever showed up, which means she was contagious during that time. I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and I have no idea if I have ever had the virus or not. I've googled, and webmd'ed and whatnot, but I am a "bit" of a hypochodriac (diagnosed, so more then a bit lol) and I was wondering if any of you moms out there have had any experiences with fifth disease during the third trimester. Thanks

I came into contact with Fifth disease while pregnant. According to my doctor it is only a risk up to 20 weeks.
