    Default Exposed to german measles with low immunity

    Does anyone know if having a low immunity (34) would be enough to protect me against german measles?
    I was sitting next a toddler at school yesterday and have just found out he has german measles.

    I have a Dr appt at 3pm to get blood tests done, but I am seriously freaking the hell out since I lost my last baby at 20weeks from parvovirus and I am now 17 weeks !

    I think you should be fine my DS got Measles when I was 5 weeks and I have low immunity and he has been immunised. He was the only member of the family who got it and I looked after him the whole time.
