Please tell me if I'm being overly paranoid about this.
My DH's ex-wife had to go to hospital the other night as she needed an injection to stop her throwing up (stomach virus). She got a call the next day asking her and her boyfriend to come in and have an injection because there was a baby with measles in the emergency dept at the same time she was.
Even though my step-sons didn't go to the hospital with her, she was home with them for almost a full day before receiving the jab for measles. Technically she's the only one that's been exposed to the virus, but if she picked it up at all she's potentially spread the germs around her house - which could lead to either of the boys getting it. One of the boys has a weak immune system as it is.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with measles?? I know it can take around 14 days for it to manifest after exposure, so DH has rearranged the boys usual weekend stays to basically quarantine them. I'm 14 weeks pregnant and not sure what my immunity is like to measles as I haven't had an immunisation since my early teens.
There's an outdoor event on this weekend that I'd like to go to, but I know they'll be there and I don't want to be mean and tell them that they can't come near DH and I in case they're infectious
