Definately have a chat with your gp. I guess another concern is if you are exposed to cp by somebody else once you have conceived too.

Thanks for all the replies ladies, I'm at work & spraying Glen 20 like a mad woman. Does anyone know if it is still safe to have the chicken pox vaccine this close to ttc? I worry that if it is really dangerous to get the pox when your pregnant, what about having the vaccine in my system? I have already put ttc off for such a long time, I don't really want to delay it again.
I just found out my co-worker did catch it & has been ill for 3 days, she has not been at work. I feel really betrayed for her not telling me as I told her to text me even if she got symptoms. I am going to the doctors tonight to get the blood test for immunity. We have already been ttc as my co-worker told me that the doc said if she had not shown symptoms yet (not long after my OP) then she wouldn't get it. Pfft!
Try not to worry, chances are you won't get pregnant the first month anyway. Go see your doctor. If you do get it then just delay ttc for a month or two.
That's so rude of your coworker. Hope the doctor fives you good news & your clear to continue ttc.
Why don't you just go see your Dr & get a blood test to check your immunity? Put your mind at ease - you may already have sufficient levels.
You should do this anyway if your planning on ttc. There are other things you need to be vaccinated against. Speaking from experience, I didn't get a blood test before falling pregnant & turned out I had no immunity to Rubella (German measles). So besides my Dr giving me a serving, I spent the first 3 months having to be extremely careful!
Also just because your co workers child has CP, doesn't mean that she has it or that she will be passing it on. If on the other hand she does come down with CP, then I'd be staying away as a precaution.
I wouldn't get too stressed otherwise!
