He got rash yesterday (Saturday) and I saw him on tues and thurs
I had chicken pox when I was seven.
Need to go to dr tomorrow and see what they say

I believe the worst case scenario is first trimester when all the cells are splitting and dividing etc.
Hopefully at 20 weeks you might be in the clear, but definitely go to the doctor and see what they say.
You're most likely immune - but best to check it out!

Same thing happened to me when I was pregnant with DD2. I went to my OB and can't remember exactly what he said but I recall him saying if I was closer to my due date then it might be a problem but not midway.

Step away from Dr Google!
I'm sure it will be fine. If you had it at 7 you should be ok. I don't know whether looking at it from this perspective is helpful or makes it worse, but i'm sure you come into contact every day with people who have all sorts of diseases and you wouldn't even know it.
It's so hard not to panic, I know. When pregnant with DD, DS had a rash on his face and a slightly snotty nose- I rang my mum in a panic and got her to come and take him to the GP while I kept away from him because I thought it could be slapped cheek. if course it was just a runny nose and a random rash.
Maybe call the ED at your hospital and see what they say?
