So I've been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with measles and so has my daughter (16 months).
What are the risks to me and my daughter? (I'm 13 weeks along).

Oh god, I would have freaked out as I am 37 weeks along. If your daughter has been vaccinated, she will still probably get them, but hopefully not a bad case. You being pregnant, I would probably get to the doctor asap and get some advice, just in case. I know that German measles can be deadly to pregnant women, I assume that measles can also be harmful. Seek some medical advice just to be sure.

I would head to your GP to discuss. Try not to panic there's nothing you can do now to change what has happened. Hugs xx

Head to your docs asap hun, depending on your immunity you may be ok, but if your immunity is low then they need to give you an immunisation to counter act it and it needs to be done ASAP. Have you had your first round of blood tests for this pregnancy to check all of your levels and immunity etc?

Did they check your immunity when you first got pregnant Mama, or when you were pregnant with your Dd? I'd still head to the GP as a precaution but I think you both should probably be ok assuming your immunity was fine and her 12 month vax helps.

They did a blood test to check my immunity at the doctors just then. I know my immunity to rubella was low when I was pregnant with DD.

If you have no immunity to measles and you were in close contact with someone with measles there is a good chance you will contract it as its highly contagious. In theory though you should have some immunity from your childhood vax, although you really need 2 MMR vaccines to be protected.
Your 16th old may be able to have her 18mth vax early, but discuss with your GP

Gp said he wasn't concerned about DD, more concerned about me. He said to just get her next vax when it's due.
