They were diagnosed today and I saw them last Thursday and every work day before that (not Friday as I was off work for my 12w scan).

but usually (not always but generally) the measles and mumps test is just a "detected" or "not detected" result.
I check immunisation records for staff pre employment and I really see a figure for measles and mumps.

Exposed to measles
It's spread via respiratory secretions.
They could have been infectious when you saw them however if they weren't coughing and sneezing it would lower their risk of transmission.
The prodromal illness before the rash is usually 2 to four days. This and 4 days after the rash appears is the infectious period.
Good news is unlike rubella a maternal infection does not cause congenital malformations.
But given you are only 26, I'd like your odds that you still have immunity from your vaccines.
TBH, I rarely see people with low/no measles immunity.
