FIRST, if this is the wrong forum for this, I'm sorry, and feel free to move this thread. Just looking for some info.
I don't know for sure, but my five year old has a lot of measles-like symptoms - white spots appearing inside her mouth, spots appearing on her face (and it's not chicken pox, she's already had them at 3 and quite severely), aches and pains, and conjunctivitis.
I am considering taking her to a doctor, though I don't know what they would be able to do besides confirm or disconfirm (is that a word?).
My main concern is that I am 35 weeks pregnant. My blood tests early on showed immunity to German measles but they don't test for immunity from normal measles.
Should I be worried? I'm not worried about my daughter - I'd be very happy for her to get measles and have life time immunity! But I am a bit worried about myself and my baby. The internet is full of scary warnings of miscarriage, etc for pregnant mums exposed to measles.
Any advice? Should I contact a doctor? I can stand up for my decision not to vaccinate the kids, so not worried about the badgering I'll get if it IS measles, but is there still a good reason for having her seen? And is there even better reason for ME and baby bump to get seen??
