DS came down with it when I was pregnant with DD. Luckily he had a mild case (blisters on his palms and soles but none in his mouth), DD and I weren't affected at all.

I don't know about pregnancy issues with it, but I do know that most adults do not get it because they have already developed immunity. Even if you don't remember having it when you were little there is a strong possibility that you had a mild, undiagnosed case at some point in your childhood.
