i thought my son had chicken pox when i was 8 weeks pregnant with my 4th. it turns out he didnt, but our family doctor said as long as I had them (which i did) it would be fine. I wish I could find some one with them so my kids could get them!!

I agree with PP. My ob said if YOU have had them then the baby will be fine.

I've heard the same; if you're immune, there should be no problem. The complications can happen if you actually GET chicken pox during early pg. Good luck!
