I'm so frustrated! My older 2 are partially vaxed and unvaxed thus far. We've been trying to get them exposed to chicken pox for almost 7 years and nada. Well, we did manage to get HFMD at 18 mos due to a misdiagnosed case of CP, but no pox. It rarely even breaks out around here and almost 100% of the people I know fully vaxed their kids anyway. DS8 was exposed in kindy but didn't get it (casual, sat nexxt to the girl who got it so I wasn't surprised when he didn't get them). Just found out another kid in the neighborhood has it, plus 2 kids on his soccer team were exposed and hopefully will get it. This is the perfect opportunity to have them do playdates and try to get CP, except I'm 36w5 days so if they got them it's likely they'd be contagious when I give birth or with a brand newborn in the house. Obviously I'll be keeping the older 2 away from those kids now but DANG it! Why couldn't this have been a few months ago?!? Stinking awful timing.
you must be so frustrated with that. We keep trying to get the two younger ones around it. no luck here either

We live in Mexico and do not vax...a friend of mine who lives here had a neoighbor who'c child has "something" they thought it was ckn pox....but they were not 100% sure. So i skipped on that one. Cant be bringing home something else...kwim?
But i do go to a chiro in Texas and he is looking for ckn pox too...so hopefully if he finds it...he will pass on the pox to us!
It was never a good time for us either. DC was delayed vax and by the time I starting thinking of the vaccine for her I felt she was old enough to have a say in the matter. She chose to have the vax.
