I'm in central CT... if anyone's up to share some pox soon!  :)  Have to plan this between doula clients and holidays!  lol.  We tried several years back, but no spots on either girl.  I suppose I should get their tieters (sp) done first?

Hi All!  New to this website... I just joined, yea!  

 

Anyway, I am also looking for CP in NJ....but will travel.  Have been looking on the site but it doesn't seem that its going to be easy to find a party in the North East.  Any advise?  

 

I could also go visit "grand mom" in Florida...any one know of anything there? 

 

Thanks, 

mom of 2 kids (ages 6 n 4)

FYI everyone, there is a "Chicken Pox Parties NYC Metro Area" page (or something like that).  It is private (so folks won't see that you're looking for pox).  Last year there were many cases and it was a great resource.  We welcome everyone!

Thanks

Chamsia - I just asked to join the fb page.  I didn't see a place where I could say that I heard about the group on Mothering.  My last (planned) baby is 7 months so I figure I should start keeping an eye out for pox .  I'm not sure he's old enough to get it given how much he's still nursing, but hoping to find something starting in the next 1-6 years.

I asked to join as well.  Is the group definitely still active?  I also sent the moderator a note.

Hi guys. The fb page is still active. I don't know who the moderator is.  If you don't hear back pm me here and I'll post about it.

 

Here's hoping for some pox soon!

Looking for chicken pox in central/southern mass.  I have been trying for YEARS; exposed my kids three times, blood work says they haven't had it, so I am going to give it a last shot.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  We will travel.

Perhaps I was too subtle in my above post...we have chicken pox here in New Bedford, MA, which is in between Cape Cod and Providence on the South Coast of MA (not the south shore).

 

PM me for details if you'd like.

Thank you for a wonderful get-together, Paige!  We were having such a good time that I completely lost track of the hour! Sorry about that.  We loved meeting you all and look forward to sharing some fun time together this summer (on the Cape perhaps?!).  Hugs to Toby, Comfort and Lucky!

I'm commenting on here so that I don't lose this post. We will be traveling home to central MA the very beginning of June and I have been trying for a long time to find someone with pox! Not a fun way to start our summer vacation, but I'll do what must be done. :) Bummed we aren't up there just yet, I'd totally take you up on that offer Paige! I'm hopeful that the virus will still be going around in a few short weeks. :)

If we get any signs here, we will be sure to post.  If I remember correctly, Paige said that it took her little ones two weeks to break out.  We have been to a few gatherings thanks to the mothering.com community and I would be happy to return the favor.  Fingers crossed you all hear from us within two weeks!!!

Hello All, 

We MAY have something brewing here!!  My daughter has some curious spots that have appeared 13 days after exposure.  Fingers crossed.  We are in Franklin, MA and I will be sure to post tomorrow morning.  Send me a private message if I can provide any more info.

Awe, really Cara?  Well you still have time, it can be up to 21 days... The son of my friend who you met has it.   

 

Hope you all are well otherwise!

Not sure if it's too far, but if people are willing to travel...

We attended a chicken pox party last Sat and we're waiting with fingers crossed! IF we get symptoms we will be sharing BIG TIME. Depending on interest, we may even have multiple days of parties. We live near Ithaca, NY. Please fill out the following form if you are interested and we'll email you when we know for sure we have symptoms. If there are a ton of people from one area, we'll pick a few to bring it back to the others :)
