We are also looking, we are located in Sacramento CA.

We were exposed 10 days ago (lots of hugging/lollipop/water bottle sharing) I am expecting someone in my family to break out this weekend!! (kiddos are almost 7, almost 4 and almost 1)....


I'm all stocked on goodies from our naturopath doc...hoping I didn't waste my money! HA!


Our friends who had the pox are all about cleared up but they did spread it to friend's of theirs who visited them a couple days prior to us...


I'll keep you all posted Peace.gif

I'm more than happy to have some playdates this week if anyone is looking for exposure..PM me. :)


I'm in Exeter so you can google to see how far that is for you.



babynatasha 02-02-2012 02:52 PM

I'm in Kingston! I am so late again! Why do I not check this daily?!?! Can we still come visit?!?!

deemc 02-28-2012 12:08 PM

I too am looking for the chicken pox, am in near sunapee but will travel.

mainemamaof3 03-08-2012 06:57 AM

I'm in Yarmouth and my kids are on their first day of at least 16 days home from school since they haven't had chicken pox yet. I am hoping to make the most of this time and try REALLY hard to get them exposed. My kids are 9, 7, and 6 and we're willing to travel for some pox! They are more upset than I thought they'd be...especially my middle one who is missing being an arctic hare in her class play. I'm upset too...not that I love school...and am always psyched for days with my kids...but this was so sudden and has kind of rocked our world...anyway, let us know if you find any!

babynatasha 03-09-2012 11:35 AM

MaineMamaof3, is the school making you stay home because they are unvaccinated for CP? Is there a case of CP in the school? We just finished exposure 4 for CP, my DS still has not caught it. I had his titers done and they say he still have no immunity... I was starting to wonder if he had caught a really mild case one of the first times, but the doc says no. Guess I will be on the hunt for CP with you again :(

I've got some chicken pox in hancock county, can travel to bangor with them.

Mommie020307 05-02-2012 06:55 PM

Bummer, we are North of Auburn....My youngest is not vaxed against anything....she's 19mo old...almost 20mo old...My older 3 have been vaxed but they still have that chance of getting it...We want the chicken pox... :-)

sarahvanhoy 05-07-2012 07:15 AM

We have the chicken pox - just outside Montpelier.  

deemc 05-22-2012 05:16 AM

caramitch 05-22-2012 09:09 AM

Desparate to find chicken pox for my 7 and 4 year olds.  This will be our fourth exposure.  Willing to travel from Massachusetts!  Thanks so much!!

caramitch 05-30-2012 12:33 PM

Deemc, did you find them?

Anyone?!!!  I have posted to two different threads in the Vt, NH, ME tribe site and my fingers are crossed!!  I would be ever so grateful for any assistance!!  Thank you!! 

junipervt 05-31-2012 06:21 AM

I am in Burlington, VT & my 4yr old daughter has them. Had a couple spots that I thought were bug bites last night & this morning woke up w/ a ton more.

junipervt 06-01-2012 05:24 AM

she has lots more this morning. she's feeling great (although itchy) & would love some kids to play with :)

junipervt 06-04-2012 01:23 PM

babytoes 06-25-2012 07:38 AM

I wish I had been paying attention! I live in St Albans, and I would love to expose my two DS's... Oh well, maybe next time

caramitch 04-24-2013 09:47 PM

I know that this is an old post. Not quite sure how everyone handles these threads these days.  Haven't posted for a year, but looking for the same thing as last year.  Chicken Pox!!!  Would LOVE to expose my two kids (again!)!!! Any help would be great!! We are in central/southern mass and will happily travel. thanks-cara

RaelynsMama 06-29-2013 09:25 AM

Possible case in Concord NH! My niece has spots! About to expose my kids! smile.gif

sillyrabbit 08-22-2013 02:17 PM

I'm guessing this died out?  Any further updates for this general area?

Gwyneddleslie 08-26-2013 03:29 PM

Interesting. We had it last summer, right around the 4th of July. We had traveled to the manchester nh area, and then the york me area. Our girls randomly caught it. I wish I had know about this site so we could have shared!
