Should DH and I try this month even though I think I've been exposed to chicken pox? I've had chicken pox (and shingles, for that matter) already, so the immunity is there, but is it OK to expose a fetus to it?<br><br>
I don't expect to ovulate for another week and a half, but chicken pox can have an incubation (sp?) period for up to 21 days, I think. What do you think? I'd hate to miss ANOTHER month.

my thought is that anything growing inside you would be protected by the antibodies you have from your chicken pox strains you got before.
