Re: Fifth Disease and pregnancy Q

I tested positive for both antibodies, one of them pretty high, one lower. My doctor said that means it's possible that I've had a recent infection. From everything I've read online, that means a positive test result. So yes, I've had Fifth's Disease recently. I'd say there's a pretty good chance it caused the baby to pass. It would be too big of a coincidence if it wasn't the reason. I have an appointment on Monday with the perinatal specialist to find out all the other test results, so will talk more to her about it. It would be good to know if that is the reason and that it can't happen again because now I will be immune.
