Re: 5th disease and pregnant?

Mostly likely you are immune and can stop worrying right there, most adults have had it before and just don't realize.

I am one of the lucky few who has no immunity so I am tested again every time I am exposed just to make sure.

If you don't have immunity AND you are exposed AND you contract 5ths, then most likely they will do more intense monitoring to check the baby for severe anemia.

It's one of those things you probably don't have to worry about just statistically speaking, but you don't want to "wait and see" with because it can be very serious.
