I personally would not be too concerned if my DS got the measles. DH got the measles and mumps growing up. He now has lifetime immunity that I will never have as I was "vaccinated".

Typically for pregnant women, Rubella is the only childhood disease to worry about and that is only during the first trimester of pregnancy as it could potentially cause birth defects.

But, I would contact your OBGYN as well as your pediatrician to inform them, ask their advice, and do your own research before you do anything.

Good Luck!
for everything above! and if your dh was vax'd and its still effective you should be fine but check with your health care providers to you though-I'm sure you're stressed about this!
