Should I be worried?

One of my kids came down with strep, and we shared a drink last night. Is strep something that is dangerous to pregnant women?!

So sorry your little one is sick Strep is no fun! My gut tells me that it won't be a big deal if you get strep, but I don't know for sure. Don't worry about it, though - stress from worrying might have an effect on your immune system, and if you have come into contact with it, there's really nothing you can do at this point. Just be aware of how you're feeling, if you get a scratchy throat, go see your Dr. immediately so they can catch it before it gets too far along. Take care - hopefully you won't get sick!

Gargle with a mix of applecider vinegar and water. That will kill the strep. My mom did that when both my brother and I got it and she was starting to get a sore throat and nothing ever happened in terms of getting sick. Be sure to plug your nose though, it stinks but it totally works. I've done it a few times when I start to get a sore throat.
