My OB's office called with my b/w results. It shows I'm positive for a recent exposure to Fifths Disease, which means I didn't have the antibodies previously. I'm being sent to the MFM specialist next week to follow up. Trying not to worry, but it's hard.

From what I understood (although this was based on information from a MW, whom I no longer trust... so... grain of salt and all that) when they test you, you're either going to be positive or negative.
positive result means you have the antibody, but there's no test or way of telling if it's from a recent exposure or immunity from your childhood.
negative results means... well, just that. no antibodies.
So I'm not sure what they're meaning when they say you're positive for a recent exposure.

If I'm reading right, they checked b/w for IgG and IgM. IgM is the first antibody to appear after an initial exposure. IgG would be the only antibody to appear if it was an old exposure.

And I need to stay off Dr Google. I'm scaring myself!

Hmm... that makes sense. (and makes me even more with the MWs here)

I'll be thinking about you. for baby to be safe and sound.
