So it says in my pregnancy manual...today I've encountered numerous people with flu, a person getting over severe pneumonia AND an old woman who stopped to talk to me in the gym who just has had shingles. Should i be paranoid??????
Maybe overly so. !!!!!!!
My husband has the really bad flu for a week now but so far I haven't been ill from it. I had a small cold before xmas so I'm hoping that has built up my immune system a bit.
Oh my God if I'm not being coughed or sneezed on then I have people coming in to me (I work on reception) telling me of their ailments, just gotten over the flu, just had the vomiting bug........ just stay away from me!!!
I have the anitbacterial stuff at my desk too and just git more for the car for after trips! I think its always a great idea to avoid people who are sick, even when I'm not pregnant.
Shingles is the same virus as chicken pox, if you already had chicken pox, you should nt catch it off someone. If you did catch it you would get chicken pox, not shingles.
