Pregnancy and Chickenpox

Can I put my babies in harms way if I am around a child with chickenpox? I' m 21 weeks along with twins and I have had chickenpox before when I was younger.

Chicken pox isn't really a problem at this stage.

If you had chicken pox before then you are probably immune and your babies will be fine.

I haven' t ever had chicken pox and we might want another baby in the future, so I' ve just got myself vaccinated. There wasn' t a chicken pox vaccine available when I was planning my first child. I' ve had him vaccinated as well.
