Q.

Pregnancy and Chicken Pox

Hi Doctor, I am 21 weeks pregnant and just spoke to someone at work who says that his kids are sick at home with chicken pox and that really worries me now! He said that he is not at a risk of exposure because he has had chicken pox twice (aren't you supposed to be immune after the first time you have had it? He is not office based and he has already left so I won't be exposed to him again in the near future. I also did not stand close to him while we had the conversation. I am also not entirely sure if I ever had chicken pox but my mom seems to think i did and I know I was immunized against it. Now my question is should I be worried? And if so what should I do?
