Pregnant - Niece have measles

I found out that i'm 5 weeks pregnant. My niece got sick on Wednesday, the doctor said she has flu. We took her to a different doctor yesterday and found out that she have measles. Is it dangerous for me to be around her? Is it harmfull for my unborn baby? What will the complications be if i stay around her?
It's difficult not to be with her cause she is staying with me in the same house.

I'm scared. This is my first pregnancy and don't want anything to go wrong.

Please help

Measles is not dangerous to the baby. German measles is the problem.

As far as I am aware it is indeed dangerous and you should stay clear from her.
