Fifths Disease in Pregnancy. — The Bump
January 2018 Moms

Fifths Disease in Pregnancy.

You know, the mild virus that causes a rash in kids? Kinda a big deal to get it while pregnant. 

I'm currently waiting for what will be the first of several u/s. Complications from the virus can take 8-12 weeks to show in the fetus. 

I am so effing pissed that I'm in this place again, with some random issue that doesn't cause an issue for most pregnancies, but can be serious. I have an u/s in a half hour and I'm terrified. Total ptsd.

  • Good luck..hope everything is ok
  • I'm so sorry that is stressful. I hope everything is ok. 
  • As an FYI to STM+, it doesn't present the same in adults as it does in children. Adults usually experience flu-like symptoms followed by joint pain. 

    Thank God one of DD1's classmate's mothers mentioned having it and the joint pain or I probably never would have realized I had it.

  • Get well soon and hoping the best for the baby.  I am pretty sure I had this about a year ago and passed it to my toddler. I was super sick for about a day. When the fever came on my bones hurt so bad, I could barely drive myself home from work. Best wishes for you!

  • Lurking from dec 17. I have my first ultrasound tomorrow bc of fifths disease. About a month ago my daughter had it and the OB's nurse continually put me off about it. They did blood work two weeks ago and it showed that I did have it at that time. Not sure what to expect tomorrow, but hoping that it didn't spread to the fetus. Thoughts and prayers to you. I completely understand the irritation and fear that goes along with this.

  • Glad everything looked good today. Did they say how often you will have to have ultrasounds? 
  • I'm so sorry you're going through this! Glad things looked good today. Keep us posted!

    @eighmeyf, the recommendation is every or every other week. 

    With my pregnancy prior to this one I had a SCH that required bi weekly u/s. That didn't end well and quite honestly, I'd be okay with never having another u/s again. So between that experience and the fact that should hydrops or other complications form there's nothing that can be done anyway, my OB and I decided to do the one I had yesterday, one around 12-13 weeks and then decide from there. 

    I found this while lost in a research rabbit hole, and found it slightly reassuring:
