Good morning lovely ladies,

I hope you are all having lovely Monday!

About three weeks ago I had an early miscarriage ( I was just over five weeks along). My GP did the normal blood tests to determine if there was any HCG remaining as well as other tests and found out I had no immunity to Rubella. He then gave me the rubella booster shot.  A couple of days later my DS broke out in a rash and was diagnosed with  a minor case of rubella (he has been immunised hence the mild case) which he picked up at pre-school. I had a little cry of relief as my GP said if I was still pregnant I would have more than likely caught the rubella off my DS and he would have strongly suggested I terminated the pregnancy due to the risks. Now I am actually relieved I lost the pregnancy when I did.

Anyway, I was advised to wait 28 days prior to conceiving. Which I will and am happy too, my 28 days will be over soon. However, I was just wondering has anyone ever conceived within the recomended timeframe and there were no affects on the baby.  Im just curious!

Thanks. Have a great day :-) ♥
