My kiddos got sick a couple weeks ago my son developed a rash (little dots) and I was supper scared it could be chicken pox but the dots where just inside his skin any ways that went away and a week later hid fingertips stated to peal!! Eww found out he had had scarlet fever. Check also to see if ur kiddos rash is only on her hands foot and mouth as that could also be not chicken pox but a form of it

Call your OB right away. Chicken pox are very dangerous for pregnant women.

Yes without a doubt contact your doctor and tell them this..a simple blood test will tell whether you are immune or not and your doctor then can advise you further as what to do,if you had the measles you could very well be immune but id certainly run it by your doctor
