Yes it is contracted through a bite from a infected mosquito and is actually able to be sexually transmitted by a infected male.

I haven't heard of any recent baby cases here in Texas.  I asked my OB about it and we did a quick blood test that came back negative.  Effects of Zika can also be seen on ultrasound so if your doctor hasn't mentioned anything you and baby are probably just fine.
