parvovirus in humans

Hello all. Just checking if anyone here as beard of this virus? I went to my 18 wk sonogram yesterdayand told doc my 14 month old has rsv. A respitory virus and that now i have cold like symptoms and a rash on my face. She said i coukd have parvo and they drew blood to find out for sure but i don't have results yet. She says my baby can become anemic and can need a blood transfusion while in the womb. I am so terrified. She says parvo is contracted by school age kids

I believe it is usually referred to as fifths disease in humans. Look it up because I'm not positive, but there is an outbreak of fifths going around elementary schools in my area.

I've never heard of that other than in dogs I raise dogs and unfortunately lost two about 5 years ago to parvo but we never got it ourselves.
