Hi,

I have been affected with chicken pox during 17th week (last monday) from my elder daughter. I am taking acyclovir 800 mg 5 times daily.

If i get chicken pox during 17 weeks of pregnancy should it be very risky to terminate the pregnancy? can we know all the abnormalities if something happens during anomaly scan or any other possible way to detect all abnormalities?

I have been told by many people that moms who got chickenpox during pregnancy had problems with their new borns. Please suggest me as I am going through a critical condition now.

Thanks,
sns
