May be pregnant and exposed to measles



I just found out that one of my children’s teachers has measles (please pray for her and her family too, a lot of people depend on her as she babysits other kids too) meaning we’ve all been exposed.
I’m feeling a bit nervous because I know I may be pregnant and no one in the family has been feeling well lately. We would still be in the latent phase and have no visible symptoms yet but we’ve all been feeling so lousy lately, that I’m worried.
Please pray that my possible pregnancy hasn’t been exposed to measles, I’m worried about possible birth defects.
Thank you all and everyone on this board has my prayers.


A Hail Mary for you and baby! :heaven:

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou among women! And, blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus! Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death. AMEN!

Holy Mary, protectress of life within, pray to your Son, Jesus, on behalf of this mother and child. Pray for the protection of them from all illness in body, mind, and soul. Pray for a healthy and joy-filled pregnancy, safe delivery, and a grace-filled life together in the service of your Son. AMEN!

You are in my thoughts and prayers! :thumbsup:


Congrats on the baby … We need to be careful. Take a good Christian or Jewish doctors advise. This is NOT totally a bad thing. I will say a rosary for the baby.

love to you & yours


I will offer a prayer for your dear child as well as the teacher and all who are dealing with this current situation. Many blessings to you and Congratulations on your little one!


I will be praying for you and your maybe-baby, as well as the lady with the measles. When are you going to take the pregnancy test? You might be worrying about nothing :slight_smile:


With my prayers - Joe




Praying for everyone, hopefully you are worrying about nothing:)


Prayers for you and your unborn baby and children and the teacher and her family!!!


Thanks all for your prayers, it is so wonderful to have someplace to go where you know people will be praying for your intentions! :slight_smile:

My OB called and said that because I have a previous vax from prior pregnancies that I should be okay.

Now I have to wait to see if I’m pregnant, but maybe I am since I am feeling so emotional lately! :o

Thanks again for your prayers, I really appreciate you praying for me and everyone else on this board.


Great news! So now, do we pray for that pregnancy test to show positive? :slight_smile:


YAY a baby! Please o Please o Please! I love babies! :smiley:

I’ll pray for the will of GOD! :yup:


Haha - yes please Lord bless us with a baby!! :slight_smile: Thanks again all…:heart:
