No risk for baby: Make sure your obstetrician knows about this and your concern for herpes. She will know how to prevent any risk to your baby. However, a herpes outbreak at 8 weeks carries no danger for the baby; it's a problem on if there is an outbreak at the time of vaginal delivery. Even then, the risk is very low. The main risk of neonatal herpes is for new herpes caught toward the end of pregnancy.
