I am 24 weeks pregnant & I am immune to Fifths Disease, does that mean I am immune to the hand, foot, and mouth disease?

See note

Immunization
No. No one is immune to a virus of this nature since a vaccine is not available. It is very uncommon if your an adult and is usually only found in immunocompromised patients if so.

Dr. Jay Park answered:

Exposed to child with fifths disease and I'm 13 weeks pregnant. I had fifths disease as a child. Am i immune to it? Is this really serious?

Protected

Children
Since you already had fifth disease, it is quite unlikely your offspring from current pregnancy develop any serious complication.

I am 18 weeks pregnant and think I've been around a child with fifths disease. What should I do. Will my baby be hurt?

Depends on situation

Children
Most of us have 5ths during childhood & develop lifelong immunity. If you did, you have nothing to worry about.If you were only exposed to the case after the kid had a rash, the kid was no longer contagious. If exposed in the days before the rash you may develop 5ths & it can hurt a fetus. There is no treatment available but close contact with OB is advised.

Dr. Emily Altman answered:

I am 38 weeks pregnant and may have been exposed to 2 children with Fifths Disease since 35 weeks pregnant. Is this dangerous to my unborn baby?

Depends if you had

Pregnant
50% pregnant women had 5th disease (parvovirus B19) so their babies are protected. Women who have not had it, most of the time, the disease does not do any damage to unborn babies. However 5% of the time, babies can get severe anemia from mom's infection, especially in first 1/2 of pregnancy. Please let your OB know right away you were exposed, get blood test. You may have had B19 already

Pink cheeks. could this be fifths disease?

Possibly

Fifth_disease
Erythema infectiousum, named Fifth Disease because it was the fifth most common childhood rash may be the cause, but if this persists, see your pediatrician.

Would it be possible for someone to discover diabetes during pregnancy?

Yes

Open-uri20130606-12452-1rkvzvf
Gestational diabetes can occur anytime during pregnancy. If you have symptoms/signs of diabetes, you should get tested again (just blood tests) even if you'd tested negative earlier on in pregnancy.

Dr. Maritza Baez answered:

What are the effects of gestational diabetes during pregnancy?

Many possible

Heart
Diabetes can affect the developing baby throughout the pregnancy. In early pregnancy, a mother's diabetes can result in birth defects and an increased rate of miscarriage. Many of the birth defects that occur affect major organs such as the brain and heart. During the 2nd & 3rd trimester, a mother's diabetes can lead to over-nutrition & excess growth of the baby.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

Can fever be ongoing with fifths disease?

To some extent....

Fifth_disease
Parvovirus (the cause of fifth disease) can cause fevers that last a bit longer than your average fever causing virus. The longest I have seen fever last is about 5 days. After that, I would want to start thinking about other causes of fever.
