Infected in CMV prior to pregnancy. I realized there was no risk to the fetus. I want to perform amniocentesis. Is amniotic fluid used to do 16 20 wee?

Infected in CMV prior to pregnancy. I realized there was no risk to the fetus. I want to perform amniocentesis. Is amniotic fluid used to do 16 20 wee?

Possible...: My advice would be to pose this question to your ob/gyn. As you will not be the one performing the actual procedure; best to ask the professionals. There is always a small risk of miscarriage after an amniocentesis; albeit minute...So best to discuss this with your obstetrician. ...Read more

How does CMV affect the unborn baby during pregnancy?

Depends.: If the mother has been previously exposed, then the fetus is protected by her antibodies and should not suffer when the mother is exposed to CMV during pregnancy. If the pregnant woman has never before been infected with cmv, the fetus is at risk for in utero infection that can range from lethal to mild/none. The earlier the infection the more severe and unlikely; the later, the milder and likely. ...Read more

Why is my CMV IgM always positive, years later. It caused such a scare to the drs when they tested me during pregnancy?

Why is my CMV IgM always positive, years later. It caused such a scare to the drs when they tested me during pregnancy?

Get it rechecked: The presence of CMV IgM is not solely indicative of primary infection. CMV IgM is detectable when a person 1) is newly infected, 2) has been infected in the past but recently re-exposed to CMV, 3) is undergoing reactivation of CMV infection that was acquired in the past, or 4) has a false-positive test result. Thus, the presence of CMV IgM should not be used by itself to diagnose primary CMV infec ...Read more
