In brief: Pregnancy varicella

If mother gets chicken pox infection during early gestational period (weeks 8 to 20) the fetus is at risk for developing congenital varicella syndrome with limb hypoplasia, skin lesions, neurologic anomalies and eye damage.
It is also associated with developing herpes zoster during infancy. Please consult OBGYN expert and neonatologist asap.

In brief: Difficult question

It is not clear that you are pregnant with varicella at 3 weeks or have a 3 wk old with varicella.
Any infection you have early in pregnancy that enters the blood like varicella can affect the baby. At 3 wks it might end the pregnancy or cause organ/formation issues. Most of the infants who survive pregnancy with varicella effects were developed it after 12 wks,which makes your question difficult
