I had shingles when I was 7 months pregnant with my second child.

I kept having an itchy rash on my lower back and finally asked my OB doc about it and he said it looked like shingles.

Isnt Shingles a form of Chicken pox? What has your doctor said about it... Will it affect your baby at all?... I found this article at the baby zone... you have seen your doc right? Did he give you anything? What did he say?
