Pregnancy infections...Rubella Virus
Posted in May 2018

Infection with the rubella virus during pregnancy—particularly during the first trimester—is very serious. Common complications include miscarriage, premature delivery, and death of the fetus. In those babies who are born alive, a condition called congenital rubella syndrome can result.
Congenital rubella syndrome leads to eye, ear, and heart defects as well as microcephaly, or an abnormally small head along with incomplete development of the brain, autism, and mental and motor delay. These issues are permanent.
Notably, results from a 2011 study published in BMC Public Health suggest that between 2001 and 2010, 16,600 cases of congenital rubella syndrome were prevented by rubella vaccination. Furthermore, 1228 cases of autism spectrum disorder were prevented by rubella vaccination during this time period.
Transient or temporary deficits include enlargement of the liver and spleen, skin and bleeding issues (i.e.,blueberry muffin syndrome), and brain infection.

During prenatal care, a woman should be tested for rubella immunity. Women who are pregnant but not immune to the rubella virus need to be vaccinated after pregnancy. Those who are infected with the rubella virus during pregnancy must be closely monitored. Women who are infected with the rubella virus during the first 11 weeks of pregnancy have an up to 90 percent chance of delivering a baby with congenital rubella syndrome; whereas during the first 20 weeks, the rate drops to 20 percent.

My advise
1..  Take Healthy food and follow healthy habits to avoid infections during your pregnancy.
2... Drink sufficient water
