I lost my baby last year at 18 weeks from cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. I''m pregnant again-what is the risk of my baby developing the same problem?

CMV is a rare but dangerous condition for the baby that can cause among other problems miscarriage, growth problems and brain damage. So it was very unlucky for you to develop CMV in your last pregnancy. The good news is that if you''ve had CMV, you will have developed antibodies to the virus that make you immune to it, and you will not be able to develop it again. Get your doctor to check whether you are immune to CMV from a simple blood test-if you are, it will not happen again.
