I'm 31 weeks pregnant and found a tick on my leg when I woke up this morning. I'm not sure how long it was on me but we had to use tweezers tobpull it out. Has this happend to anyone else while pregnant? Will baby be alright?

I had one when I was pregnant with my first and when I pulled it out we didn't get it all and I had to go to the hospital to have it removed. I was told I had nothing to worry about! Just keep an eye on it for the bulls eye and if you are worried you can go to the doctor and get antibiotics, however being pregnant I would't want to be on any medication that isn't necessary

I had two while I was pregnant. No idea where they came from. Baby and I had no issues. Just watch for it to heal correctly and watch for a "bullseye" that indicates lyme disease.

If you still have the tick or can remember what it looked like, look up a Deer Tick. Those are the ones that carry Lyme Disease.

As long as it doesn't get irritated, or develop a red circle around ti you should be fine.
