Did YOU get the chicken pox as a child?

I did not.  Neither myself or my brothers ever caught the chicken pox, even when exposed around to others who had it.

    Yep. My hub and I got them good. My mom told me she rubbed me up against my brother who had them so we both can go thru having them at the same time

    Yes. I can't remember who caught it first, but I think either my sister or I brought it home from school. Pretty shortly, both of my sisters and I all had chickenpox. I'm sure my mom had fun dealing with 3 sick kids (ranging from almost 3 to 8 years) all at once :(

     you could be naturally immune. i got it twice. first time in kindergarden (it was a very mild case) then again in 2nd grade (got it good that time)

    I did not.  And when I was pregnant with Leo, apparently it was a problem.  I had to watch things closely.  If Caden got chicken pox and I contracted it, the doctors said it could very well lead to stillbirth :(.  That's one of the main groups chicken pox effects that we don't think about :(.  They didn't even give him the vaccine at the time because they were too afraid of that happening.

    Yes, as a 12 year old.  My husband doesn't think he ever did (and his mom doesn't remember?)
