Hi, mono is actually affecting only you and it will have no harmful affect on your baby.
Infectious mononucleosis is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. The illness is mostly seen in adolescents and young adults. When person develops antibodies to this disease once, it gets immunity toward this condition. If your immune system is healthy, you will not have mono infection reactivated. Mononucleosis spreads mainly through saliva, so you can effect your baby when it is born. Kissing an infected person or sharing food, or just being with someone infected increases chances for developing infection. Try to apply some immune system supportive dietary supplements, in order to get protected from infectious diseases.

Hello fotergill, 

Mononucleosis, as any condition in pregnancy, does of course raise some concerns for your and baby’s safety. Luckily, mononucleosis very rarely causes serious threats for your pregnancy. But, these risks are far smaller when you have seen a doctor and are regularly monitoring both your health and baby’s development.

Infection that causes mononucleosis has no particular treatment, except rest and treatment of symptoms such as high fever which might endanger your health. This infection clears itself on its own and it definitely shouldn’t cause you any major problems during pregnancy, or even worse, affect the baby in any way. So, stick to the doctor’s advices, get a plenty of rest, fluids and vitamins and mono will go away.
