@sunnySkys - It's because of stuff like this I think it would be a good idea to test all pregnant women for STI's. So many of them can be passed along to the child with results ranging from annoying to life threatening!
I know a lot of women might protest about being tested during their pregnancies, but I think it's better to be safe than sorry. There's always the possible of having an STI you didn't know about, or your partner cheating on you.
I personally would rather find out, get proper treatment, and avoid passing the disease along to my child.
