Q.

what does CMV stand for and how is it spread?

I am 16 wks pregnant and I'm concerned about CMV.  My husbands 18-year old cousin was born with this.  Is there a chance that I could catch this and pass it on to my baby? Is there any danger for my husband and I to be around his cousin during my pregnancy?
