  A woman who contracts CMV for the first time during pregnancy has about a 30 to 40 percent risk of passing the virus on to her fetus. A recent study suggests that women who contract CMV for the first time in the third trimester are more likely to pass the infection on to their babies than women who develop the disorder earlier in pregnancy.In that study, 78 percent of babies of women who developed CMV in the third trimester were infected, compared to 44 percent in the second trimester, and 36 percent in the first trimester. However, studies suggest that babies are more likely to be severely affected when their mother is infected in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy.
