can pregnant women be around chemotherapy patients?

My MIL is starting chemo next week. DH wants her to come to our house after every treatment. DH's best friend went through chemo (and has since past away) and my dr said I could be around him on a limited basis, and the one time he was over he was outside most of the time. I'm not sure how to handle this. One of my biggest concerns is that I am going to have my baby while she is still getting treatment. I don't know how chemo is around new borns. We've been under so much stress the past 3 wks with DH's friend passing, and finding out his moms cancer is back, really bad. Any one have experience being around chemo patients?
