Q:

Why would you get chicken pox ? Is someone in your family having the same. The risk is there in the first two trimesters and highest between week 13-20.

Chicken pox is mainly contagious when the spots swell with fluid then break and the fluid carries the virus from person to person. This happens in the latter stage of the infection. In all probability of he has left for his native place you should be safe.
