Ron, I got hep C the same way, nearly 40 years ago. (It really doesn't matter how we contracted it...the fact is we have it.) I didn't know I had hep C and had no symptoms until '91 when fatigue seemed to come out of nowhere and stayed, regardless of how much sleep I got. If you have recently been offered treatment, then the doctor may feel you are "active," but the only way to really tell is through a liver biopsy. Have you ever had one? If not, it would be a good idea to find out where you stand. If you are chronic active, it would be in your best interest to get treatment.
There are known cases of mother to child transmission in the womb.
