Fever


Just today I have been feeling like I'm coming down with the flu. I know it's not my usual all day sickness, it def feels like the flu, and I have the most awful headache to go with it.

The thing that is the biggest worry is I feel like I have a slight fever. I have heard all sorts of stories of how a fever can harm the baby and maybe even cause miscarriage.

I'm so worried (I know stress will make things worse but I can't help it).

Should I contact my doctor in the morning? Or is there anything I should do in the meantime that could help?

Aww hun it's a common symptom to feel feverish in early preg or like you're about to get a cold so it could just be that. It happened to me too in both my pregnancies.

Take some paracetamol hun unless you have some low dose cocodamol (8/500's), These will be fine to take too.

Hope you're feeling better soon xx

I have felt like I have had a high temp a couple of times and have just used those things you stick on your head. They are for headaches and cool your head down. They are fantastic!
