low grade fever?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Can this just be pregnancy related?  I'm only 4 and a half weeks and have had a low grade fever each eveing for the last three nights, but today it's been around all day (never higher then 99.5, but fluctuates up and down all day).  I don't remember this with my #1.

It's not unusual to be a few degrees highter in Pregnancy; are you treating it?

I wouldn't say a few degrees.. maybe a few tenths of a degree would be normal.

 

OP, how are you feeling?  I was feeling like a truck hit me the other night, and my temp was only about 99.4-99.8... but I still felt awful!  Since it was still so low, though, I didn't take anything for it (didn't want to interfere with the slight fever fighting off the infection!).  I felt much better the next day.  I do have a cold, so it could be due to that as well.  All I know is I felt horrible the other night!

I was 99.1 for a while when I first got pregnant.  I normally run closer to 97.5.  I think sometimes the progesterone in the beginning can do strange things to your internal thermostat.  If it doesn't get any higher and you're not feeling anything else then its probably not a big deal.

It's probably just hormones, but even if you do get sick, one of my midwives a while ago did tell me that I didn't need to worry about treating a fever (normally I wouldn't treat a fever, but I was concerned about the baby) until it hit more like 102.
