I've been running about 99.2-99.8 fever since I first was pregnant. I'm 6 weeks now. So really only been pregnant for aobut 4 weeks. i know at least the last 3 I've had low fever, and clamminess and some chills. Nothing horrible..just wondered what could be wrong?

What is your non-pregnant temp? You temperature will go up about a degree because of the hormones (progesterin if I remember right) that's released by your body to keep a pregnancy. That's why if you chart your temp will go up after Oing. Most people go up to something in the 98s from 97. Some people have higher or lower than normal temps. Not sure that that's what is happening but this could be an explanation.

The exact thing has happened to me with each of my pregnancies. I always wondered why I had a fever and the answer seems so simple now!!! I love it when my light bulb goes on
