I don't really know exactly about the symptoms since I'm not at all familiar with F temperatures. I'm also pleased you're going to see your doc in the morning. I'm usually all for natural means & don't take anti-biotics ever, but last time I had a pregnancy loss, which was at 16 weeks, I opted for doing a d&c in the end. The baby did miscarry naturally ( 1-2 weeks after he died ) but I had some tissue retained. I worried about it for a few days but decided the d&c was the lesser evil than the infection. I had a misdiagnosed pelvic infection when I was 23 & ended up with blocked tubes so I am a touch paranoid myself about infections. I had also read that simple bacterial infections can cause a lot of reproductive problems so I kinda lost the plot a bit with all that & losing our baby for no apparent reason.
The chances are, even if you do have an infection, you will be OK. It's leaving them untreated that causes the problems. So it's probably not worth freaking out at all. Just go to the doctor, do what you have to do & make sure you take lots of other measures to make sure you're OK. Like make sure you're eating good food, get a natural iron supplement, get some real kick butt multi-vitamins, drink heaps of water, get some essential fatty acids of some kind & take them to help with healing & help with any depression, get some acidophilus capsules to take if you end up having some anti-biotics, take truck loads of vitamins C, go for a massage, get some acupuncture, basically pamper yourself since you deserve it after having something like this happen to you.
Best of luck & let us know how you get on.
