Hi Mammas,
A friend of mine is about 7 weeks pregnant and just went through about 3 days of a low fever (never over 100.5) with no other symptoms but fatigue. She didn't take any Tylenol because she was scared of taking a med, but now her Doc told her that she should have because of all the risks for problems in the first trimester with a fever. So not helpful now that it's over!!!!
I always thought that it was a high fever that should be medicated in the first trimester, like from a flu??
So, for her piece of mind....did anyone get a fever in their first trimester and your kiddo is just fine?
Thanks Mammas!!

Sure - a fever that low will do no harm to baby.  I'm sure I've had one with one or other of my pregnancies and never worried.  Tylenol is generally recommended by docs to be no-risk during pregnancy but in this case would be more for comfort than for lowering a dangerously high temp.
