Ok, so I gave all my pregnancy books to my SIL, who I have not yet told I am expecting, so I need some advice here. I am 9 weeks today, and I have the stomach flu for the second time so far this pregnancy. It really sucks. Anyway, I have a fever, but only 99.5. Do I need to worry? I know fever in pregnancy can be dangerous for the baby, but beyond that I don't remember any details (how high is too high, does it matter how far along you are, etc.).<br><br>
Any advice you have would be great. Thanks!

I had a major flu at 38 wks and a fever. I called my midwife and she said not to worry too much.<br>
She said to see a doctor if my condition got worse, or if I got bad headaches, or the chills got bad and if the fever continues to rise.<br>
I took my temp every 2 hours for a few days to be sure.<br>
I chewed ice, wore less clothes and drank heaps of water, and took some panadol.

Thanks! I took one tylenol and went to bed early last night. I feel SOOO much better today! Hopefully this will be it for the flu for a while.
