    Hi ladies,

    woke up early this morning at 5 am with sore throat and I think a fever ( muscle ache and warm ).. Took a paracetamol but could not take my temperature since mine broke ( had to buy a new this morning ). When I came to the office I took my temperature and it was normal but now I am a little worried I have had a fever all night without taking anything to lower it since I was asleep..

    I know fever is bad in pregnancy but I was asleep so was unaware of it. I feel better now.

    I am 13 weeks today.

    xx

    Can't believe you're 13 weeks now! I really wouldn't worry as it doesn't sound like you had a real temperature or if you did it wasn't for very long. I think the concern is a very high temperature for a prolonged period. I had the same worries when pregnant as I woke up too hot a few times and was paranoid about overheating. My lo is fine :) If you're still worried contact your midwife and of course if you still feel unwell go to your GP xx

    Thanks. Have taken my temperature 4 times orally today already to make sure I am fine.. You can call that a little paranoid!! :)

    Do you know if oral digital thermometers are accurate ( they have shown below 37 C all the 4 times today ) :)
