(used millie's dummy thermometer felt like a tit!) but i feel FREEZING and my head, neck, lower back, knees and ankles ache like a b*tch! dont feel like eating (not eaten since 1pm) and the wierdest thing is i keep leaking a tiny bit :oops: iv not done that since ages ago (just after my pelvic muscles got stretched by a little head lol!) oh and my eyes feel hot :?

    Thats a really high temperature hun, what about calling out a locum from your surgery if you don't want to dial 999? I would be a bit worried!?

    oh dear, sounds like you have the same flu that i had. :hug:

    if you want the truth you will feel terrible for at least 4 days, the high temp day will be the worst (it was for me and manfluhead) your temperature may give you weird dreams, take paracetamol for that. if you werent breastfeeding i would reccomend day and night nurse tablets - they were a godsend with me.

    you may be knackered and very congested and may need help with LO. it knocked me for six, ive lost half a stone and am only just getting my energy back, i got it over a week ago.

    i really hope you feel better soon. i feel so sorry for you. try and sleep it off :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:

    oh, and my temp peaked at 39.1 but was only that high for a day, it crept down slowly. you need some paracetamol if you can take that when breastfeeding and drink drink drink :hug:

    hope you are feeling better, i went to the docs once with a temp of 103, they didnt seem that bothered, Take paracetemol, it wont kill much pain but its just about thebest thing going for bringing down a temperature. You can take ibroprophen also but i'm not sure what BFing effect this will have, drink loads of fluid, dont worry about not being able to eat too much, just eat what you fancy. keep yourself cool but not too cold as you wont be able to guage cold very well at the mo.

    Get someone to come over and give you a hand with LO, if you still have a high temp after a day of serious rest go back to the docs
