Hi all Sorry to post such a negative thread! Yesterday afternoon I started to get a slight sore throat, I didn't think much of it until yesterday evening when the fever kicked in. Throughout the night I had a temp between 38.6 - 38.9 but with paracetamol I could get it down to 38.1 - 38.3. My entire body is hurting my temps through the roof n I feel freezing! Visited GP this morning who says throat infection gave me antibiotics told me to continue with paracetamol and although I told him I could hardly swallow he assured me it was all on one side n I'm to drink often n do my best to keep temps down. Since coming home I read a comment on the NHS website re most penicillin being safe to take during pregnancy, but this particular one said its not been confirmed its safe in pregnancy and should only be taken if strictly necessary. I called GP to ask, he assured me he had double checked with colleagues after getting my message and had looked it up in 'the book' n there are no problems expected if taken during pregnancy etc. he reassured me n said but please try to get a couple of doses down ASAP as I am concerned re how painful and swollen that all looked.... Since then.... I've been sick guessing I've brought up the antibiotic. I don't know what to do. Call doc back again? What's the alternative..... IV for cpl Days? But is that dangerous for baby? Any advice appreciated!
