    Hi guys,
    just wanted to say a huge thanks for your responses, I went to docs and yes I have a kidney inf, pain in back,fever etc...so going to take a couple of days off work to recover but dare not take too long. The rest is wonderful, feel like I have been fighting this for weeks.
    Good luck to everyonex


    Hi guys
    keep apologising for not posting as i used to be on here all the time and knew some of you really well, bit of a lurker now when i get the spare 5-10mins but my life is very stressful at the mo. In fact i think the stress has caught up with me, i had a fever last night and felt really ill, i have had a bad headache for a couple of days....it could be that i am getting flu but i am a bit worried and don't know whether just to rest or to call my doc or midwife, what could they do in reality ?
    any advice would be so greatlly appreciated and really do hope when i am off on maternity i get chance to catch up with everyone xxx

    hey hun,
    they say to ring if you have a headache that wont go away or you have a fever with no cold/flu symtoms.
    they will prob just tell you to drink lots of fluids.
    have you tried taking half a paracetamol just to take the egde off
    hope you feel better soon

    Hi Ginny I remember you :wave:

    Basically I think if you're worried about anything at all you should contact your GP or midwife. If something is wrong they'll be able to advise you, and if not, at least you've put your mind at rest!

    I had flu in 1st Tri and my headache was so bad I had to take cocodamol (which I'd never normally have ever - I'm a paracetamol every few months kind of girl)... anyway my baby is OK so I'm certain 2 paracetamol will be fine!!

    Hope you feel better soon. Get lots of rest and take lots of fluids :hug:
