Hi everyone well, today i left work 1 hr after i started bc my throat hurts so much i cant swallow and i have fever. Well i went to the clinic today and waited 4 hrs to see a doctor. Finally the doctor concluded that i have a big throat infection and fever so, he gave me antibiotics and told me to mention to my OB tomo that i am taking those antibiotics. I asked him if it would b safe for the baby and he said yes.
Well i threw up this morning alot ( basically nothing cause i hadnt eaten yet ) and since then i just feel like pure garbage. My head and ALL my bones are killing me bc i have fever and i cant even swallow cause my throat hurts soo much. I have to go back to work on wednesday so i hope that ill b feeling better by that time.
Does anyone know if fever is dangerous for the baby ?? im really worried about the baby considering the way im feeling. Ive been wrapped up in a blanket pretty much all day , and i eat by force cause i know i have to.
SOrry its sort of long i just need some comfort so maybe ill feel a lil better.

Thanks. xx

I am sick right now too. My sister came into town with her two boys for my son's birthday this weekend, and needless to say they were both sick. She said they weren't really sick, but by Sunday they were both feverish and groggy and coughing. Come to find out today after she takes them to the doctor that they both have strep throat!!!! I barely started to get the itchy dry sore throat and now my son is coughing. I am sooooo mad at her!!!! I hate being sick but even more so I hate being sick while pregnant. I feel guilty taking med's because even though I know my doctor says they are safe I am still worried how they affect my bean.
Sorry, I know didnt offer you any comfort, but you are not alone I am sick right there with you!

A fever is bad and you should get it checked out. But I really can't think of the temp that is bad. I bet one of the other girls would know.

im glad to hear im not the only sick one and im not the only one who feels guilty and worried bout taking meds. i did get it checked out today and the doctor gave me antibiotics for my infection. i guess once the infection starts to get cured the fever will start going away.

Take some tylenol for the fever, it's perfectly safe. Try some cough drops for the throat, they are safe also.

OMG, that's horrible! I hope the meds kick in soon so you can feel better.

I had to take antibiotics during my last pregnancy and it was fine. My baby is happy and healthy I hope that makes you feel a little better.

I have heard that anything over 100 could be dangerous, however, when I was sick earlier in the pregnancy the advice nurse said anything over 102 to go to the er...

So I don't know. The best bet would be to call you md and find out what they recommend.

Fevers can be bad especially this early in pregnancy. If it goes up again take some Tylenol to bring it back down. Drink lots of fluids and get lots of rest. I hope you feel better soon!
