Pregnant after a Loss

Please talk to me about fevers.

5w3d pregnant due to miraculously managing to hit first cycle post a double d&c for a mmc discovered the day before Thanksgiving (12w6d).

I'm uber paranoid.  Unreasonably so I think.  I do understand that below 101.0 isn't really considered a fever.  But I need reassurance.  I've started feeling a bit wonky today.  Not a particularly worrisome symptom (empty belly feeling, tired, cranky... normalish) and have discovered this evening that I've got a bit of a fever.  I'm normally a 98.6F girl but I've had 100.8 for the last 3 hours.  Obv. I should call my doc tomorrow but I was just looking to see if anyone experienced this themselves and had good results after.  Please and thank you ladies!

  • Woke up and no fever so maybe it was just a blip.

  • Glad you are feeling better.  Generally Tylenol is okay for pregnant people so if I was fighting a fever I would grab a Tylenol and a cold compress and see if I could break it.

    DD1 - BFP 7/23/15 (EDD 3/31/16).  "We believe in you rainbow" DOB 4/2/16
    DD2 - BFP 2/9/18 (EDD 10/19/18).  "Grow baby grow!" DOB 10/24/18

  • Early in my pregnancy, my temp was around 99.5 one night and I didn't feel very well. I wondered if it was just the pregnancy that caused it. Everything was fine for me. Like @bntfroggie said, Tylenol is a good idea if it happens again. And more cowbell, of course.

    9/5/18 Diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (4-5 follicles, one ovary had none and was very atrophied)

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

    BFP 5/11/19  •  Fraternal twins  •  MMC found at 10w5d (Baby A 6w, Baby B 10w)  •  Misoprostal at 11 weeks (age 41)

  • My doc said I was fine (which does not reassure me after my last loss) but the Tylenol and compress really helped it quickly and @CarrieandRoy thanks for sharing, it's nice to hear someone else experienced the same with positive results!
