Can severe cold or 99-100 degree fever harm my baby as I m 14 week pregnant

Can severe cold or 99-100 degree fever harm my baby as I m 14 week pregnant

No: That is not a high enough temperature to cause harm to your baby. Get plenty of rest and fluids and let your cold run its' course. Higher fever like 101, or other concerning symptoms warrant a visit to your OB. Don't forget to get a flu shot when available? ...Read more

38 weeks pregnant with a 100 degree fever and lots of diarrhea. I'm also 2cm dilated and 50% thinned out. Should I be worried?

38 weeks pregnant with a 100 degree fever and lots of diarrhea. I'm also 2cm dilated and 50% thinned out. Should I be worried?

See doctor: It is probably a GI bug, but you need to be sure. At 38 weeks, a fever can be a sign of something serious that could effect the baby. Additionally, diarrhea can cause dehydration that can result in preterm labor and/or other problems. At this stage of pregnancy, it always better to be checked. Better safe than sorry. Good luck! Hope you fell better. ...Read more

7 weeks 5 days pregnant... Keep running low grade fevers. Highest 103, now running around 100-101 daily. What could cause this?

7 weeks 5 days pregnant... Keep running low grade fevers. Highest 103, now running around 100-101 daily. What could cause this?

Fever of 103 F. ?: There are many infections which can raise the temperature to 103, but such is not a "low grade" fever, and requires medical examination. Influenza is a common cause, and your healthcare provider can do appropriate testing. See him/her as soon as possible. ...Read more
