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?

Is it okay to let a 100.7 degree fever run its course w/o taking meds in early pregnancy (7.5wks)? If fever rises, at what temp should I take Tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Is it okay to let a 100.7 degree fever run its course w/o taking meds in early pregnancy (7.5wks)? If fever rises, at what temp should I take Tylenol (acetaminophen)?

Tylenol (acetaminophen) IsPrettySafe: It depends on how you feel. If you can eat and drink normally and feel fairly well, then a temperature of 101-102 will be tolerated fairly well. Over 102 I'd take something even if I felt OK. It also depends on what may be causing the fever, no matter how high. If it's a minor "viral" illness like a cold, no problem, but if you have some other serious medical problem then even 100.7 could be worrisome

You are not dying: No. You should not go to the er. You should try to stay hydrated and get your fever down. If you cannot do this well then you call and have your OB paged first.

Is it dangerous if I have a fever while pregnant?

Yes: A prolonged high fever, esp. In early preg. Can result in risk of damage to the developing infant. How high is too high? Certainly over 104 but I would treat any fever esp. Over 101. This is the reason we discourage hot tube use, over 100 for over 10 min.
