I'm 7w6d pregnant and my temperature is always 37.2-37.4. I always feel very feverish. My body also hot to touch. Is this normal or I have fever?

I'm 7w6d pregnant and my temperature is always 37.2-37.4. I always feel very feverish. My body also hot to touch. Is this normal or I have fever?

Not a fever: These temperatures are not a fever, they are in the normal range for a human body. It IS fairly common for women when pregnant to feel warm and have even a "slight" temperature elevation (like you) due to progesterone. No worries. If your temp goes over 38.0 contact your doctor.
