I had 104 fever for a few hour during the 4th week of my pregnancy. Now i'm in my 18th week of pregnancy. I'm worried that has my fever caused harm to my baby?

Most likely not : I know the media are full of the danish study that pregnant women who reported having the 'flu had twice as many children with autism; women who reported having fever for > a week had 3x as many, & women who required antibiotics had a slight increase. . However, these were self-reports by phone. While it's worth getting a flu shot, no harm was done by short-term illnesses.See www.Aap.Org. ...Read more

Will 100-101.5 fever from viral infx >7d during early pregnancy (4-5wks) pose any risk to baby? Tylenol (acetaminophen) only lowers it to 99.5-100.5. Take it or not?

Fever: I have to admit I am very uncomfortable having you home without any medical evaluation with a week long persistent fever. And that is pregnant or not.

i never had any rash / fever during my pregnancy. Is my baby safe?

Probably: Early in pregnancy babies will generally miscarry or be fine. Not all babies will have congenital rubella and the fact you didn't get sick and have good igg if a good sign; the igm is likely a "red herring", it isn't part of the usual screening anyway, just the igg; good luck, it should be fine. ...Read more

If : If you took your temp.Under your arm (axillary) then you need to add one point, therefore making your temp. 101.2. Anything over 100.4 is considered a fever. For the future contact your doctor if this occurs. Also note that tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe to take during pregnancy for fever.
