Coming down with something in 3rd trimester

Anyone had any kind of illness while in their latter weeks of pregnancy, like from 36 wks on? Not just a cold, but I'm fighting something, like feeling "achy/fluey", very exhausted, like I'm fighting something but no cold symptoms. Tylenol does help the aches/skin feelings but then when it wears off they're right back. It's tolerable and fetal movements are the same. Any input???

Thanks

In third trimester I felt like that all the time, but wasn't sick.  Just really tired, achey (achy) from the extra weight and mild swelling, etc.  It gets tough to get comfortable enough for a good nights sleep at this point, let alone all those kicks (my little guy was super active at night).  Still, it is best to talk to your OB.  I always say better safe then sorry!  Congrats on being in that home stretch.  You'll be holding your little one soon!!!!

Are you getting enough sleep?  I felt like that at times.  I did catch a cold later... which lingered, but eventually went away. I would follow up with your doctor.
