fever in early pregancy

Has anyone else had fever during the beginning of pregnancy. I'm starting my 6th week and have been running a 99.6 fever since last night. In an earlier post I thought it was my allergies but now I'm not sure it is. During my last pregnancy that ended in miscarriage I had a low grade fever one weekend that lasted a couple of days. I'm just really worried. I don't want this to end in miscarriage also.

I had a high fever early in my first pregnancy. As long as the fever isn't too high and for several days straight, that is what they were worried about. That is such a low fever I wouldn't even take Tylenol, just let your body fight the virus. COngrats!

I think that is a fairly low grade fever.  Perhaps a bit of a cold or a touch of the flu?  it is completely safe to take tylenol during pregnancy, so perhaps try that and lots of fluids.  Never a bad idea to check with your Dr.  As far as I know there is no link between low grade fever and miscarriage.  A very high fever, perhaps, but low grade, not as far as I know.  Get some rest, drink lots of fluids and if you are feeling achy, it's fine to take tylenol.  Hope you feel better soon.
