first time mom, a little freaked...fever typical?

Hi everyone. I was just wondering if anyone has had minor fevers in their first trimester. I am 6 weeks and I am a fever today of 100.3. I had a fever a couple weeks ago, though it was 101.1 and that was before I knew we were pregnant. I have had no other symptoms, other that being queasy (which has been everyday for a week), that relate to being sick. I didn't take anything and the fever went away. Is there anyone else who has experienced low grade fever on occasion with no major complications?

My first trimester I had some "hot flashes" which lasted a couple hours or so. My only symptom was a fever. My Dr advised me to drink lots of cold water, a semi-cool shower, and to relax. He had me check my temp every 20min or so. If I was over 101 for more than an hour they wanted me to come in. It was random and I stopped having them about 15 weeks and was fine.

I had  low grade fever too. My doctor said it could be just the heat and to drink lots of water. She drew some blood and checked my urine just to make sure there wasn't any infection, just to be on the safe side.
If your fever went away I wouldn't worry. But I would advice to keep checking it just in case, and if it comes back go to doctor

Yes it's common for me. The only explanation I can give is your body and hormones adjusting.

This actually makes me feel a lot better! Thanks ladies. We have been TTC for 3 years and after 5 IUs finally have had success, but now I am paranoid about every little thing. I feel a little neurotic right now :)

I believe your basal temp stays up when your pregnant, during the time you would normally get you period your basal temp goes up if you conceive then it stays up and if not it goes back down. Some woman use this method as either birth control or ways to predict ovulation.
