  • I'd stay home and rest unless it got over 101. She could take some tylenol.

  • I was told over 101 to contact my midwives. That said I did have a fever that lasted 4 days two weeks ago. When tylenol didn't work I had to go to Urgent care b/c it was day 3 and a Sunday. The drs gave me fluids b/c I was dehydrated. They said that there wasn't much else to do, I was 16 weeks.
