  • Mine never went up. It stayed the same. It could be a sign of infection or an illness. 20 degrees is a lot and if your regular temp is 98 or 99 then you would be dead. If its only 70 degrees then you would also be in the wrong end of the spectrum for it to be 20 degrees over.

  • If you do the math from 98 up 20 degree's would be 118 and in order for it to be in the normal to high range you would have to be in the 78 degree range to like 85. do you mean 2 degree's?

  • Me either and if my temp went up 20 degrees I think I would be on fire and not in labor and the weather outside going up that much didn't work in my case, it was 78 out the day I went into labor and was snowing 3 days later. I guess she should have said body temp or weather temp.
