  • Monitor your temp, and let your doc know if you get a fever. Drink plenty of fluids and get as much rest as you can. You can take tylenol or even extra strength tylenol for the aches and pains, but you may want to check with your practitioner before you do (I took it when I was pregnant and had migraines and then later, the flu).
