Fever a sign of early pregnancy?

Okay... I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping out loud, but I'm still pretty negative. Again, just hoping.

I'm about 3-4 dpo, and I'm running a low grade fever (99+). Is that ever a very early sign of pregnancy?

  • i dont think so. are you feeling the fever or have you been temping every morning(bbt)? and thats how you know about it.

  • At 3-4 dpo you're unlikely to even have implantation yet. 'High' temps are a sign of pregnancy, but this doesn't necessarily mean feverish temps, just 'high' temps on the basal thermometer (which measures temp a lot more accurately than a standard thermometer.) Could you be coming down with something? Hope you get a BFP, but not sure that this is in any way connected!

  • It might be the flu.

  • For my personal situation, yes, I had an elevated temp. I used a basal thermometer to check it and it went up about a week after ovulation and it would be around 98.5 to 98.9.

  • Your basal body temperature (taken first thing when you wake up in the morning, before you get out of bed or anything) goes up after ovulation, and sometimes it goes up again after implantation (6-10 days after ovulation). But a higher waking temperature doesn't mean anything except possible infection, or at least fighting an infection.
