  • Im not trying to freak you out. Your fever might be nothing but, An infection in your uterus can lead to pre-term labor. Not feeling well, including having a fever. Your belly may hurt when you press on it? If not then I would say you were ok. But the be on the safe side I would call your doctor or midwife. Good Luck and Congrats on your future little one.

  • No because I didn't and I've been sick twice this pregnancy. Just make sure you temperature doesn't go above 102 because it can cause fetal damage. Make sure to take Tylenol when your fever is up. I would call your doctor and make an appointment to be on the safe side.

  • Even you are preterm labor, my OB told me when you are 36wks your baby is fully develop if any sign of contraction or anything he will just deliver the baby. Make sure you take some medicine and bundle up and drink a lot of water.
