should i go to the ER???

i have felt like i have had the flu for the past few days. which i know is a part of being preg. but i am sick. i am running a low fever. 100-100.9 i cant stop coughing which is causing really bad cramps in my ovaries and i dont know if i should wait until i go to the gyno or just go to the ER. i am only 5 weeks and do not have a gyno yet. so i will have to wait to make that first app. opinions please?

  • Try to get into see your doctor. Only go to the ER if you can't get into see your doctor. But you might need to be admitted to receive fluids etc. so don't dismiss it.

  • Make an appt with an OBGYN ASAP. Not sure that your symptoms warrant an er visit, but you never know. Is this your first pregnancy? If the pain is too much to handle when a doctor's office is not open, then go to the er. You need to take care of yourself and your baby. Just don't get too stressed out because that can make you thing the pain is worse than it really is. Sounds strange, I know, but it happens. Good luck.

  • Go to either a DR or ER even if it's for piece of mind having the flu while pregnant is not fun at all I had it when I was pregnant with my ds. Hope you feel better

  • i feel like i have the flu. but my ovaries also hurt. it could be because i am so early in the pregnancy and have a cyst on one of them. but i honestly feel like i have the flu.

  • P.S. Get a Ob/Gyn asap. At five weeks you should have one already. As a woman you should have had one a long time ago.
