I am 10 weeks pregnant. I have felt horrible since I woke up this morning. I ate 3 times, but everything just came up. I'm running a slight fever of 99.3. My question is how do you know if it's just pregnancy symptoms or if you are actually catching something?

I am burning up, the slight fever, vomiting, headache, and I just don't feel good (sorry I don't know how else to explain it).

Thanks in advance.

  • 99.3 is NOT a fever. That's not even considered a low grade fever. Doctors won't consider it a fever until you hit 100.4.

    Other than that you do sound like you are catching something. Morning sickness is usually more nautia and vomitting than the headace and generally crappy feeling.

    Hope you feel better soon.

  • I added the temp. because I always run a lower than normal temp. I am usually around 78-79 degree no matter the time of day. And I was told by my OB that if I am running a temp that hits 100 that I should go to the emergency room.

  • A person cannot survive with a body temperature which is below 79oF or 26oC. Google it.

  • it sounds like u r getting sick.... Drink plenty of clear fluids, relax with ur feet up, snack on no salt added crackers or something that will set on ur stomach, talk to ur doctor if u r still doing it 2morrow. Dehydration while pregnant is not a good thing.
