  • You shouldn't let your body temp get higher than that while you're pregnant. Take a fever reducer :) Call the doc.

  • I agree take some Tylenol and wait for the doctor to call back. The fever is probably causing the headache

  • My doctor always says to me if a fever gets higher than 101 you need to call the doctor, they'll either sent you to e.r. or give you another option. Call your doctor just to be safe. Take some tylenol, it's safe to take while pregs.

  • Always call your doctor if you think something could be wrong. Better safe than sorry.
