I've got bronchitis and the flu...I'm also 8 months pregnant. I have had contractions from getting dehydrated from pooping/puking and when I went into the doctors they put me on an antibiotic. I've taken 2 doses, but I'm still having a fever. I usually don't take anything for a fever unless it gets dangerously high 103-104 because I know it is your body fighting off an infection, but how high should I be letting it get without meds since I'm pregnant? It has been hovering between 100-101 today when it was between 99-100 yesterday. Do you think I should take anything? Like I said, I am on antibiotics which will probably help soon...would you wait it out a little while longer?

My OB told me to call him if I had a fever of 101. He told me to take some Tylenol when I had food poisoning to try to make me more comfortable.
