So last week I got a cold. Went to doc and he told me it was a virus, but my asthma was acting up. So he sent me home with an inhaler. I felt better on monday. Not completely but better. Well tuesday I started coughing again bad. So I called to get an apt today. They can't see me till tomorrow evening. Now a few hours after that phone call a fever comes on all of a sudden 102.5 now, headache, and my chest feels yucky its hard to describe. Well I have used my inhaler, robitussin, and tylenol and cold packs. And nothing is helping! What else should or could I do? Oh and I am around 5 weeks pg. Please don't think I am being a baby, I want to very much to be healthy but its not happening!

I would go right to the ER.  You could always have the flu, and they could try to help you there.. even if it's just to keep your temp down.  The high temps early pregnancy are scary.  Please go in if you can!

I was gonna try to make it to tomorrow but I am not sure I can. I am home alone with my two kids. My dh usually gets home around 2 in the morning. So I think I might go in when he gets home.

I waited 10 days! Well I went to the doc after about the 5th day and he told me it was a virus. Now I am on round the clock breathing treaments as well as 3 other kinds of meds!
