hey everyone- does anyone know what I can do for the flu? I'm not really sure what medicine I can take. I am 35 weeks if that makes a difference with medicine.Also, I've been having a fever of about 101-is this harmful for the baby? I'm so miserable I can barly stand it! hope you all are better then me
the paperwork that I get from my doc says call if you temp gets over 100. when I called he told me to take tylenol and call back if it didn't work. also try to stay hydrated that will help too.I hope you feel better.
You need to take something for the fever, that can cause some problems with the baby, I think mainly at the developmental stages though. If it is actually the flu, sometimes it's hard to tell, you will probably be at a higher risk for pneumonia, cause your immune system is compromised from being pregnant. But most likely you will be ok, if it were me, I would probably call the dr, or go in just to make sure.
Hope you feel better!
