Unhappy bad case of the flu...

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

Re: bad case of the flu...

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.

Re: bad case of the flu...

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!
