its important to take your temperature to actually to ascertain actual body temperature. Post partum fever needs investigation because it could be due to most of the time a post partum endometritis. Also, you must ensure that the baby s temperature is ok. Monitor his temperature, whether he feeds well, whether he vomits and his general outlook.
You must keep yourself and the baby very very warm.
I would advise you stay very warm and XXXXXXX your gynecologist/obstetrician for reevaluation and advice.
I pray this helps, will be honored answering further questions if you have any other worries.
Best regards,
