Hello again Doctor, every night while sleeping my body temperature rises a lot and i feel dehydrated and i feel so hot that i have to de-cover myself and get up and drink water. I have not measured it but its like 99-100 degree. I actually do not feel other symptoms of fever but only the high body temperature. Is it one of the pregnancy symptom or something else?

Brief Answer:
Yes. It is due to pregnancy.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The raised body temperature is one of the signs of pregnancy. It happens due to raised levels of progesterone in the body.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
