8 weeks pregnant and slight fever for over a week

I am 8 weeks pregnant and have had a low fever of 99.2 for over a week now. I also had other symptoms in the past like runny nose, slight pain in the throat when swallowing and some cough. Most of the latter symptoms are almost gone, but the fever remains. I ve taken tylenol for 5 days straight, 4 times a day. I am nervous that I still have a fever (and slight throat ache). Is this ok?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Mild rise in body temperature is normal during pregnancy due to high progesterone levels in the body.You stop taking tylenol and stop recording your daily temperature.For the sore throat, do warm saline gargles, drink warm water and take lozenges to relieve irritation.
