if the temperature is with in 100 than it is not fever. it has to be 100 or more for you to say it is fever. so in the evening when you feel feverish or chills are there that time you take your temperature and if it is more than 100 than consult with your doctor.

please get yourself checked. it is not good to have fever in pregnancy time.

Fever in pregnancy indicate some infection. if its tiredness then its ok. but fever is not normal in pregnancy. so get some blood and urine test. so it wil help you to find out the cause of infection.

No, you are not having fever, please don't take un necessary medication. If temperature rises above 100 degree F then consult the gynaecologist or the physician
