I got either a cold or flu along a fever. Worried about any harm the fever could have had on my baby

Right after I found out I was pregnant (at 4 weeks, 3 or 4 days) I got either a cold or flu along a fever. My husband had been sick as well before this and most likely got it from him. The fever was only over 100 (102.3 max) for maybe a couple hours at most, the rest of the time it was around 99. The illness lasted about 2 days total with headache, chills for a little bit but I only ran a temperature above normal for at most 12 hours. I am not 8 weeks pregnant and am worried about any harm the fever could have had on my baby. Thanks!

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

A mere fever wouldnt affect your baby.But it is very important for you to get evaluated for the reason of the fever.It could be an Urinary infection or a respiratory infection.Please visit your Obstetrician and get routine tests done.

Please avoid taking any kind of medicine without your doctor`s advise.

Take care.
