Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Fever, chills, rigors and painful urination are all indicative of a urinary tract infection. However the neck stiffness is a worrying symptoms and can be seen in meningitis (this is just a possibility). Since you are having high grade fever with such profuse sweating and chills, you should seek medical attention urgently.

UTIs in pregnancy should be treated promptly and properly. If your appointment with your doctor is getting delayed, I would advise you to go to the ER for medical attention.

Wish you all the best.
