    Default viruses and high temps in pregnancy

    DS (3) is sick with a sinus infection and has had sky high temps for 3 days now. Obviously i'm giving him everything i can to keep his temp down and he's on ab's too.
    But i've caught it too, or something like that. I feel like cr*p and have a temp of 38C. i'm only 10wks preg. My question is uis this dangerous to bub? i know you're not meant to overheat and i've been taking only panadol and trying to keep as cool as possible. I'm just scared of something happening to bub. Please reasssure me!

    Hi op
    I think u are doing the right thing by keeping ur fever down and trying to stay cool. I'm pretty sure that a gp would advise u just to take regular panadol and rest. Over heating can cause problems for bubs but from memory it's a temp above 38.5 that is more worrying. Keep doing what ur doing and if ur worried see ur dr for reassurance. Hugs

    Unfortunately there's not alot you can do, if you're temp is high for 3 days, I would go see gp, that's how I work it with the kids
