Low-grade Fever...

I'm 11 dpo today and I've noticed that I've had a low-grade fever for a couple days now... I've read it's because of a rise in progesterone but I've never had this before AF showed up.. Is it normal?? Could it be a sign of pregnancy??
Any answers are welcomed!!

I didn't take my temps but now that I'm pregnant I'm HOT! I'd say my temp is up at least 1 degree from average.

If you don't mind me asking.. did you feel unusually warm before you got your BFP??
I'm 12 dpo, AF due in 3 days, and I took my BBT this morning and it was 98.8, which is alot higher than what it normally is (97.7)...

I ran about 99 through all 3 of my pregnancies. This time, I'm freezing cold. It's so weird...

That is weird.. with my son, I guess I didn't pay much attention in the beginning, but I guess I was a little warmer.. But now I've been running a fever for a couple days now.. It usually starts in the afternoon and goes through the day. Nothing really brings it on, so I'm thinking maybe it's because of an increase in progesterone, which would be good because with my son my doctor prescribed me progesterone suppositories because I've had 2 miscarriages before and he thought it might be due to low progesterone..

Oh well I guess everyone and every pregnancy is different lol.. Smile

I guess I'll just have to wait and see if I get my BFP or AF... Smile
Thanks for your input!!

My body temp rose throughout each of my pregnancies, too. I think you might be on the right track! GL!

That was one of my first symptoms- a bit of a fever- made me just feel kinda blah and my throat hurt! GOOD LUCK!
