I have a fever. :(

Wouldn't you know it? I find out I'm pregnant this morning and this afternoon I have body aches, sore throat and a fever! I can't even remember the last time I had a fever. I have been battling some respiratory stuff for over 2 weeks and I was just starting to get over it, too. Now I'm trying to remember what all I can safely take. I know regular strength Tylenol is okay. We only have extra strength so I took half a dose. Think that's okay? It doesn't seem to be helping though. This is miserable.

Oh I'm sorry to hear you're feeling bad. I've been battling a horrid sinus infection for a week now and have been running a fever as well. I heard that extra strength tylenol is fine as long as you don't go over the recommended daily dosage. I've been taking tylenol as well and trying not to take much else. Are you on antibiotics for the respiratory stuff? My docs made a big deal about me getting on a safe antibiotic right away and it's helping though I wish it would work faster. Hope you get to feeling better soon!

I take extra strength Tylenol as well just follow the dose. Also Benadryl and sudafed are approved by me docs. Robitussin too but if you're over the cough you won't need it.
