5wks preggo and fever! HELP!

Just one more thing to worry about...I've had a fever of 100.5-100.9 the last 2-3 days now and I'm reading all these things about my baby being at risk for m/c or neural tube defects! It says over 101 and I was awfully close to that, and who knows what it could've gotten up to at night, not to mention that I did take a hot bath not knowing yet that I had a fever so it could've gotten up to 102!
I'm so worried! Anyone else have a fever this early on and the baby turn out to be just fine? Anyone know what the odds are of having a problem?

I don't have any advice; I hope some other mamas pop in here, but I just wanted to send hugs I hope you are all feeling better soon!

Have you been sick?

I ask because I normally run high early in preg. Usually just under 101 for a week or so then it goes back down to closer to 99. something. Its like my body prepping the oven or something. Gets it nice and warm in there for the bean.

Happened with my DS and hes fine. Happened this preg too and so far everything has been fine (28 weeks now).

If you havent been sick it just might be your body adjusting to being pregnant.

Good luck and feel better!

Try some Tylenol to bring the fever down if you're worried.

Thanks ladies!
I did take the tylenol and I only had to take it once last night b/c the fever must've broke, guess I'm just worried about the damage that may already have been done!
I have been sick, w/ a really bad cough and achiness and runny nose, my DD's too!
I just really really hope everything is OK, after having gone through 2 m/c I just want this baby to be OK...can't go through anything bad again!
