( 1st baby as u can probs tell!!) anyone else feel the same??dont wanna ring midwife, feel bit silly, also like im wastin their time coz im not really sure wot my symptoms are? any advice wud b great
That IS a high temperature, what you'd call a fever. Do ring the midwife and do it tonight. It could be something simple like a bladder infection (you don't always get typical symptoms in pregnancy) or another infection. You will not be wasting anybody's time. Get some RL advice and medical help tonight.
Oh, and take some paracetamol too and make sure you drink plenty of fluids.
Just as an example it might be an infection in where baby is, and you deffo don't want to leave that.
Good luck xx be ready with a bag of essentials if you feel up to it, in case they want you to go in - quite likely they will want you to pop up there for a bit of monitoring or just so they can see you.
