10 weeks and have a cold (yes, in this weather!)

Hi everyone,

Currently 10 weeks pregnant. I've got a cold that started last Wednesday and on Thursday I had a weird migraine-type sight problem very briefly, that I think was due to overheating on my commute. Came home from work to rest, but after a stressful weekend (close family member unexpectedly in intensive care) I'm exhausted and my temperature has been around 37.4 since Thursday.

Any advice? I'm completely exhausted, stressed, feeling guilty for being off work, and yet can't imagine summoning up the energy to go in tomorrow. I've started taking paracetamol but so far it's done nothing. Bothering the GP seems unnecessary?

Make sure you are drinking plenty as well

What is your temperature normally? 37.4 isn't that high, unless it's high for YOU.

If you've had a temperature since thursday, that's nearly 5 days, it's not unnecessary to seek advice. Even if not pregnant
