    have a bit of fever: what to do?

    Hello,

    I had a little bit of fever during the week-end (maximum read was 37.3 degrees). This morning, I still have 37.1 degrees. Do you think it's wiser to see the doctor? Then, do I go to my gyne or a normal doctor?

    thanks for your answer

    By the way, I'm 16 weeks pregnant.

    A temperature of 37.1 degrees is quite normal. A fever would be if your temperature went above 38 degrees and then it only becomes more of a concern at 39 or 40 degrees. You can take paracetamol during pregnancy to bring down low grade fevers. Obviously if you are concerned you should go to your doctor and for fevers I would personally just go to a GP.
