First pregnancy question?

Postby marisajl » Sat May 02, 2015 1:40 pm

So I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but this is my first pregnancy ever. So yesterday I started feeling super weird. My head was tingly and I could feel it in my jaw and my eyes hurt like they were strained. And taking a deep breath made me feel like I needed to cough. Normally I wouldn't be concerned but since I'm only 5 weeks I'm so scared to get sick and have it bad for the baby. Is this normal or okay? My face and body is so hot I'm sweating but I wasn't running a fever this morning when I took my bbt. It was a little elevated, low 99s but not super high. Should I be worried, or is it okay to get cold/flu like symptoms?

Also, I used my last digi today and it said 3+ weeks which I think is pretty good for being exactly 5 weeks today and exactly 3 weeks since O. I just heard someone say once she got sick then had a missed miscarriage and she was wondering if the fever caused it so now I'm super paranoid.

I had a horrible cold (sore throat, headache, coughing, congestion) for 3 weeks in my first trimester. After a week, I went to the doctor, and they since it was just a cold, to wait it out and it wouldn't cause any issues. But, I'd say if you have a fever, you should definitely see a doctor. Of course, if you are worried, calling your doctor to check never hurts :)

I've had some type of a cold every pregnancy, its not harmed baby but as always visit the doctor to make sure you don't have a virus that may transfer over to baby. Common cold is ok.

Thanks! I might try and go in Thursday if I'm still feeling it. Now it's a stuffy nose with green snot/phlegm and also chest congestion

There are a few things that can come w/ pregnancy - dizziness, shortness of breath, headaches. These are all your hormones - at least that how it has been for me. I get terrible headaches in the first tri-mester and third.

I hope the symptoms don't get too severe, but if they continue, I agree that you should check w/ your doctor.

Also remember your vision can be a special clue against issues:

Are eye symptoms during pregnancy ever cause for concern?

Yes, eye symptoms can signal specific problems during pregnancy. High blood pressure or preeclampsia, for example, may cause vision disturbances.

Be sure to let your doctor or midwife know immediately if you have any of the following symptoms:
•double vision
•blurry vision
•sensitivity to light
•temporary loss of vision
•seeing spots or flashing lights

Also call your caregiver if you notice swelling or puffiness around your eyes – another symptom that may accompany preeclampsia. Eye pain or redness should also prompt a call to your caregiver.
