I Think I Have Strep...

My body has been "trying " to come down with something for a couple weeks now. Now im coughing up stuff from deep down and also have a sore throat. Yesterday I woke up with a low fever -took some tylenol and it went away. I feel icky. But not too bad. I looked in the mirror lastnight at my throat and have a very little bit of white spots on my tonsils. Soooo I called my obs office and they are closed for today. So now im wondering if its urgent enough....Or should I worry adn go to the er?? I dont know if this will affect my baby or not. Please help- this is my first pregnancy and I am 27 weeks along. Thank you

I would say if it is really stressing you out then go to the er just to make sure.

If you are able to wait until tomorrow then call your ob first thing tomorrow morning.

In my opinion, I would go to the er just in case. This is a fragile life that we are dealing with here.

I would rather be safe.

Good luck!

hey michelle


I know this will sound gross but sometimes when you get white spot in your mouth it is yeast infection and its really gross. It doesnt hurt you but is cause from hormone changes I had it right after my daughter and you have to gargle some weird tasting stuff. The only thing you really need to becarful of when prego is measles and chicken pox. Talk to dr though they know whats best just thought I would let you know something
