Have a cold and 9 weeks pregnant

Samantha

I’ve had a cold since Christmas Day, and been having a fever of 100 on and off all weekend. I’m 9 weeks pregnant and although the doctor said I could take regular strength Tylenol, I’m a little scared because she previously told me to avoid taking any medication during the first trimester. Cough and stuffy nose are the death of me at the moment. Anyone else gone through this? I’m just a little paranoid because this is my first pregnancy ever so I want to take care of my little peanut!
