I am 16weeks pregnant n my body temperature is always

Patient : I am 16weeks pregnant n my body temperature is always 99degree at evening.But in morning it is normal.Will this affect my baby.
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. Having a body temperature of 99 degrees is close to normal. Here is what you can do. Use sponging to get the temperature back to normal. Also, do not use paracetamol to reduce the fever as it might cause fetal problems. If the fever persists, please see a Doctor or your Gynecologist. Hope this helps you. All the best.
