    hello,let me say Congrats on your pregnancy.note that taking paracetamol for a feverish condition will only take Care of the fever at that time only for it to return.have u registered for antenatal?if yes,complain at your next clinic visit.it's likely to be malaria in pregnancy quite common in this part of the world and also a cause of anemia in pregnancy.they may do a malaria test for us and give u antimalaria safe in pregnancy.u can take your paracetamol,but then go to your hospital tomorrow for treatment.when u are well,ensure u use insecticide treated net for sleeping, drain stagnant water in your surrounding,cut bushes around to reduce the breeding of mosquitoes.take care.
