    The temperature you mention is not considered high or abnormal so there may be no concern in that regard just yet. You may read more about an elevate body temperature in pregnancy in this article – http://www.healthhype.com/pregnancy-fever-high-body-temperature-when-pregnant.html

    However, the other symptoms like the nasal congestion, sore throat and cough may be indicative of an upper respiratory tract infection. You should see a doctor immediately, particularly since you are pregnant, and even a minor ailment can lead to complications. Your family doctor or even your gynecologist will be able to examine you further and prescribe the appropriate treatment if necessary.
