Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

My temperature is 99.2, my feet are swollen, and I'm just not feeling right. I am 38 weeks pregnant and I really just want to know if this is normal.

how swollen are your feet? if they are extremely swollen I would give your doctor a call because that is a sign of pre-eclampsia which is definitely not good for you or the baby. Normal temp is 98.6 so I don't really consider that a fever since it isn't even 1 full degree above. but the swelling could be something.
keep an eye on that go ahead and call your OB and let them know and see if they want you to go to hospital or come see them or whatnot. I know my friends sister was induced b/c she had developed a fever close to her due date...they kept a watch on it but it kept going up so they went ahead and induced...what youre experiencing may not end up that way, but it never hurts to check in with your OB, and if you cant reach them you can always take a ride to your local hospital to be looked at! The swollen feet thing kinda comes with the territory, but they do get concerned if your swelling too much. either way i think you'll be ok since youre at 38 wks...good luck!
drink more liquid. that may help. and lay down and put your feet up.
