I probably sleep between 5 and 7 hours a night during the week and 7 to 8 hours a night on weekends, but I find myself taking absurdly long naps on weekends, too, like anywhere from six to nine hour ...
Every once in a while, I get this weird headache. It starts out with spots before my eyes, almost as if I have looked at something bright for a while. Then, where those spots are, everything starts ...
Yes, I think everyone is almost right, but I'm pretty sure that kids are cooler because of the lower altitude. lol...just kidding.
I just argued with someone this subject today. Mine is always 97.5 and both my daughters are the same. I think the whole 98.6 thing just may be wrong. My doctor said that my low body temp had to do with the fact that my blood pressure is low as well, normally 80 something of 60 something.
Most people think of a "normal" body temperature as an oral temperature of 98.6 ï¿½F(37 ï¿½C). This is an average of normal body temperatures. Your temperature may actually be 1ï¿½F (0.6ï¿½C) or more above or below 98.6 ï¿½F(37 ï¿½C). Also, your normal body temperature changes by as much as 1ï¿½F (0.6ï¿½C) throughout the day, depending on how active you are and the time of day. Body temperature is very sensitive to hormone levels and may be higher or lower when a woman is ovulating or having her menstrual period.
Children whose temperatures are lower than 102 degrees Fahrenheit (38.9 degrees Celsius) usually don't require medication, unless they're uncomfortable. There's one important exception to this rule: If you have an infant 3 months or younger with a rectal temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) or higher, call your baby's doctor or go to the emergency department. Even a slight fever can be a sign of a potentially serious infection in very young infants.
For older children, take behavior and activity level into account. By watching how your child behaves, you can get a pretty good idea as to whether he or she has a minor illness or needs to be seen by a doctor.
How Do I Know if My Child Has a Fever?
A gentle kiss on the forehead or a hand placed lightly on your child's skin is often enough to tell that your child has a fever. However, this method of taking a temperature (called tactile temperature) is dependent on the person doing the feeling and doesn't give an accurate measure of a child's temperature.
By using a reliable thermometer, you can tell if your child has a fever if his or her temperature is at or higher than one of the following levels:
* 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) measured rectally (in the bottom)
* 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit (37.5 degrees Celsius) measured orally (in the mouth)
* 99 degrees Fahrenheit (37.2 degrees Celsius) measured in an axillary position (under the arm)
37 celcius i think
Average is 98.6, but normal varies from person to person. It can varie about 1.5 degree.
It is the same for child and adults.
The average temperature for an adult and a child orally is 98.6 degrees F. A childs temperature usually rises and falls quite often because of skin sensitivity and unfully developed hypothalmus regulation(Which controls temperature).
98.6 for both
body temperature can very between 95 and 99 degrees, it just depends on the person, that's all.. i usually run pretty cool at around 96 degrees
An adult will have a normal temp of 98.6, if there's any variation, it will be lower...97.7,97.8,97.9. On the other hand, a baby, or toddler can be right as rain, at 98.8,98.9,99.0,99.1, is not uncommon........................LATER......
98.6 for adult babies usually run higher and it depends how you take the temperature, I would be concerned with anything over 100 degrees.
they are the same-98.6 hope this helps.
average body temperature for an adult is 98.6, but i can very from as low as 97.0 to as high as 99.7, for a child it is slightly different, as low as 97.2 and as high as 99.2
