Viral infections in pregnancy are major causes of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Infections can develop in the neonate transplacentally, perinatally (from vaginal secretions or blood), or postnatally (from breast milk or other sources). The clinical manifestations of neonatal infections vary depending on the viral agent and gestational age at exposure. The risk of infection is usually inversely related to gestational age at acquisition, some resulting in a congenital malformation syndrome.

The foetus gets affected by any disease which mother is suffering from, unless it is prevented medically... but viral fevers are generally not prevented medically in advance so the answer is yes.

It's not necessary that the foetus will be effected by the viral fever of which its mother is suffering from.It doesn't affect the child inside.
