Hi guys, I don't remember ever seeing this as a symptom, but has anyone had hot flashes while they were pregnant. Cause I am 5 weeks goin on 6 and in the afternoons I am soooooo hot, its like my temperature is elevated. Just last night my son was sitting on me and he was like "mommy you are sooo hot"

i'm wondering if this is normal or if it is something I need to worry about.

It's normal. My husband used to say he could feel my heat when we were laying in bed at night. Also, i'd have the a/c cranked and still be hot and he'd be bundled up under the comforter. It gets better though. I'm still warm most of the time but I don't wake up drenched in sweat anymore.

Yeah I was like that too. I'd get really really hot, just wait until after you deliver. It was much worse for me during that time.
