when you were pregnant, do you remember if your abdomen was warm to the touch where the baby and sac were?

i remember that mine was.
but my water broke and i was only 17+w, they said there was an infection but never told me what kind.
Could this have been a warning sign to an infection?
it was my first pregnancy, so i don't really know how your belly skin temp normally feels.
i had just assumed that it was the increased blood flow from the pregnancy, and the dr's or midwife never thought it was a bad sign.
anyone else experience this? normal?

  • depends on if you've been under a blanket or wearing extra warm insulating pants or a number of other things! not to my knowledge is it a sign pointing to an infection. Good luck tho. =)

  • It is most likely a little warmer because of all the extra blood flowing through your abdomen

  • yea, no extra blanket or insulation around the belly.
    and thanks, but its a little late for the good luck thing. unless your telling me good luck in finding a good answer.
    my water broke and i lost my baby 17w3d.
    thanks Jan.... thats kind of what i was thinking, but, just curious and wanted to know if others felt it too.
    it may have been a really slight temp change, im just more sensitive to noticing things like that because of my line of work.

  • My abdomen has been hot since about 6 months...I'm 37 weeks now. I always have my shirts pulled up at home and my hubby laughs at me. I've asked my doc about it and she told me its normal for me.
