  • It could be the pregnancy but like brailynsmama said it could be stress. When I get stressed I usually take a bubble bath and that soothes me or I'll go buy the most recent Cosmo magazine and curl up on the couch, gatta love those guilty pleasures. =)
    Hope you feel better!

  • Yes, yes, yes and yes. I was ALWAYS hot, and that's VERY normal. Where do you think the phrase "a bun in the oven" came from? Stress is normal, but it's not good for the baby, so do some things to help yourself relax. Do some exercise, too, because not only will it help keep the weight down, but the endorphins will help with the stress, it will keep your energy up, and it will help you bounce back after the baby comes. Emotional and moody you can't do much about; that's just hormones, but be sure to recognize it when you have an emotional outburst and apologize when you say something out of line (which is inevitable). Hang in there, mommy!
