Hot flashes

I don't think I ever had hot flashes with my first son, but I am getting them many many times a day now. I am 31 weeks and they are pretty miserable. My question is, is there anything I can do about it, and they are normal right?

  • I never had them with my first pregnancy either but with this one I get them like crazy.

  • Very normal. And they might not stop until several weeks post partum. But I don't think there's anything you can do about them, except have a fan or walk-in freezer handy when they hit.

  • I agree with Dragon.. I kinda wish I had a walk-in freezer handy.. It has been so hot here recently (running 105-110 most days) that when I go outside I get so over heated I can't cool down.. THEN I get hot flashes on top of it >< Its horrible but normal.
