Anyone else experience hot flashes while pregnant?

I keep having these hot flashes every now and then. I don't know if they have anything to do with each other or not but half the time I have these hot flashes is when I have a contraction. Is that normal? I know this is probably TMI but last night my hubby and I were having sex and I had a contraction and a hot flash at the same time and he felt it too. So I know its not in my head. Any ideas?

  • Yeah, normal. It sucks, but there's not much you can do. I had them too. I'm hot to begin with, my hubby could barely stand the heat. :) Try eating ice-cream, a little extra weight won't hurt, just annoying later. :)

  • I seem to be getting both at the same time. Sucks since I'm in FL and its already about 100 with the humidity, dont need to add hot flashes on top of it! lol
