Hot Flashes?

Hello everyone. I am about 6 weeks along, and I have been having hot flashes. Not to the point of needing to loose clothes, mind you, but like going full flush in my face. Has anyone else experienced this, or am I crazy? lol

  • Just like the wild hormone swings that cause hot flashes in menopause, pregnancy hormone swings can cause them too. A lot of pregnant women have skin that feels hot to the touch.

    Don't be hurt if your DH/SO won't cuddle you bc you are cooking him.

    Call them power surges!
