shouldn't I feel hotter than everyone else?

Its been much colder lately around here and I seem to be colder than everyone else. I'm only 7 weeks now, but shouldn't my temp be higher and wouldn't that make me feel warmer? But i seem to always be colder, and my hands and feet seem colder too! Am I just being overly worried?

  • What? It's your hormones... not everyone reacts to any situation the same way.

  • You can always take your temp, but I think that sounds right.

    If you are warmer than the air around feels cooler.
    Isn't this why people with fevers snuggle into a blanket with shivers??

  • You think b/c you're pregnant you should feel hotter then everyone else??? Not necessarily. Summer times I was always sooo hot, being winter I tend to be colder when it's cold out.

  • No pregnancy doesn't give you superhuman powers of warmth....

  • No, I wouldn't be worried about that. You're fine and normal. You might find that you're hotter than everyone else later on in your pregnancy when you're bigger.
