  • With my 3rd child I did.  It started about a week before I had her.  I didn't notice it, my hub did.  I kept turning down the heat and sweating really badly.

  • It's normal to feel warmer than usual during pregnancy.

  • Hot flashes are definitely normal any time during pregnancy, thanks to those wonderful hormones! Those hormones are a likely culprit in your inability to sleep too. Also, as your baby grows and crowds your organs more and more (stomach in particular) it's also normal to lose your appetite. So I wouldn't worry too much, and if it is a sign delivery is near, you're already full term and have nothing to worry about. :) Good luck!
