Hot Flashes?

I'm 38 weeks pregnant, and well for about a week and a half now I've been having these crazy "hot flashes".... It gets to the point where I feel like puking or passing out... Does anyone know why I'm getting these, or what I can do about them? I can't even cook dinner!

  • It could be a number of things. I had them for the last month and a half of both my pregnancies and they turned out to be hormonal....call your OB, though, just in case.
