  • Do you have a fan that you could blow on you?

    You could always stand with the fridge or freezer open haha :D I'm going through a hot spell too, I didn't really have issues with it until week 37 or so.

  • My first pregnancy I was always hot flashing. Now I'm pregnant, and I'm usually always cold. Strange how different.

  • Those pesky hormones, along with increased blood flow to the skin and increased metabolism during pregnancy, can make you sweat like a linebacker.
    Perpetually damp these days? Here come those hormones again. Their effect, along with increased blood flow to the skin and increased metabolism during pregnancy, can make you sweat like a linebacker. To stay cool, wear loose, light clothing, drink plenty of water, and crack some windows or crank up the AC (even if your partner is freezing — your comfort definitely takes priority now). A sprinkle of talc-free powder can also help absorb some moisture (plus help to prevent a heat rash that could crop up underneath all that sweat).
