Ugh constantly. I have them at work all the time. I'm 23 weeks and I've been sent home because they get so bad I almost pass out sometimes.

Definitely, 90% I can't have my heat on in my car and have to have my window down cause I get so warm and the warmest it's been here this winter is 40 degrees, most the time it's below 0. I can't even wear more than a tank and shorts at home. I don't so much get the flashes back and forth mostly just extremely warm now I'm 16 weeks.

Hello & SO sorry for your discomfort. I suffered terribly from hotflashes-to the point of it ruining my life! I tried hormone replacement therapy & everything from black cohosh...to anything else you can imagine. I finally found a total help in the oddest place LOL. A friend sent me to a psychic, because she felt so bad for the decline in my life! Anyway, this psychic recommended taking turmeric powder- 1/5 of a teaspoon 3 times a week. I thought, what the heck? So, every Sunday, Tuesday & Friday I faithfully took my dose {doesn't have to be exactly 1/5-as it does not have any side effects} & OMG!!!!!!! My hotflashes went down by about 80% & were much more manageable. It takes a few weeks to get into your system, so don't think it's not working until you've at least given it 2 months or so. I'd love to hear your story after trying this...it has given me back my life. BUT, I got cocky after about a yr & stopped taking this & WHOP! I got hotflashes back like a punch in the gut! Good luck & even though it seems like it's too easy an answer, what have you got to lose? Turmeric also helps in many other problems. Please give feedback so others have luck as well.

Please note that you should ALWAYS consult your doctor before beginning any regimen or change in diet when you're pregnant, even if you think, "it's only turmeric."  Pregnancy is not a good time to test out unproven remedies without checking with your doc.
I TOTALLY agree!
