Are hot flashes normal with pregnancy? I haven't had them before. And tonight I keep getting them. I'm ready to tear out my hair! Driving me insane. I'm 30 + 5.

I'm 29+3 and have been having them for a week or so. They're normal, increased blood in your body, plus just being hot from baby getting bigger :)

Bah, the symptoms just keep getting bigger every day it seems! I'm ready to go stand under the coldest shower possible! But wait, in a few minutes I'll be cold again. Insane. I'm going to go insane. Lol

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. Check with your OBGYN first, as U R pregnant!
