Why am I having hot flashes?

It’s totally normal to have hot flashes during pregnancy. Just think about the insane levels of hormones coursing through your body right now! Particularly drops in estrogen as well as your increased metabolism can cause crazy heat that will have you sweating in the middle of a polar vortex. Not to worry, this is all just a part of the process. Remember to wear layers, use a fan and drink some ice water. If for any reason, you think you’re fevering (and not flashing), call your doctor.
