I’m in my first trimester, and it feels like my thermostat has been turned up. How did you cope with this?
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I live in Chicago, and I’m cold all of the time. But during my pregnancies I was so uncomfortably hot. But there wasn’t much I could do about it.
I was very lucky that I had a wonderful obstetrician who encouraged me and told me that being so hot was normal. I just focused my attention on looking forward to having healthy babies.
