I was like this also, from about 4w-10w. It finally got better this week. There was a post on this subject a couple of weeks ago, and apparently it's pretty common. I'm like you, I had no idea! I did this part in spring last time :) I got in the habit of spending lots of time on the couch, in front of the fire and with my laptop on my lap b/c it's warm (just push it back so your tummy doesn't get too warm). At work I wear an extra shirt and sometimes put on my winter coat. I also bought flannel sheets for the bed. All of this only helped somewhat but like I said, it got better this week, so hopefully it will for you too.

ME TOO!!! I just cannot seem to get warm EVER! I am not too worried about it though...I just bundle up and snuggle up on the couch and hope for the best. Hopefully we won't stay cold too long! H&H 9 months!!!

I am always freezing my hands and my feet I have been wrapped in a blanket 24/7. I was like that with my first child as well. I think its from the blood flow going to the baby or something? Who knows but it isn't uncommon it appears:-)

What you're experiencing is normal but it can also signal anemia. I have pregnancy induced anemia. I was diagnosed after my doctor did a complete blood count. It's worth mentioning your symptoms to your doc so that you can begin taking iron supplements if you are anemic.

I go from hot to freezing in two seconds. I prop the windows open and there's 3 feet of snow outside and the next minute I'm under a heating blanket. The heated blanket works good when I'm cold...3 out it on low...and snuggle up!
