I have!!! this is my 3rd pregnancy and I never experienced them in the first two. My doc asked me if I had any fever symptoms and I mentioned the hot flashes.He said its normal! My doc said as my hormones balance out they should go away!

I am currently 27 weeks pg and I had horrible hot flashes in my first trimester. I would have to sleep with a fan on and no covers at all. It's actually gotten better than it was at the beginning though! Although I still get hot at work when everyone else is freezing!
