If you haven't already done so in the recent past, I would have your doctor test your thyroid. Go to your regular doctor and s/he should be able to tell you if you're sick or coming down with something or if it's something else. If you're not sick already, then you should also probably get the flu shot. The reason I suggest thryoid is b/c if you're not sick, then an out of whack thyroid can cause you to be unusually hot or cold. The thyroid gland controls hormones and metabolism and your body temperature. It's very important that if you do have a thyroid problem that you are taking thryoid medication while pregnant....b/c pregnancy makes your hormones crazy anyway. So, that's just something to check with your doctor about. More than likely, though, you're just coming down with something and your doctor (regular or ob) should be able to help with that. Hope you feel better soon.
