Hot and flushed face
luv2beaMT posted:
This evening, I noticed my face (including chin and ears) were feeling very hot and flushed. I am indoors in the a/c so it's not a temperature thing. It has been a couple hours now and it hasn't gone away. Should this be something I should be concerned about? I tried looking it up, but couldn't find much info. I have my first trimester prenatal visit in two days.

Hope we get an answer. I got really overheated the other day for no reason. My mom said hormones.

Here's a discussion from last year about pregnancy hot flashes:

Pregnancy Hot Flashes

Looks like you're not the only one! But please do bring this up to your doctor during your visit this week.

I had several nights of hot flashes after I had my 1st baby. I woke up drenched - hot and exhausted, not a fun time!

The thing is, I haven't been drenched in sweat and hot all over like you would be because of hormonal "hot flashes". It is just my face.

I'm eager to know what your doctor says - have you gotten an answer yet?
