|Even though it’s winter and everyone else is warmly
dressed, I feel hot all the time, and am still wearing summer
clothes. It is really bothering my friends, who are sure I
am going to end up with pneumonia! Is it normal to be so hot
What happens to your system when you are pregnant is that
your metabolism increases. This means that even when you
are resting, your system is working harder and faster than
usual. In addition, you have a larger volume of blood. This
accounts for the fact that many women feel very warm and
perspire a lot when they are pregnant.
The downside of this can be that you feel overheated at
night and it affects your sleep. The increased perspiration
is designed to help you cool off a bit, and is also an effective
way for your system to rid itself of toxins. However, it
can be a bit unpleasant to perspire that much.
