I see a lot of you saying you feel cold - is that a normal pregnancy symptom?
 
Or is it just winter?? I never had that with my pregnancies. :shrug:

I think it's normal enough, but it can also be a symptom of hypothyroidism or low-iron, so if you're (general you) feeling cold all the time you should ask your doctor to test for both in your initial pre-natal labs, IMO. Then at least you know that it's normal and not a symptom of anything but having a fetus attached.

I haven't either before this pregnancy. We are having a really mild winter here this year (it is the first time in 134 years of record keeping in this area that the temp has not gone below 0) and I've been pregnant over the winter before (although it was middle to late pregnancy not early pregnancy) I have been FREEZING with this pregnancy when usually I am warmer when pregnant.

I usually have a cold in early pregnancy, but I have also always experienced early pregnancy in january, and this time I had a kid in school! I think that is more than likely where I got this cold that just won't go away!

I ran hot with DD, this time I'm always cold. I'm taking it as a symptom bc I was never cold.

I haven't noticed a difference before an after pregnancy, but i've just had a low grade fever for about 6 months. I've been tested for everything under the sun I can think of and it all comes back perfectly normal. So IDK what that is about at all, but I often am cold, pregnant or not, because of my temp fluctuating during the day. It usually goes up to 100.4 or 100.6 When I am sick I have to watch it really close so it doesn't go too high and cook the baby! I take a Tylenol if it goes above 101. My doctor said it should harm the baby if kept under 103.

^^ That sounds awful. :( I'm sure they've tested you for a ton of different autoimmune disorders?


I've been really cold too, but I think it's just winter. We didn't winterize very well this year, and our house is much more drafty than usual.

Yes, they did check for autoimmune markers and blood cell counts, anemia, and thyroid levels. Also several different types of infection. All clear. It's a mystery. I'm thinking about getting a test for gluten intolerance. Maybe ??

I have been colder with this pregnancy so far and was throughout my last one as well. I was big in the winter and spring with my son and was still really cold despite my size. I hope my temperature is a little better this summer for that reason but i'm sure i'll be a hot mess! LOL

I only get cold after I eat, which is strange. I was going to ask the doc. I prefer not to take the pre-natals right now because they make me feel nauseous all day long, and after I started taking them was when I actually threw up. After not taking them for 4ish days I finally feel better and can think about food enough to want to eat it. Not to mention I can poop LOL If it is an iron issue I'll just deal with the goosebumps after eating I'm sure it'll go away eventually.

I'm not trying to get all up in your business, but have they tested for Lupus? A lot of times they won't test for it automatically and YOU have to be the one to mention it. If they've already tested for it then ignore me, lol.

Yep, I'm freezing most of the time! But that's normal for me in my pregnancies. I am usually cold in the first trimester-ish, and then as I get bigger I get warmer until I'm hotter than anyone else. :P

My theory is that more of my blood flow is going toward my belly and not circulating to my feet and hands as well. When my hands and feet get warm the rest of me is warm too, so it's just a matter of not getting enough blood flow to my feet and hands.

I was extremely cold at the beginning of the pregnancy and in week 6 they found out that my TSH level was a bit high, meaning I've got a bit hypothyroidism going on, so I've been taking meds. I still felt flu-like symptoms for a week or two afterwards. My white cell count was elevated too (and still is) and my hemoglobin was a bit low.
But for the past week I'm finally not as cold anymore. My TSH level went back to normal as of last week.

Yes, we did specifically check for that because I have a couple of cousins with it. But thanks for your idea :) It has completely stumped 3 doctors and I didn't go see the special specialist because I'm tired of getting tests and no results. If my OB wants me to investigate further because it might have an effect on the baby then I'll do it.
