it is called hot flushes
Yes, it’s perfectly normal to experience hot flushes during pregnancy. They are very common at night, affecting about one in three pregnant women. Your changing hormone levels can increase blood flow to your skin, making you feel warm and flushed. The blood surging to your skin raises its surface temperature, making your skin look red and blotchy. Hot flushes usually affect your head, neck and chest. You may only feel flushed for a few seconds or the flush may last several minutes. You may find that you sweat more as your body tries to cool down.
Try these tips to keep cool- Wear layers of loose clothing. You can then remove layers if you feel too hot. Wear clothes made from natural fibres, such as cotton and linen, which allow more air to circulate near your skin. Keep your bedroom cool to help you sleep better through night-time flushes. If it’s hot during the day, leave the curtains closed so your room doesn’t warm up. Buy a spray bottle and fill it with water. Spritz your face regularly to cool you down. Or keep a hand-held mini fan in your bag. Take an extra shower a day to help you feel fresh. Pop some wipes in your bag to freshen your face while you’re at work
