Yes! I never noticed that so much with the others, but I certainly did with the last baby. I was freezing all day long, and then I would roast at night! There were exceptions, like the occasional hot spell during the day or the occasional cool night. I don't think it is necessarily linked to age though, I know there were other younger women who had the same problem. Apparently your body sometimes has trouble with regulating body temp because of more blood flow, or something like that. Seems hard to believe there is that much more blood in your system that early on, but that was one of the explanations I read. Anyway, don't worry, it may be annoying but it is normal!

I am 6w4d, and mine started before I had a positive pregnancy test, I was having night sweats, and hot flashes.
