In brief: Hormonal changes

There are rapid hormonal changes ongoing during pregnancy that the body is also rapidly adjusting to accomodate.
As a result, the rise( or drop) in estrogen levels will often cause "hot flashes".

Pregnancy produces unique swings in hormones that can create hot flashes.
Best treatment is low-tech - a fan or fewer blankets.
