waking up drenched in sweat? x posted in april

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Hi Layla,
Are you breastfeeding?? This was the first sign for me that I was coming down with mastitis?? I'd have terrible night sweats and just put down my daily exhustion and unwellness down to a new baby. Have it checked out if it continues. Get bettter soon. :D

mrs brom, its funny that u say that because i have a part of my boob that i feel cant get drained of milk. ive been letting her nurse on it, i even pumped it but i cant get it out. it doesnt hurt, it isnt hot or red, so i just figured id have to pump some more. maybe its more serious than i thought.

Night sweats during the 4th tri is very common. I had them. I know a lot of women do. Blame it on your hormones still being a mess!

I remember this. I sweated like crazy for about 2 months. I had an appt at 2w PP and my doc said it was normal. Just your body getting rid of all of the excess water from pregnancy. Between the weight fromt he pregnancy and the sweatign I felt like a pig.

I keep a towel by my bed and when I wake up drenched, I can towel dry myself. I figured it was just hormonal. It is super yucky and annoying tho I agree!

Yep..I've been getting this too, it sucks. I hate being all sweaty. i am pretty sure its a combination of hormones and shedding the excess fluid from pregnancy.

It's normal. I had it after all three of my children and I am unable to breastfeed.

I had the complete opposite, I would wake up freezing and shaking half to death (like teeth chattering and all). I only had heat sweats during pregnancy, but I did read that it is totally normal.

I've been having them since the first day I gave birth and they're yucky! I don't get them every night but nearly. Glad to know I'm not the only one and that it's normal.
