I'm burning up? Help, how do I relieve this!

It's so hot to me and I can't even sleep because I'm so uncomfortable. I have so many complaints on here lately but it's so many things bothering me. I have to not wear anything and I'm still hot and my pillows are all warm and I can't stand it. How do I cool off without turning on the cold air, which my family is cold but I am hot. I have my fan on and that is not helping either. I'm getting close to my due date so does that have anything to do with it? I wake up sweating. I want to cool down and fast.

  • I was the same way last month. I turned the heater down to 60 (poor DH about froze lol) and anytime I could while I was home I just wore a thin tshirt and I slept naked. Fans are wonderful. Even putting a wet cloth on your head could help. When I got reall really really hot I would just hop in a cold shower. It's almost over hang in there!

  • How about a cool bath or shower? Put cold packs on your neck and wrists and behind your knees. That should help. If you don't have ice packs use cold rags.

  • You might try a cooling blanket - I love it. They draw heat away from your body using special materials and tap water (you won't feel the wetness at all) and keep you cool all night. Silver Eagle Outfitters sells the Cool Quilt for $50-115 for adult size blankets. Check it out - it is well worth the investment and you will really appreciate it again when menopause hits (my age).

  • i used the wet wash cloth on the back of my neck, seems like if my neck is cool the rest of me follows. hormons are just going crazy but call and get doctor advice if that makes you feel better!!!!!!!!!!!!! you're not alone
