Who sweats in December?! lol

I know I get extra hormones shot into my butt, but it CAN'T be normal to sweat this much. I feel like such a hog. The wind chill in Michigan today is reaching -20 and beyond and here I am fanning my fat self! Not to be gross, but I'm sweaty for a girl when I'm not pregnant and I just don't know what to do about all this sweating now! I literally have to pad my underarms to keep from getting pit sweat on my shirts! Am I alone? If you're a sweaty girl, what do you do? I've even tried prescription deodorant and that didn't help.

  • Oh my gosh, i'm 35 weeks, pregnant, we've had crazy snow storms, and I'm sleeping withthe fan on high on me. My SO is about to shoot me.

    I also sweat CONSTANTLY. My doctor told me I have over active sweat glands. I found the Dove clinical strength to work A LITTLE better, you put it on before bed.

  • I don't have a sweat problem, per say, normally, but I am extremely hot natured, pregnant or not. But yeah we're having freezing temps and I keep the heat turned really low in the house, I run around in my panties all day, and sometimes sleep with a fan on....

  • im chicago and sometimes think the windy cold weather is actually a welcoming idea! im not consistently sweating but i wake up soaked...its not fun :( if i get hot around the house though i just wear shorts and a sports bra and sprawl out across the bed. who cares that im 32 weeks and feel like a house, im comfortable!

  • I live in upper michigan and use alot of deoderant (wash under my arms 3-4 times a day and reapply deoderant, then powder my self head to toe) I also run around in a tank top and undies, sleep with the window open with no covers but a sheet!!! Gotta love being pregnant. Cant see how I would survive if it was summer out.
