I'm so hot and sweaty all the time, why?

I got extremely hot and sweaty very easily. For example, last night I was giving my 15 month old a simple bath and by the end of it I was dripping in sweat. I feel feverish but don't have a fever. This is so irritating and puts me in a horrible mood. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? It's been going on for about 9 weeks now (since my youngest was born).

It'll get better as your hormones even out.

Your body is trying to get rid of your retained water from your pregnancy. 

For a week straight I woke up in the middle of the night, literally in a pool of sweat. I had to sleep on towels, I would soak them through and have to change them out mid way through the night. I was disgusting. 

Once your body regulates, you should go back to normal.

I forgot about that happening. It happened to me too but I forgot!

After I had my son I would either be freezing or burning. It's hormones.

Most likely the post partum hormone shift.  The sweatiness is the very common diaphoresis that happens (you may be urinating more and lose hair).  Your blood volume increases to support your pregnancy, so when you give birth and shed your placenta, your hormones shift to get back to normal.  It can take awhile to get back there, and if you're breastfeeding, more may happen when you wean.

Phew! I never thought about it still being hormones. I can't wait until they go back to normal! Thanks ladies!
