I've been waking up multiple times every night for the past few weeks literally drenched with sweat. I never sweat like this, so I know it's pregnancy-related. Is anyone else experiencing this? Will it go away after a while, or can I look forward to nine months of soaked sheets and sodden pajamas?<br><br>
It's driving me crazy-- not only does all the sweating cause me to wake up continually throughout the night, but I've been having to change my sheets every couple of days (otherwise they start to smell, yuck) and I can only wear my pajamas once before they need to go in the wash.<br><br>
I'm sure it's just hormone-related, but it's still not fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

I did the other night, bed was completely soaked like it is when I have a fever, but no fever. I am either burning hot, and every night I am freezing cold and can't get warm. Last night I was sweating around dinner time and DH says, "Well enjoy it, in a few hours you'll be freezing", and I was!!<br><br>
It's crazy. I'm also extremely thristy too!!

Yup! I wake up sweating or really hot. I tend to be really hot nowadays. Apparently this is normal and will change over time but I keep thinking about the fact that I'll be pregnant the ENTIRE summer. Georgia summers are no joke but this little bugger is worth it all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Oh, is that what's causing that? I've woke up a couple of times SOAKED. I didn't even think about the fact that it might be pregnancy related.

LOL! Glad to have been of service! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I googled around a bit and discovered that we're not the only ones-- apparently a lot of pregnant (and menopausal) women have this problem. The only thing that confuses me is the fact that some sources attribute it to the increased progesterone levels during pregnancy (which seems reasonable to me... I mean, progesterone is what raises our BBT during the luteal phase, right?), while other sources attribute it to <i>low</i> progesterone levels.<br><br>
Guess I'll have to look into it more-- I'll be sure to update this thread if I find anything. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
