I'm 36 and 28wks pregnant. My 2 oldest are 15 & 12yrs old. I cannot relate to the sweating, but this pregnancy has definitely gotten the best of me. It also seemed my 2 other pregnancies were so much simpler. But honestly,each pregnancy is different, and we were younger then and our bodies could take more. I feel way more nauseous and completely exhausted with this pregnancy. The one thing I suffer from the most, is pulling, or stretching, muscles in my abdomen. I hope it all works out for you. There is an Arm & Hammer deodorant you can use under your breasts, belly & inner thighs to try and keep from rashing from the sweating. Other than that, I think your body is just in overdrive. Maybe the Dr can give you other advice to cool off besides a cool shower. Good luck & happy baby!!!
Thanks so much! I didn't know about the deodorant. I will look for that. I have felt some pulling when I take a deep breath or stretch myself. Seems weird since our bodies have stretched before.
I am 34+6 ftm and I am suffering from the most horrendous night sweats my entire pregnancy I soak through the sheets every night my doctor said it is hormonal because im carrying a son and his testosterone is causing a hormonal imbalance that is causing night sweats please ask your doctor for ways to get relief and post an update....thanks!!
Have the doctor test your blood sugar. One of the symptoms is sweating another is frequent urination which could be masked by being newly pregnant. I could tell I was having a problem when I would be the only person in the house sweating, which I learned later was my body trying to dump sugar.
To test this between now and your next appt. Cut carbs and sugar for a few days and see if things improve...all the best!
I was sweating madly too! My midwife said it's a lack of fluid abs I should drink something with electrolytes.... life powerade or Gatorade.... Good luck
