    Default Night sweats

    Anyone experience them after birth? I've had them every night from a week or so before birth till now - 2 months later! Its not like im hot at night - its freezing and waking up wet doesnt help. I thought it was water retention at first but im pre pregnancy size since week after birth and didnt have any swelling etc. read that it can be hormonal if you are breastfeeding but starting to get a bit uneasy. Surely not every night? I dont feel any different during the day, no extra sweating or hot flushes, just night sweats arghhh

    It happened to me for the first couple months I think and got progressively better. DD is now three months and it hasnt happened in a while. I thought it may be due to breastfeeding

    Yes I had them, and it turned out to be an infection, my temp was only borderline 37ish so no one picked it up for 9 weeks.
