Since I had my son, I am always hot. At night I keep the thermostat very low, my bedroom window open and I sleep with little to no covers and I sweat. I had a lot of pitting edema the last 3 months of my pregnancy and for about 2-3 weeks after I had the baby. Is this hormones and the excess of fluid continuing to come out? Could there be an underlying issue? I feel great, other than being a bit tired from getting up with a baby during the night.
