This is a discussion on Body feel very warm after delivery? within the Confinement Period forum, part of the You and Your Family category; Hi mummies, I have just delivered my baby few days ago. Have been feeling extradinarily warm since the second day ...
I have just delivered my baby few days ago. Have been feeling extradinarily warm since the second day I gave birth. Even i stay in air-cond room also can't beat the heat. Any body has the same experience?
Is it because I'm doing total breast feed?
BF will make body feel less warm? I perspire a lot esp during between 3 to 5am even though i set the air-cond temp to low...
cos what i know was when baby latch on to suck will suck your body heat also
Hmm... wondering if it is the side effect of epidural?
Few months back when i give birth, im like that too when im in my confinement...i feel extremely hot..partly is that i can't bath and can only drink hot red dates and brown rice drinks daily.
I bathe everyday but still I feel very very hot... the strangest thing is I perspire like crazy at a certain period of time while sleeping and i sleep in air-cond room... sigh...
Mayb i think that the hormones in body change after delivery..
After i give birth now i feel cold very easily.Tht few weeks after delivery i wld be shivering to death at nite!!My gynae said tht was normal,to get nite chills for a few weeks.Now go anywhere also must carry jacket esp malls n air con places.Tht time pregnant wah so good no need wear jacket even when going to watch movie just wearing thin spaghetti dress somemore..hahah

mine lasted throughout the whole confinement. was back to normal after confinement. i perspire so much that i always have to standby tissue. yes. i did breastfeed my baby during confinement.... hmmm... temperature shot up to 38.9 degree c?! you having fever dear!! do you have breast engorgement when you got fever? breast engorgement can cause fever for some people.
dont't worry. perspiration will slowly be lesser as you are closer to the end of your confinement.
my hubby did complained about my body heat though during confinement.. he say he cant hug me to sleep at all becos i'm like burning. so hot. i'm only allowed to shower once a day. rest of the day i use wet towel(the type that hospital provide for drycleaning for those patients who cant shower, bought mine at ntuc)to wipe myself. feels siok after the wipe. the wipes effectively clean off the oil on my face too. i hide myself in the aircon room everyday to keep cool.
Thanks all mummies for your replies.
Yesterday first time after giving birth i had a good nite sleep. Didn't sweat that much. God bless hopefully can continue with this good trend... pheeeew!!
