    Question Hot flash

    I have to ask this stupid question because it is driving me NUTS! I am "hot natured" anyway, but since I delivered (6 weeks ago) I thought my hot flashes would get better. But I am wondering since I am breastfeeding if the flashes will continue due to hormones. I am freezing everyone else in the house and in the car. My skin will be cool to the touch but I am burning up and even sweating. Of course having a warm body next to me when I am nursing makes it even worse. So just curious if anyone else had this problem and did it eventually "cool off" for you????

    it just takes a while for your body to get rid of all thoose extra fluids from the pg and birth.
    It does get beter over time.
    It's hard to have a summer baby!
    winter time is beter they are like a build in heating pad.
