not much of a question more of a complaint really :(

God having really bad hotflashes right now n they aren't so fun :( I'm 35w5d and my due date is right around the corner but I'm fed up being pregnant :( its 4 am n woke up sweating close to an hour ago its only 50° in my room and now I can't get comfy to fall back asleep... I only slept for a few hours but feel like I slept for like eight. The last month of pregnancy is NOT fun and I'm over it :( I just want my little girl to get out already!! Lol :)

Hello & SO sorry for your discomfort. I suffered terribly from hotflashes-to the point of it ruining my life! I tried hormone replacement therapy & everything from black cohosh...to anything else you can imagine. I finally found a total help in the oddest place LOL. A friend sent me to a psychic, because she felt so bad for the decline in my life! Anyway, this psychic recommended taking turmeric powder- 1/5 of a teaspoon 3 times a week. I thought, what the heck? So, every Sunday, Tuesday & Friday I faithfully took my dose {doesn't have to be exactly 1/5-as it does not have any side effects} & OMG!!!!!!! My hotflashes went down by about 80% & were much more manageable. It takes a few weeks to get into your system, so don't think it's not working until you've at least given it 2 months or so. I'd love to hear your story after trying this...it has given me back my life. BUT, I got cocky after about a yr & stopped taking this & WHOP! I got hotflashes back like a punch in the gut! Good luck & even though it seems like it's too easy an answer, what have you got to lose? Turmeric also helps in many other problems. Please give feedback so others have luck as well.
