For the last few nights I have had a TERRIBLE time getting to sleep. I always have a problem w/ my feet being hot at night, it's kinds of a funny issue b/c quite often I'll go to bed w/ FREEZING cold feet so I'll put socks on, only to have to remove them 1/2 way through the night b/c my feet are too hot. This issue runs in my family as well. My brother always sleeps w/ his feet out of the covers & I think we both get that from Mom (Hi, Mom!).
So, last night I went to bed, no socks. My feet were sufficiently warm. After an hour of hanging my feet out of the covers, I finally had to get up & douse them w/ a cold washcloth. It didn't have much effect, but it felt pretty good at the time. I did realise that my feet were all swollen as well (one thing about pregnancy I could do w/o). FINALLY I was able to get to sleep.
I told Chad about it this morning & his reply was, "but the room was COLD! I had the window open all night." Yes, the room was cold, I was a little chilly, but my feet? Not so much. I do recall this hot feet problem from when I was pregnant w/ Asher & could quite often be found sitting on the front porch w/ my feet in a 5 gallon bucket of water to cool off my tootsies.
I think I may fill the hot water bottle w/ cold water & try that tonight. It's not like the weather has been that hot... just my feet!
