    I have the fan on.. I had cold flannels, resorted to just a pair of knickers! But I am just tooo restless to sleep! I cant get comfy at all and im boiling and I can tell OH is getting annoyed.

    Anything else I can do? Or am I in for a long night!?

    Am I the only one :-(

    Fan, pillow between your legs, eat a huge handful of walnuts or almonds. Heat makes it awful.

    Same, really struggling and moaning like a good un! I also wore wet socks which helped a bit. I also found that evenings where I've soaked my feet in cold water prior to bed I'm a, little cooler so it just help lower your core body temp.
    We still have another week of these temperatures, I can't stand it!!!! Going to last until I finish work, typical!

    I soaked a towel and draped it over me, the bed got kinda soggy but it did help.

    The fans not helping me sleep, it was blowing hot air at me!

    Underwear, no duvet, windows wide open = perfect nights sleep (for me, anyway).

    I keep my bedroom curtains and windows closed in the day, and open the windows at night to keep the room a bit cooler. Xx

    Oh no! Id hate for my fan to blow hot hair on me. Mines a great big fan :). We keep them closed too. We have the sun set outside our window which doesnt help at all. And we also
    put a matress protector down just in case for my waters and that holds in a lot of heat I think! X




    oh gosh. Im surprised anyone can sleep under a duvet in this lol xx

    I'm afraid there's not a lot we can do about it. We open all windows and doors in the house a few hours before going to bed. Some nights I make my hair wet before going to bed which really helps and it takes a long time for my hair to dry. xx

    Blackout curtains closed all day no sun in bedroom, windows open. Tower fan close (remote controlled). Cool shower before bed no covers.
