Im so embarrassed to eve ask this but I tried looking it up all kinds of ways on google and didnt get an answer so here goes. Ok I know we make more CM when we are pregnant. I constantly feel wet. A lot of times at night I sit at my computer with my legs up and ok here is the gross part I feel like I can smell it. It doesnt smell bad per say but it has a distinct odor too. I wear the same PJ pants a few nights in a row sometimes and I feel like maybe it soaks into it more through the underwear so the smell becomes more concentrated? So is this normal or is it because I have a stronger sense of smell when pregnant or what? Sorry such a gross question....

So is it because of more CM or are we just more sensitive to the smell now or both?

I noticed it a lot when I was pregnant with my son...I also noticed that the smell got more strong when I had more sugar in my diet (but I never had a yeast infection). I ended up just wearing liners all the time so that I could get more than one wear out of my pants. I have cloth liners now that I was using with AF, so if I need to (which I haven't so far), I can use those.

You are probably the only one that notices. I have been wearing panty liners so I can change them, but my dh, who can smell everything, says he can't smell anything.

I think it is both. I always feel like I smell more strongly, but I also know I smell everything more.

I think it's both because I have the same problem! I'm also in the boat of thinking my house smells weird and DF thinks I'm crazy. I'm going to have to start wearing panty liners soon because I'm constantly freaking out thinking the wet feeling is blood.

I think its most definatly a combo of both. I feel like a bloodhound lately because I can literally smell EVERYTHING lol. My CM has definatly thickened up since being pregnant and has a sour-ish smell but its not too bad.

Same here! I think it's both, too. I get scared that other people can smell it as well, but it's just like when I would get AF - I would swear that I could smell the blood, but my best friend always assured me that no one could.

Also, can I just say that this is why I love being part of a DDC? It's nice to never be alone with a question or problem!

totally normal! it's one of those things that 'they' don't tell you about pregnancy lol. but wearing a panty liner does help and during both my pregnancies i started leaking urine (very small amounts so when it started the first time i had no idea what was going on lol) but again panty liners became my best friend!

I feel more wet and sometimes check to make sure it's not blood. Also, I smell it more. I can smell all kinds of things now. Like our car heater is so nauseating to me. yuck!

I am so glad you asked this. I have also wondered about this but was to embarrassed to ever ask. I have the same think and I think it is both increased cm and increased smell. Glad to see it is normal!
