I didn't have it this bad with my son but this time around I definitely have an odor, especially when going to the bathroom (even just peeing!).

I work in a place where everyone shares the same bathroom and I am VERY concerned that I may be green clouding the place.

Anyone else struggling with this? It's soooo embarrassing! I would love to know what to do to make it stop! I'm going to try to do a full clean before going to work and maybe pack a few wipes to freshen up each time but I'd like a more permanent solution (other than give birth, lol).

Are you referring to vaginal odor? If so then I feel your pain . I think between the hormones and the excess discharge my situation just gets funky way too easily when I'm pregnant. I hate it! I'm wearing pantyliners, using freshening wipes & washing with odor block intimate wash. I don't really know what else to do except look forward to not being pregnant and having everything down there go back to normal .

Yeah, that's the smell I mean. I've decided to upgrade to a maxi because they have better odor control. Plus frequent washings through the day. Is there some odor killing thing I can put on the skin around the vagina?

Mine looked and smelled strange with DD (swollen etc). But this time around it hasn't happened. With DD i'd carry some of the special wipes you can buy and use them a couple times a day at work. Overall though I think I obsessed about it so much that I was sure other people could smell it when in reality no one could

I've definitely noticed a different smell too. I am self-conscious about it, but DH hasn't really mentioned it. Maybe it's not as bad as I think it is?

DH hasn't mentioned anything to me and can't keep his hands off me so I'm guessing I must not smell that bad.. Lol I really think we're the only ones that smell it because our sense of smell is like a super power now lol

It drives me crazy also. I keep a pack of freshening wipes in there and wear pantyliners. DH hasn't said anything to me about it either, so I agree with the other ladies that we probably notice it more because of our noses.

oh my gosh , i do agree.... and the whole swollen thing is so annoying. it looks so puffy.... i agree with the others though, my DH is still all over me so he must not care too much. I am too self conscious to even ask him about it because IF HE WERE to say that it even slightly is bad/different it would hurt my feelings. lol.
