Really, girls. Since becoming pregnant, my underarm BO is outta control. And you wanna know what's more embarrassing than realizing that smelly person at the gym is actually you? Um, nothing I hate, hate, hate using aluminum-containing-antiperspirant, but out of desperation, I took out my Secret stick and that doesn't even cut it!! Anyone else battling the smells, or am I on my own here? Any solutions?

I never have BO unless I'm pregnant! It's totally gross and yes, embarrasing.

i'm not the only one! i've been smelly all over every since i got pregnant! i use a lemon scented body wash by tone that smells delicious and when i use that i don't smell as horrible. i also use the dove clear tone deoderant. it works very well for me. i think the scent is nice and clean too. doesn't make my head hurt and doesn't smell funky when i sweat.

I use DH's deodorant soap and busted out the clinical strength dove and I'm good to go again.

I'm actually opposite, I think. I haven't noticed BO at all in pregnancy. It must be my one luck, since every other unpleasant thing has happened to me

I use the clinical strength twice a day. Even if Im not stinky I feel all wet and nasty. I always have that issue when pg but I think it is way worse this time since its summer.

Everything STINKS when you're pg, especially the person closest to you....YOU! lol I'm so with you. I don't know what deodorants have what in them but I have used Secret clinical strength for years now and there is NO stink that comes through that stuff. Oh, just checked and it does have aluminum but it does work really great!
