And not just under arm odor either. I really hate how *down there* smells as well.


And just now I took off my shoes after being out and around all day, and my feet.... UGH!!


I'm sure that increased sense of smell was important for the survival of our pregnant primitive ancestors, but really....I could totally do without it.

Maybe because I'm so nauseated already, I'm more sensitive to smells? But I can smell things others can't smell when I'm pregnant. And an increased sense of smell is a fairly common symptom, yes.

Oh, okay! I got it now.. I guess I didn't read that right.

I was smelling yogurt yesterday and it smelled like awful spoiled milk and was very nauseating.

I am overly sensitive to ALL smells. And I'm not liking my own down there either. It's different.

Yeah, I'm not sure what hormonal changes do, but I always smell different when pregnant. And I do not like it.

I never noticed myself smelling different, but I sure notice everything else. Like its magnified times 100. Can't stand the smell of many things these days!

Well my PH has changed so much that I got a yeast infection. :/

I hate the way I generally smell too. I feel like I smell like a used gym towel. Blech!

When I'm pregnant I get many symptoms of yeast infections (weird discharge, itching/burning, etc) but no actual yeast. and it's not bacterial vaginosis either. :/ It's just...me.

The smell thing is crazy! I came downstairs this morning for work and before I even got in the kitchen I smelled the awful smell of pickle juice. Apparently some one left the jar on the counter with the lid not fully screwed on. I was gagging like no tomorrow!

ok, i know this thread is a few pages back... but oh my goodness I am soooooo glad i'm not the only one!

I have found that even my hands stink. I don't know why... they've never smelled before.

I like to shower before bed, however in the middle of the day I have to put lotion on my feet and hands.
