Does being up the duff give you B.O.?

Ladies I am not too shabby in the personal hygeine department, and since I have been up duffed I spend an inordinate amount of time in the bath/shower. Last night for example, spent a good hour in the bath, but this morning whiffy pits first thing. Did an hour of pilates and they positively reeked after that. Am I just a bit stinky, or has anyone else gotten a bit whiffier.

Yes, that happened to me too, albeit very briefly! There was about a 2 week period where nothing seemed to work, then just as suddenly I was back to normal. Good luck that it's the same for you smile

Your sense of smell is heightened during pregnancy, so maybe you are just more aware of itsmile

This happ to me in the early days! I abs hummed and couldn't figure out why! I was having a shower every morning but by dinner I smelt rotten! I was spraying constantly! Anyway thankfully this only masted a few weeks then just disappeared!!! Hormones eh!!!

I definitely got more sweaty. Someone recommended an amazing deodorant to me that means you literally will not smell!! I don't know if me mentioning it on here counts as advertising? confused I was skeptical but now I'm a total convert.

I feel sweatier and think I smell more (of garlicky sweat weirdly) but DH has confirmed I 100% don't. Think it's the sticky feeling + the heightened sense of smell.

Yes I am more stinky and never used to be. Shower twice a day sometimes.

There are some parts of pregnancy which remind me of going through puberty, and I feel like this is one of them. I feel like I get yucky faster and I have spots. It makes sense because of the raised hormone levels I guess.

Yeah its not just me! We are all stinky bitches. Completely agree about similarities with puberty. I keep remembering the 'chat' with my mum about how I had to have a shower everyday now, and pay particular attention to my pits and 'down there'. Ahhhh the circle of life.
