Sorry this is a bit rank. Am 26 wks pregnant with DC3 and even though I shower every day and would consider myself a clean person sometimes I have started to notice recently I can smell myself (as in smell my lady bits) . I have tried to wear cotton knickers too as they felt a bit wet - but I am sure more sweaty than any waters breaking.
I have taken to changing my knickers at lunch at work but I can still smell myself afterwards, yesterday it smelt a bit like seman.
Gosh sorry I know it's horrid, just wondered if anyone else had experienced this.
I have! Midwife said its common to change but get a swab done if you're worried about infection. I was about your gestation when I noticed a change too. Has the colour/texture changed of the discharge? Does it smell 'wrong' or 'bad' instinctively?
Me! I shower every morning but still smell! Not everyday but some days. I've taken to wearing a liner so I can just change regularly. I find it really embarrassing - I'd be mortified if a anyone noticed. I'm not as far along as you are but I recall this from previous pregnancy.
Same here! I find it amusing that people say how great it is that you don't have a period for all of pregnancy, but I have got through more pads and liners since being pregnant than I could ever have imagined. Been wearing them constantly since week 9 I reckon and am now week 30. Had a check at 24 weeks in case it was waters as I 'graduated' from liners to pads, but seems to just be another joyous symptom of being preggo!
