Hi sorry about this now, im not sure whether to post it or not. Lately i noticed a smell coming from down there
) they tested for infection and leaking of fluid of all which came back clear. They also suggested giving the area a bit of a trim!
I think mammy bean has similar post. I have the same as you I got it checked out and it was fine. Your right about pads I was told by hospital not the wear them as they make you sweat, they just told me to keep area clean (how many showers can you have
It could be that we sweat more, this happens to me sometimes too.
If you had thrush, you'd know about it anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much.
I think this is just one of those pregnancy things. I remember having this too and asking DH every day if he could smell me (paranoid that others could smell it too)
I keep saying that its just cos I can smell like a blood hound
Its terrible though isn't its, I'm totally paranoid about it!!
Thank you for posting about this NLTG as I just didn't know how to put it!! I've had this now since about 28/30 weeks, I had a swab done about two weeks ago and haven't had any results yet. I'm paranoid to even wear the same trousers two days in a row!! I'm waxed as well so there's no hair to cause any smell
i have my work trousers and i wash them after every wear. I need new ones cos the 2 i have are nearly threadbare from all the washing and i only have them about 6 weeks.
I find putting some talc down there helps a bit especially with the sweating.
Thanks again girls you are great.
Thanks girls, i didnt know whether to post about it or not.
newyearbabs, i actually went mad with the Veet and trimmer on Wed as DH had also said it might help it.
Lady Di, i know what you mean about the trousers
I've been having this too- very common during pregnancy-
I can't stand wearing liners either- make my bits very stuffy
Just keep stuff clean
I think our keen sense of smell doesn't help either,
Ok this is weird but I smelled of Danish butterbiscuits down there the whole time I was pregnant! It was quite strong and my pee smelled the same!!! I was sure the little fella would smell the same when he arrived but he didn't so I don't know what it was at all. Once it doesn't smell bad I wouldn't be worried but I would definitely tell the doctor at your next appointment.

Sphynx i wonder if you on to something here. I was using my Palmers Cocoa butter the other day (i use it once or twice a day all over) and i think that might be what the smell is???
I wonder if im using so much of it, it is seeping down there and causing the smell.
