Embarassing Odor Question

Hi, I was wondering, when I pee, there is a strong odor "down there" that I have noticed since I got pregnant. Its not a bladder infection smell. Its sweet smelling. Is this related to the pregnancy?

Most likely- I've heard a lot about the urine smelling different when pregnant- it also is usually a different, darker color.

I too, have noticed a different smell, but Honey, it ain't 'sweet'. Pregnancy hormones cause everything to change, including our own 'odor'. I have never been a fan of my own smell, thus ensuring I am completely hetero-s_xual, but this particular first trimester with morning sickness, and an aversion to any possible odor, whether it be my dog, my cooking, my husband, my house, etc etc etc, my 'odor' ranks at the top of the avoidance list. If your odor is sweet, count your blessings!!! yes, it's completely normal. Wait until the extra discharge comes!!!!

Oh my Gosh!!!!! I have felt the same way, not to be gross or anything, but when I went to the restroom, while on the toilet I had an odor that smelled sweet sort of, I can't really explain it, but it was definately there. Lovely is right though, wait till all that extra discharge starts to flow, mine has already started. I bought some pantyliners, because it makes no sense to walk around with damp panties, and the way its flowing down there, I would be changing my panties every hour.

When does this extra discharge you guys are talking about usually start?

About that 'sweet' smell, I noticed it too and I'm wondering if it's the new vitamins I'm taking.

I haven't had the odor problem until these last two pregnancies, #6 and #7. Does anyone know if drinking lots of water helps? I am terrible with my water intake. I just get so busy with the other kids. Any help would be appreciated. I just did this search because I felt like I could smell myself all day. Ugh!!!!!!!

i gonna be a new dad. Do women acctuall have really bad mood swings?

 

to robert - April 26

pregnancy is a very tricky time for women, when i was pregnant, my boyfriend said being around me was like walking on eggshells, so i suggest, if your partner is pregnant be a little more attent_tive to her moods and try to work along with them. if that doesnt work , dont see her until shes in labor (lol)

I think its the vitamins. Mine changes after I take the vitamins and throughout the day as the vitamins exit my system. As for the discharge...BUY COTTON PANTIES, BUY LINERS, BUY POWDER...not only will being wet cause chafing and heat rashes, but will also promote yeast infections which you cannot take Diflucan for. I've also heard of women have skin tags and discoloration on their thighs from this. Keep cool and dry ladies and relax, the smell is the pre-nates!

Hi Rachel I think the best thing to do it drink plenty of water that usually help with any odour as well as infections during pregnancy.

do we get different smells when we get pregnant? i have a different smell....not sweet and for sure not oniony:), but it is something different. honestly, it kinda smells like my husband's c_m (sorry...kinda gross, but how it is....)

Like I have said before mine smells like farts!!!!!

are you sure you aren't leaking amniotic fluid? If there is a sweet smell it could be a. fluid, if it is an ammonia smell like cleaners then it is urine. Defintely smells different than non-pregnant urine, though, I have to agree with you there! Mine has a definite ammonia scent.
