This is gross, but I am hoping I am not the only one! I know discharge during pregnancy is normal, however is it suppose to smell weird? I have white or clear discharge every day and it doesn't smell bad, just weird. I don't stick my nose down there or anything, but can smell it when I pee or something. Anyone else had this or am I just the weird one??

I have discharge too, but.......sweetie threes no smell. There is a possibility that there is an infection and you should see a Doctor just to be sure. Otherwise every woman is different you may just have a "smell". But to be on the safe side, any time you have a smell down there during pregnancy you should see a Doctor just to be sure. Any infection in or around the v____al area can jeopardize a pregnancy.

That is what I don't get, my doctor did anothe pap and tests and said there was no sign of an infection. He just kind of dismissed it. Like I said it's not bad, just weird. who knows

just because there is a "smell" down there doesn't mean u have an infection. Some women have a natural odor......Doesn't stink just strong kinda female smell.

That last part was not men tfor you christnia sweetie, some people are quick to chew some one out.

I didn't take it that way! :) You are right though people love jumping down people throats on here!! I just hope it's not an infection and he is missing it or something because I was told the same thing and I have read that if there is a smell then there is possible infection. I have an appt next weds. I guess I will try and ask him again. I don't want anything to hurt the baby!!

I think you are fine. I was reading another pregnancy forum when I was ttc and one of the ladies said that she knew she was pregnant by hte way of the smell. She had been pregnant before & knew what pregnant smelled like. I too have a scent to mine. Some women are just more musky than others that's all.

Ok good, I don't want everyone on here thinking I stink!! :)

No sweetie, its ok, pregnancy changes our body, its ok if you have a diffrent aroma, every women has some smell to her.

pregnancy discharge does have a distinct smell. It should not be a foul smell though, but it is different. The way you describe it sounds very normal.

The hormones can cause an odor. If your doctor was not alarmed, I would not worry. Even your urine might smell more than usual. Mine did while I was pregnant. Prenatal vitamins may also contribute to the stronger scent.

does amniotic fluid have an odor?

Mine did not emit an odor, although I did not attempt to smell it closely. I have heard that it sometimes has a sweet smell. At least I think I remember hearing that.

I am 5 weeks pregnant and I too have a "sweet" smell down there. My DH has also noticed that I taste "sweeter" (hope that wasn't TMI). I never even considered for a second that it would be something other than my new pregnant smell, which too be honest, is quite comforting. It's one more symptom that reminds me how wonderful it is too finally be pregnant...
