Ok! Where do I start? This pregnancy discharge is NO FUN! I hate the way it makes me worry that I'm bleeding and I hate the way it smells!! I've been holding this in ladies, I have to let it OUT! My nose is so extra sensitive right now, (I walked past a homeless man last week and got a whif of him and threw up!) that it's making me paranoid of the way I smell down there. It's not a horrible smell, but it doesn't smell like peaches either. It's just different. My dh swears he doesn't notice and it doesn't *TMI* taste any different but I know he is lying because I've tatsed it before with my last pregnancy before I knew I was pregnant, by ACCIDENT, looong story. Anyone wanna know what it tastes like? Just kidding. Anyway, I remember it getting worse in the second trimester. Pantyliners really help with the mess but not with the smell. I think I need some scented undies or something :( Like I said before it doesn't stink, it's just not a normal lovely smell and it bothers my stomach, yuck. Well I know there is no cure so I guess I'm just venting. Anyone else feeling this way?

I HAVE HAD SIMILAR TIMES AND IHAVE MY OTHER HALF THE SAME THING HE LETS ME KNOW IF I SMELL. IT DOES PASS BUT EVERY TIME I SMELL IT I JUST HAVE A SHOWER RUB AND SOAP THE HECK OUT OF IT .AND PUT SOME POWDER IN PLACE OF IT .AND WHEN YOU GO TO THE TOILET JUST WIPE YOURSELF UNTIL YOUR TOTALLY DRY .I KNOW WHAT YOUR GOING THROUGH ITS SO EMBARASSING TO ME ANY WAY.P.S EVEN SHAVE EXCESS HAIR AROUND IT IF YOU DONT ALREADY.CHEERS /GOOD LUCK

Thanks Amber. Yah I already shave, I'm sure I will stop when I can't see down there anymore, lol. I soap the c___p out of it lol, I feel like I need to clean the inside but OF COURSE I wouldn't during pregnancy, shoot I was afraid to douch even before I got pregnant. I will for sure try the other things you suggested.

Heheeh, that's why I named it very personal. I hope I didn't offened anyone. Hey, it's a pregnancy symptom, it should be OK to talk about. Now if someone has this problema nd they AREN'T pregnant than thats another issue and they would probably need an STD test.

 

AMBER81 - November 29

im not offended its good that you can talk about things how do you know if you dont ask .its the only . i got it threw my pregnancys and after / i guess its just the water the baby lives in while your pregnant because when your waters break it does stink .so dont worry about it . all good for you girl 'like isaid u dont know if you dont ask right 'thats what were here for to give as much info that we know .see ya mate

I feel wet all the time too, I worry and think "oh God, please no"...... It's a terrible feeling! As far as the smell, I've been so congested pretty much throughout my entire pregnancy so I can't comment on that, however I'm sure it ant pretty...... :)..... ShoppingForTwo, I just love you!!! I'm so glad we all feel comfortable talking about ANYTHING!! You go girl!!!!

i have it too Shopping. i hate it. i tried to talk to my dh about it. i mentioned having "some weird discharge" and he said "discharge? like from your nose?" i then knew he knows nothing about the female body! haha! anyway, i use baby powder to mask the odor (which is odd smelling, not horrible) and to absorb the moisture. My Dr. said it is normal. it is definitely annoying!

i'm only 7 weeks and have just started to get discharge. so far, it doesn't smell. sounds like i'm in for a treat, though!

 

ma1008 - November 30

glad im not the only one, lol. i so clean the inside, but not by douching, i just take out all the excess discharge when i shower, sorry if TMI. then its not so bad.

 

ShoppingForTwo - November 30

WOW! I'm really NOT alone!! Thanks so so much for your replies ladies. Ma1008, you must have some long fingers lol. I'm deathly afriad of infection or I would try some things too. Nola-gal, YES, you are in for a wonderful treat! :) Hioannidis, your congested?! LUCKY you! Want to hear a strory with *TMI*? Ok well yesterday I *forgot* to wear undies. I get up super early in the morning for work and I don't get good sleeps during the week, only on weekends, and I always hit the snooze, so I have to hurry and get dress so I can eat before I leave or I will feel like c___p. Anywho, I did't wear undies under my slacks and I have a little heater under my desk thats at my feet and it b__ws UP. Well I almost threw up because of the smell. I had to turn the heater off! So embara__sing! Just my luck I discharged so much yesterday, I wanted to throw those pants away! Lesson to all pregnant women, WEAR PANTIES!

Your dh is funny buckeye74! I explained to mine what discharge was during my last pregnancy so he thinks he knows EVERYTHING now lol. Thanks so much Amber, you are so right, how will we know if we never ask?!

 

stefkay - November 30

You are SO not alone!!! I read your post and was like "yeah!"...lol, i think it is all pretty normal. I know that smell, I'm like is that ME??? It's not bad so much as weird....I'm also doing progesterone suppositories so I have to stick my finger up in my hoo-ha 3 times a day and talk about discharge.....ick.....it's worse when it comes out on your finger. TONS of it....

 

hioannidis - November 30

I'm doing progesterone suppositories as well, and yes, that's no fun. My finger gets covered!! Thank goodness I'm congested! Shopping, you are HILARIOUS!! From now on your name is BRITNEY SPEARS due to the lack of panties!!!!!..........LMAO!!!

 

newlywed0915 - November 30

yeah- how bout mixing that smell with the smell of you rhusbands s____n? Now THAT is gross. I've already gagged severeal times because of it after s_x.

 

ShoppingForTwo - November 30

Hahaha! I've thrown so many pairs of panties away this pregnancy. Sometimes I don't have discharge for a day or two so I think it has stopped so I won't wear a panty liner and then ick, its back in full force! So most of the time I just throw the undies away if they get messy. I definetly need to go to Victoria's Secret and stock up! And I need to get in the habit of wearing a panty liner EVERYDAY and keeping extras in my purse. Britney Spears, lmao! I don't wear dresses and show my vajayjay to people!

 

Faye84 - November 30

OhHhHh Shopping for two is a freak-a-leak. hehe JK! I know what you mean though. You know what MIGHT help? scented panty liners. Change them every hour, that way your underwear wont be soaked ... and you will stay fresh! I used to do that but it ended up being to much work...so now I just sit in my SLIM! HAHAHAHAHA kidding :-) ...kinda.
