    Default Worse BO

    Ok so I dont know if it is just me, but has anyone else felt that they have worse body odour during the 3rd trimester? I feel like I am constantly Stinky, even if I put on deodorant a couple of times a day- I hate the thought that someone else things I smell bad, but I have 2 showers a day and I wear deodrant and body spray I just dont know what else I could do?

    Is anyone else experiencing this or am I just a weirdo?

    Hmmm...have you tried using Dri Clor? It's a roll-on that you get from a chemist - it's around $17 or so, but you only need to use it once a month if that. It controls wetness if that's a problem too. You pop it on at night...but not too much as it can irritate you. Just make sure you haven't shaved or washed your armpits vigourously or else you'll be squealing. When I feel like I'm starting to get sweaty again, I put it on before going to bed, make sure it dries (even if I haven't had a shower before bed) and then go to sleep...get up, wash it off and use your usual anti-perspirant. I swear by it. Maybe it could help.

    haven't smelt you at all Ali!!!

    Maybe it's just because your sense of smell is so much more sensitive when you are preggy and non-preganant people don't think you smell at all!

    I have definately noticed I am a lot sweatier, ewwwww. And not just my armpits either but all over and if I have been doing anything remotely hard I have streams running off my brow. Yuck. I have noticed the extra smelliness of "down there" but not sure if it is just my extra sensitive preggo nose. I hope I'm not walking around town with people noticing that!!!!!

    I had to laugh when I saw the topic for this thread.

    I too notice I am sweatier - and not just in the third tri - during the entire pregnancy - and the strange thing is - I am MUCH sweatier under my right arm than my left. It was the same last time too. Very odd.

    Well I have just bought some Driclor, so have to see how it goes. Even without being pregnant I find I have to change my antiperspirant as it just stops working, so hoping this is a long term solution for me.

    Oh yeah.... its just awful!! I sweat a lot normally - not even when exerted... its quite ridiculous... and pregnancy is worse!
    Today the humidity was so bad I had to bring a facewasher in my bag to mop up my face and neck whilst waiting at the bus stop... and not just once - try about 10 times in the space of 5 mins!

    I don't think I smell worse *yet*, however I do know that when pg with Aidyn I noticed a distinct change in BO, especially 'down there'... which I was really self conscious about!
