I might be going crazy (kinda gross)

Ok, I asked the members of August 08 first to make sure I"m not completely crazy. Does anyone else think they smell??? I honestly don't remember this with the other two but with this baby, by the end of the day I can smell myself. I shower every morning, I wear clean clothes, I practice good hygiene but I stink. I don't know if others can smell me too or if I can only smell myself but it's driving me crazy!

Lol sometimes I think I smell. DH teases me about it. I found though that when I changed my deodorant that I can still smell that at the end of the day and it made me feel better.

I bought Suave Tropical Island (or something like that name) and I think it smells pretty good lol.

I've been having this issue for months now! Not all the time, but just sometimes I feel like everyone can smell me! My DH was the one that thought I was crazy though!

Same here. DH says he can't tell a difference, and starts talking about how pheromones are a good thing. LOL I don't care, I can smell something, and it sure isn't flowers!

I remember being like that with my first pregnancy. I felt like I had some body oder that I just couldn't kick. DH told me he could never smell it but it drove me insane and I was sure everyone around me could smell it. I wonder if its a hormone thing?

Maybe it is just another side effect of having super human smelling! I can smell anything anywhere which is not normal for me except when I'm pregnant. Instead of actually smelling different, maybe it is just better sense of smell??

Well, our sense of smell is better, but usually during pregnancy the body does a better job of detox, not to mention, we usually try to be more careful with diet, which helps detoxify and we do that through sweat/glands so it make perfect sense lol you are not crazy

This was me with my first, drove me CRAZY! I have large boobs to start and they only got bigger. i put deoderant EVERY.WHERE. That seemed to be the only thing that helped. I used Mitchum which i actually still use. I dont think it's as bad with this one but i am not pregnant in the summer like i was with my first.

And don't worry, everyone thought i was nuts too.
