It...smells.

OK, ladies, time to air your dirty laundry. What is your most embarrassing pregnancy symptom?

Mine is horrific gas. It's not loud or anything. But boy, does it smell bad. It won't stop. It won't go away. AHHH!!! My kids keep saying "it smells in here!" and it's totally me.

My gas, DH likes too point it out every time. I am all "everybody farts, leave me alone."

Also when I am having breathing issues DH points that out too.

I have zero bladder control...especially since I got a bad a cold a few weeks ago and have this cough that will not go away! I am always wearing a monster pad now and I feel like I smell like pee. I hope no one else smells it; may be my own dirty little secret and may not be :eek:

I'm opposite. I have extremely loud and violent gas that doesn't usually smell. Thankfully I've managed to keep it all at home!

I have an addiction to gas station slushies this time around. Well, on Sunday the gas station I stopped at only had some blue flavor. I ended up walking around church with a very blue mouth all day. That thing stained my teeth, even. I got teased a lot.

This pregnancy has been different for me than my other two. I guess this time around so far my yuckiest problem is bladder control. And that hasn't been an awful problem. But with the sneezing and coughing I have been doing lately it has been a little problem. When I am at home I will just go changed undies, I try to wear a panty liner when I am out. It's not a lot that seeps out just enough to make me feel uncomfortable.
I always have gas pregnant, or not, so I guess that doesn't count. My CM has been surprisingly normal, sometimes I get a small little bit. My previous 2, I had all kinds of CM, so I really have been surprised this time around about the small amount. Also with DD I had nasty varicose veins on my lady parts!

Constipation, gas and an 'odor' down there. Its embarrassing and my husband keeps asking me if I showered and I am about to throw something at him.

The doctor didn't see any yeast, but gave me medicine for the odor.

I'm thinking that is my issue too. I've been wearing a panty liner, but maybe I need to upgrade to a pad. She kicks my bladder and I pee.

With my last couple pregnancies I have definitely noticed an increase in under arm wetness. Thankfully it's not summer this time. I seriously would have massive wet circles under all my shirts last time, and even feel dripping. This time it hasn't been as bad... because I have bulkier clothing and it's not as hot out. It doesn't really smell bad thanks to applying a good deodorant twice daily, but yikes...

Oh you could feel it! One side was like twice the size of the other and it was so sore! I couldn't see it, but DH said it looked like it was bruised all the time and really gross looking!

For me it's the smell and burping. I smell of cm and blood, even tho i bathe daily. It bugs me more than anyone, and the burping everyone has noticed lol. O well, o and I do have bladder issues too, but I wear monster pads always anyway.
