I am 7 1/2 months pregnant with my first child.
I have noticed that within the past few weeks, my body odor (especially in the genital area) has greatly increased. If I'm sitting down and I open my legs, I get a whiff of vagina, urine, and sweat... even just a few hours after doing relatively little physical activity. It's making me really self conscious as I assume others can smell it as well.
I wear only cotton undies and haven't changed soaps/detergents. Whenever I use the restroom, I make sure I wipe myself with the paper as well as I can. I have stopped shaving because I'm a bigger lady and can't really reach (or see) my bits any more to do a good job and I can't afford a wax. I shower once a day in the morning (or once every other day). I don't have any abnormal discharge, pain, or discomfort in my genital area.
I've contemplated trying to carry around those feminine wipes, but I've heard mixed things.
Has anyone else experienced this during pregnancy? Any suggestions?
