Regular Bee going anon for this one. There isn’t much that can make me go anon, but this one I hemmed and hawed with and finally decided to go incongnito for it.
Bees, I smell like I just hiked up a mountain in the same clothes and didn’t shower for 3 days. This has been going on for about a week now. It’s not like if you were standing next to me you would smell my putrid aroma (at least no one has said anything to me). I notice it at the end of my workday at 5 when I go to take my pants off and change into my pajama bottoms.
It is probably worth mentioning a few things:
One, I shower every morning, and I also sleep without panties (but I still wear pajama bottoms to bed). I have done this for a long time because I get hot at night and don’t want to sweat and get an infection.
Two, I am pregnant, and I just saw my doctor not long ago. I didn’t have that smell at that time. My pee was yellow, but she said that is from the folic acid in my prenatals and not a urinary tract infection.
Three, I have a desk job, so it isn’t like I sweat all day. I am pretty stationary and get up to move maybe once or twice an hour.
Four, because I’m prone to yeast infections, I use unscented body wash and cannot use FDS or any other sprays.
Five, regarding yeast infections it doesn’t smell fishy or like a yeast infection. I just smell—dirty and unshowered.
And six, I have very little discharge in my undies from being pregnant, but they do stink like my pants after work.
Usually I can figure these things out on my own, but I am seriously at a loss for this one. Why would this just all of a sudden start and what could be causing it? It bothers me a lot because I pride myself on smelling good, and I am afraid that it will get worse or that maybe it IS noticeable during the day to others, but I don’t notice it.
