Foul vagina smell

hi, this is kind of embarrassing for me but i am currently 35 weeks pregnant and for the past few weeks i have had this foul onion-like smell coming from my vagina.   no matter how thoroughly i clean it doesnt go away. i asked my ob about it and she did some tests, but didnt say anythign about them. i didnt know whether or not the tests take a while or if that just meant they were normal. but it seems it is getting more and more evident and i'm embarrassed to be near my boyfriend naked. please help!

I don't know for sure what this is.  I guess they would have told you if you had a UTI or something.  I'd keep a eye on it and try not to worry to much about it.  I guess you could try to drink more fluids and see if that might help.  How long has this been going on??  If its been over a week I might call them back on it.  Maybe try one of those feminine deoderant sprays, I think they also have some special wipes you can toss in your purse as well.  Freshen up a bit so you don't feel embaressed.  I'm sorry your having this problem its frustrating.  I hope all goes well and let us know when your new baby get here!  Take care

This happens to me as well. Most of my pregnancy I am 'a bit stinky down there'...It's gross!!!!
I had this with my last pregnancy as well.
My doc says that it's normal for this to happen....

I just try to keep clean and use baby wipes at times to freshen up.

(i'm 31 wks)

You're almost there! Home stretch....................
