Discharge and vaginal odor during pregnancy

Ok this is an intimate one but we seem pretty open on this page....but did anyone notice a change in vaginal odor and discharge during their pregnancy?? All the books and websites Ive been on not ONE mentioned this.  And its just odd smelling (of course I have HYPERSENSITIVE nose these days too).  But I just recently noticed it. And the discharge is very slight no spotting or anything to be alarmed about.  But just wanted to hear what some of u much further along experienced.

I say definitely have it checked if it has an ammonia smell or fishy or the discharge is white...or yellowish. I've researched info on Bacteria Vagnoisis and it is common among women and can happen during pregnancy. It is an overgrowth of "bac" that is already in vag area, but does and can be treated. Thing is, it can come back. Do search on ask.com. I wish I could remember the site I found where the women who were preg were extremly open with their info. You can use a cream insert or oral meds...ck with doc. Hope this helps.

When I was pregnant my dr. told me that bacterial infections, bladder infections increase in pregnant women.  Like Savanha said, easy to treat, but you probably should have it checked.  Always better to be safe.

I have so much more discharge this pregnancy...my doctor even noticed during my first visit. She said it is TOTALLY normal.  Increased blood flow or something.  She said do not sleep with a panty liner and change your panties frequently to avoid any bacteria build up or infection.  I also notice a smell - normal smell that I would probably never notice if I wasn't preggy, but I am hypersensitive about it.  Hope that helps!

The nurse told me this week to expect an increase in discharge if I am not used to it....BUT if it has any odd smell, to call them immediately.

I believe they mention it on webmd... said its very common.. our nose is really sensative and others wont smell it like we do. I havent experienced much discharge.. but sometimes my BM will knock your socks off!! reminded me of when dd had her bad bm diapers!! yikes. lol guess I had better get back into the swing of things.. eh?
