It's so normal!your body is over working it self.i felt same way with my 1st child.few months after his birth!i got my body back and everytin went back to normal.now 12wks preggy with my 2nd.so try clean urself with water ,then dry it.alwz use a pant liner.you can get some wipes too.but never use soap or chemicals.

Do you think it could be my summers eve soap too? What should I use to clean it then if it's not my soap? :/ I don't feel clean when I just use water.

From someone who suffers with a few ITI's and yeast infection while pregant smell isn't normal. If you're starting to get an infection or even have a mild one it can cause you to smell after you pee. You should call your dr/midwife and have them do a quick test.

Also you might wan to check with you dr about using Summer's Eve, mine told me not to use it and only use mild body soaps and definatly (not that you are) no douching as that can harm the baby.
If you want to try most bath wipes or baby wipes after you go to the bathroom those can help you stay "fresh" feeling and help avoid infections

Yea I got tested for uti or any infection and I came out clean that's why idk what's going on. I shower often so I know it's not that. But yea I'll definitely ask her about it when I go see her again cause I don't like this.

I have the same thing!! Thought I was alone!! Its not a urin smell. Nor fishy.  Just in case my ob checked for stds,  infections,  and uti.  Everything came out negative..  and I still have this "weird smell" I do pee on my self. So I have been wearing panty liners.  I shower, keep it clean. not sure what's up but my ob said it will go back to "Normal" smell after birth. This is my third pregnancy,  so it caught me off guard when it started when I was about 20 weeks pregnant.  I never had it with my first two pregnancys so your not alone!!

Yesss, I got tested for it all too and it all came back good. I do hope it goes back to normal after the baby!
