Change in body chemistry? (aka why doesn't my deodorant work anymore?)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
That about sums it up.

I hit 22 weeks and all of a sudden I have pit stains all the time. I'm not especially hot or stressed. I haven't changed antiperspirant/deodorant (but I'm thinking about it now...).

I'm carrying a boy so maybe my body chemistry is off? Is there some big hormonal thing the baby does around now? FWIW, #2 is a boy but I was at this stage with him in hot weather so if it happened then, I don't remember being surprised by it.

What gives? What antiperspirant/deodorant is working for you?

I had the same thing when I DD was younger and nursing around the clock. Fun times for the summer, LOL! I think it's the horomone changes.

My sister had to change deodorants after her 3rd (a girl) and still hasn't found one that works. Those silly hormones! I make my own funk butter; lucky for me it's still working because nothing else has ever worked for me before (short of nasty prescriptions)!

My deodorant still works, luckily. I have noticed though, that the only time I really NEED deodorant is when I am preggo. I can go without when I am not pregnant. So I guess my chemistry really changes too.

don't want to brag here... but I have noticed a decrease in sweating and body odor-- woo hoo!

I'm definitely sweatier! I figured it was just because I'm hotter/ it takes more energy to move around than before/ I'm up more than 20 pounds already. But maybe it is hormonal, I don't know!

I have also been really sweaty. Even if I'm not hot. Anytime I'm wearing sleeves, I have sweaty arm pits, and it's gross, and it's uncomfortable...the sweat makes my skin break out under my arms in little red bumps sometimes. The thought of sleeves sends a shiver down my spine...but since it's freezing out, I force myself to wear them. I just also wear a tank top underneath so that if it's too unbearable I can strip.
