I am allergic to the aluminum compounds in anti-perspirant so I usually use a natural deodorant, though they don't work well for a woman as *heavily scented* as me. Thus, I'm very aware of how I smell.

All during pregnancy I smelled great. I didn't even wear deoderant, I showered every other day, and I smelled wonderful! About 3 hours before I went into labor, I started *stinking*! (I even told my husband I thought my hormones had changed, and lo and behold, I was right!)

Additionally, I've had two ovulatory postpartum periods and during the luteal phase I've smelled OK. They seem to have gone away and I stink like crazy again.

I am just strange? Or is this normal?

It is odd.When I am pregnant I have a very pleasant smell but right before AF comes ick! I can't seem to get the stink off and then I'm back to normal.I guess its a hormone thing.
