  • I don't recall the BO while I was pregnant, but I remember sweating like a pig constantly. I didn't know where it came from all of the sudden. I was always overheated and I am generally a cold person. So, with all your hormones changing I am sure pregnancy can trigger it. You might also want to change your deoderant. Your body gets used to certain chemicals and smells that are put on it. It doesn't have to be a special deoderant, just change brands. I know it worked for me with the sweating.

  • It's Crazy Hormones You may have to switch around to find one that works on you when you are pregnant, I have had to do this for Deo( Kiss My Face Brand and also The Crystal Rock both have worked) and also find a Toothpaste that doesn't make me nauseous.
