  • There are all kinds of funky smells during pregnancy. Discharge does smell kind of like a period sometimes, at least I've had it... I'm 21 weeks

  • there are all kind of funky smells that go along with pregnancy now if it smells kind of fishy or really gross then call your dr becuz that could indicate a infection. there are many vaginal infections that pregnant women can get easly. if you have a increase in vaginal dishcharge then call ur dr.

  • During my first and second pregnancies I could smell bad things all the way through! I went to the doctors and it turned out I had nothing wrong with me, it was just pregnancy that caused it.. But he said that I was right to get checked out, so I'd recommend it.

  • Don't worry unless you have a sharp pain in your lower stomache. With heavy bleeding.
