  • Yeah, a pantiliner will help esp in warmer weather or even a reg pad if you are sweating lots and lots. You can change those out easier than changing underwear and still feel fresh. Baby powder helps some. Isn't pregnancy fun?

  • Ya know sometimes there isnt much you can do except maintain and have things handy. Keep extra undies in your purse if your going out for a bit, and a plastic baggy for a quick switch. Wipes and spray for down there that you can find in your feminine product isle. Thats about it. If its really bad and your concerned talk to your doctor, but we get bigger as we get more prego and friction and heat and all that just adds up. Waxing might help with the hair, i know sometimes I dont always keep up down there because Im just too tired or sick etc. So, pampering yourself can help.
    Good luck!

  • the thought of buying something over the counter can be risky. it might get in your pores and harm you and the baby. we purchase all kinds of things and don't really know all the chemicals they have added to them. what type undies do you wear cotton or silk? its your hormones

  • LOL yes!
    Sweat and discharge constantly It seems!
    I can't see down there anymore (at 21 weeks) but I am getting liners to help keep things good down there...with the summer looming in it's not getting any easier! LOL
