feb 18- bo that deserves it's own post.... yes, it's that bad.

typically i don't even bother with deodorant. i know.. it sounds gross.. but i just usually don't need it in my day to day life. well, the last week or so things sure have changed!
i have concerns with aluminum... and clogging my underarms in a way that my body can't do what it really wants to do. (did you know that as people- we're supposed to sweat? imagine that!) so... i looked all over for a non- antiperspirant. just a deodorant please. they have all sorts of them for men... but for women... i guess it's not really feminine to sweat at all! :) i finally found one- and it works great- for about half a day. if i don't shower at least once a day- gasp!- and put on deodorant immediately, and again later... then it's pretty much over with me for the day. let's just say i wouldn't be "sure" enough to play volleyball, or raise my hand in a class, or to hug a friend... or put my arm around my husband.. i smelled so bad yesterday that i think thadd's eyes were watering. hehe...
ahh.. the joys of pregnancy. :)

They have options at Down to Earth if you are interested. It's still a bit of a crap shoot as to what will work for you, but there are options and they seem to last forever. I have the one I bought when we lived there and I am still using it. Of course, I'm like you, I only use it when I feel inclined.
Now that I think about it, I think they were getting more options in the "natural cosmetics" part of the commissary.
Or...you can just torture Thadd with it. That's always an option.

i had a crystal that worked for me for a few years... but it's not touching this nightmare stinkiness of pregnancy.
haha! if it was JUST thadd i might do that...but i run the risk of bringing on my nausea as well. :)

I too had worse BO when I was pregnant. In fact, I was smellier in every possible way.

Hi Charla

I used "Tom's" before...its Aluminum free. I think I had gotten it at Target.
