Non-food orientated pregnancy aversions?

Does anyone have anything associated with nausea, that has nothing to do with food?

I feel sick every time we drive past an ikea and property programmes suddenly make me queasy.

Is it just me?

Not just you! The sight of the Aldi across the road from my work made me feel so sick when I was in the first trimester!! I'd forgotten that! smile

I have managed to keep the ikea one going from my 1st pg. Only been 2 years, you'd think I would be over it by now!

The smell of Fairy Liquid. I've never used it since.

I've been unable to wind my beautiful, antique clock up because the ticking makes me want to puke. It's been 30 weeks now & I still can't stand the sound! Also certain voices & songs make me feel sick.
Quite glad ikea doesn't do it as I've a pregnancy obsession with their meatballs, chips & gravy!

My gorgeous golden retriever - I used to love his puppy smell but I really can't stand it at the moment. Makes me retch. Breaking my heart :-(

Oh, and bleach.

Seeing anything related to the computer game The Sims, who knows what that was about!

I've become incredibly queasy, most unusual for - is that weird????

imaginationzero Mon 23-Sep-13 19:33:45

I didn't mean queasy, I mean I've become very squeamish - crazy stuff sets me off, madness!

The smell of dog poo bags that were "baby powder" scented with DS. Barfed every time I opened the drawer that they were in. Boak.

This pregnancy I had a very severe reaction to the tupperware box that I had mashed swede in. The mashed swede made me vom but even after DH had emptied the tupperware, just looking at it made my mouth fill up with saliva.

France. That and mobile home camping.

There is actually a reason for this. We went on holiday there between weeks 5 and 7 of my pregnancy, and about two or three days in the tiredness and nausea kicked in (a bit unexpected, as I hadn't really had any of that with child no. 1). I didn't sleep well, which made the tiredness worse, which made the queasiness worse, and I spent an awful lot of that holiday wishing I was at home. Now, even looking at some of the bits and bobs that we bought - food, maps, paperwork, etc - makes me want to boak.

With no. 1, I went off Wii Ski, which I had previously loved. Still not got back to it three years later...

Ocelots my aversion to feet. I was almost phobic pre-pregnancy, but now it can appreciate pretty feet. Feels very weird.

AnythingNotEverything Tue 24-Sep-13 11:18:08

Wow - epic auto correct fail. That post was meant to start ...

"I've lost", rather than "ocelots". WTF is an ocelot?!

MummyJetsetter Tue 24-Sep-13 16:04:38

People talking across me makes me go all lightheaded and queasy! Like out at a meal and the 2 people either side of me speaking slagging everything off to each other, it was like it made me claustrophobic! Normally it would do my head in but at the moment it makes me ill!

AnythingnotEverything an Ocelot is a type of big cat, spotty and smaller than a puma, my sister was nearly eaten by one when she was 2 and we lived in Venezuela!

I usually love the smell of cleaning things, but dp bought a new type of dettol, I can't remember the name but it's pink. I cleaned our office with it today and have had all the windows in the house open since, it STINKS! dp likes the smell, makes me want to throw up.

I can't bear the feeling of my cats heart beating on my chest when she comes for a cuddle, makes me feel sick and like I can't breathe. Poor moggie!

Julietee Wed 25-Sep-13 10:42:38

Stale cigar smoke. When I go over to my parents' house - makes me want to throw up when almost nothing else has made me queasy.

Listening to a podcast in the car and the American accent made me sick. I had to put on a British accented podcast instead. Conversely, the smell of the car window cleaner totally took the sickness away.
