I stopped eating for 10 weeks first time I ws pregnant.

Everything smelled like petrol.

In future do your scrambled eggs in the microwave (30secs or so per egg) they don't smell when done that way.

Eggs do smell when you hard-boil them, even if fresh. You are more sensitive to it because of your pregnancy (congrats!) - now you know hard boiled eggs are off the menu for you for a while!

pop to the shops and buy some pre-packaged sandwiches.

General - egg mayo sandwiches are made from hard boiled eggs, not scrambled! They taste different! That would be yuk! I like the chunks of egg! And cress ... on nice brown bread .... yum!

biddy - the advice to buy a pre-packaged sandwich is good, just be prepared to put it down again in disgust as soon as you break open the packaging, but it's worth a try if you are really craving that food.

When I was first pregnant I read not to eat prepacked sarnies.

Could you bear to peel them, perhaps with a peg on your nose, and then you could leave them in the garden for the birds/cats/foxes/ other wildlife?

That way at least someone is eating them and they also won't be in the bin continuing to smell.

I know this but if you can't stomach the smell of a hard boiled egg <now really wants an egg sarnie> then it's a quick fix.

Is the mayonnaise freshly made or from a jar?
