I seem to be still ultra sensitive to smells, and no, I'm def not pregnant again.

My brother and mum and partner don't seem to be bothered by smells or can't smell them, like I can smell bleach residue stronger.. peoples perfumes hurt my nose still like if too strong and they don't notice, smell peoples odours a lot. Although I have always been sensitive to smells but just wondered? I don't smoke and live in a village and live a healthy life I think, so maybe I don't get as many toxins which can damage your smell?

If it is due to breastfeeding its not a bad thing, as I can smell when food has gone off before others, maybe it is protective. I just cant seem to read anywhere about it.

Yes! I can smell our tap water, the water out the kettle, our curtains. Drives me bonkers!
