Is anyone else going crazy over the smell of cleaning products and chemical smells? I am 30 weeks pregnant and my OH thinks I've gone mad. I have just put a dishwasher cleaner through even though I only did it a few days ago - just because it smells so good. Hope it's not dangerous...
Yes - me! I am 39 weeks and have had similar cravings for most of this pregnancy (and was same with first baby) Mad isn't it. We used to have a cleaner come in to our office and clean around us whilst we worked and I couln't get enough of the lemon spray she used!
Ooh me too in fact have gone through three bottles of bleach in the last few weeks I cant get enough of the smell of it - am quite sure I could drink it if it wasn't poisonous!! Highlight of my day is bleaching the kitchen surfaces and the bathroom - however have managed to ruin a number of jumpers as bump is too big and now have many with nice bleach stains on!
I loved the smell of petrol and turps,we had workmen in work and i walked in the room and it was heaven the smell of turps,i was like a mad woman running round to find the smell and it was the workmans cloth with turps on,so i pinched the raggy cloth and put it in my pocket,and kept taking it out during the day to sniff....daughter was born fine,funny thing she likes the smell aswell..
sh77 and Redheadgal I am just the same!!! Musty & dusty smells, damp towels, damp sand, plaster dust, mmmmmm! I've been sticking my head in the cupboard under the stairs regularly, also have to walk past a building site en route to DD's school and must say I walk past as slowly as possible savouring the smells, DH thinks it's hilarious!
I love damp smells. Damp towels, concrete, earth, wet stones/pebbles.. Mmmmm love it. And musty books! Also oddly stale cigarette smokeon clothing even though I don't smoke or anyone around me, but when i come across the smell I inhale like there's no tomorrow!
