can't remember.... how long into being pregnant before you notice your sense of smell getting more keen?

About six hours in my case - and everything had a smell which made me sick

But generally it's about six weeks I think.

I'm only six weeks gone, and the smell of fresh chicken made me feel awful the other day, I never even noticed it had a smell before!!!

You have to make sure you seek out clean air and good smells.

Between 6-12 weeks if I remember right. I thought I could smell what someone had eaten for dinner the night before, even if they were walking down the other side of the street...

Before I knew I was pregnant for me - both times. This time it was one of the reasons I suspected I was before I took a test. Yuck, I hate it. I am always looking around pubs for whichever idiot has lit up (well the few times I go to pubs these days...) when it is probably someone smoking in the street about 5 blocks away....

It was the first thing that i noticed, before sore boobs or anything else.
Not sure exactly when, but it was before i knew i was pg and missed my period.

straight away

...and it was cigarette smoke that got to me too!
I could be in a car with the windows up and i'd KNOW that we'd just passed someone smoking, or if someone walked past the house, it made me gag.
