I feel for you - but not toomuch because I stupidly thought this would go away when the pregnancy ended anditdidn't.
Tis great for wine tasting and cooking but I'm now constantly sniffing out sources of stinks and eliminating them. DD calls me 'crazy smelling mummy' because I spend two hours hunting the one patch of carpet she spilled milk on a day ago and is now humming
I feel for you, I really do! Had the same stinkin' problem while pregnant, the whole world reeked of.... stuff. Surprisingly, though, I started to enjoy the smell of petrol, something that had always made me über-nauseous. DH was getting a bit worried when I opened the window and gulped in the gasoline fumes..... .
you guys all made me lol )) for me its my sense of taste as well as smell, i had to send back three drinks in a thai place on friday because they all tasted really soapy, then i couldn't eat my main because all i could taste was some kind of camping gas or something - where was the fragrant and promised lemon grass and garlic, loverly. and i can't bear the smell of red wine, have to get my DH to put his glass the other side of the living room or i feel like hurling.
I am currently avoiding (in no particular order or whiffiness....):
- The dishwasher - The fridge - all smokers - the coffee machine (bleeurgh) - the cupboard containing the scented candle that DH bought me at Christmas. Its sooooo horrible, but I can't bring myself to throw it away. - the bin - the first bit of the supermarket where the veg are. - the hall outside our apartment. I remember before I was pg it smelled quite nice.
However, I can now enter the dining room, whatever honked in there over Christmas has mysteriously gone away.....
I really hate the smell of the fridge..the kitchen sink,... even when cleaned to oblivion,... anyone's gassy emissions (!) ...frying onions - actually, make that all food cooking...beer (poor hubby has to keep the glass on the other side of the room too)..and various unknown smells that permeate the car when out driving. My sense of smell is amazing but I am NOT appreciating it!
i sympathise, mine has calmed down a bit now (am 17wks) before knowing i was pg i was choking when dh came to bed after his showers and deoderant, but i figured it was time to do a pregnancy test when i realised i was up in bed with the door shut and i could smell through another shut door downstairs that a bag of popcorn had been opened!!
Urghh.. poor you. I had very little nausea in my pregnancies. But my mother hated the smell of coffee. She used to get the bus to work and was OK until she walked past Carwardines and just about made it to the toilet in work
I frogmarched my poor 15 yr old son to the deodorant aisle in Sainsbury's to choose something we could both agree on. Poor lamb. Although his only response when I told him I couldn't stand what he was using was: "Yeay! Mother repellent!". Little toad.
