If you’re pregnant or have ever been pregnant I bet there was a time in there that something hit you that instantly made you feel sick.
For each of my pregnancies I had the “joy” of the over-sensitive nose symptom. I could walk into a room and smell everything — good and bad, but mostly bad. I had a long list of foods and smells that would make me vomit instantly and it was not fun, but many pregnant women have this to some degree or another.
Some smells are harder to avoid than others — others on our ‘do not come near me’ list catch us by surprise and the most common ones are pretty normal things. Yesterday I wanted to know what smells were the most offensive to you while you were pregnant — to see if my chicken and smoke aversions were common. I asked on my Facebook page and Twitter account and found that many smell aversions were quite common among women who’ve been pregnant.
