Is your sense of smell still really sensitive? Do certain smells make your stomach upset?

Yes it's still more sensitive. I often gag while changing poopy diapers and I've never done that before.

Yes. I work with 4-5 year olds and we have a turtle. I can't even get close to it without gagging.

Yes, I can smell things that my dh and dd can't smell at all. Some smells make me gag.

I've noticed I'm very sensitive to smells - but luckily no gagging. My DH is so sweet and bought me big stargazer lilies this week - but I can't stand the smell of them. I'm going to tell him no more while I'm pregnant!

I'm a teacher, and I've discovered there's nothing worse than the smell of cafeteria chicken patties. Good thing I have a student teacher, because I can't stand to even walk my class all the way to the cafeteria on Chicken Patty Days (every Tuesday).

On the other hand, I've noticed that I now really enjoy cafeteria french fries - which I previously found repulsive. Hmmm.

When not pregnant, I have very little sense of smell.
When pregnant, I have super-human smell. I don't like it!!

Last pregnancy the smell of cigarettes and coffee made me want to wretch.
This pregnancy? Nothing really... I still don't like EVERYTHING smelling so strong though

Yes, mine is still pretty strong. The smell doesn't upset my stomach but just can smell everything instantly.

I can't stand my Dh's smell! I don't know what it is. He gets showers and it's just him. Maybe his clothes or something I have no clue but I can't go near him when he is around.
