I have very strong senses of both taste and smell. Always have.

This pregnancy is driving my sense of smell into over drive and it is making me bonkers!!! It's horrible, I want to shove cotton up my nose or something so I can't smell.

I am totally there with you. And aversion of those smells too. Even perfume or makeup is making me gag now!

That's the biggest problem I have right now...My fridge is clean, and I rarely ever noticed a smell before, but I can't stand opening it now. My garbage disposal stinks, so does the trash, and my litter box, we won't even talk about that...I had a clogged toilet to take care of today, and believe it or not, it was the rubber smell of the plunger that got me good.

Oh the joys of early pregnancy.

Ha! So weird, huh?

I just cleaned my fridge a couple weeks ago, all the shelves out and cleaned in the sink etc, and lately all I can smell is the milk (it's a week before it reaches the sell by date). Driving me nuts, too! No more perfume, either. Shame, because Coach Poppy smells so good. Maybe I can put some on my ankles or something..
