Phantom Odor!

This may sound bizarre, but I keep smelling maple syrup everywhere.  Outside, in the car, in the house, at the store...I'll just get a quick whiff and then it's gone.  We don't eat maple syrup, we haven't had any in our house since we've moved here.  It's not my soaps/lotions/detergents, and I'm definitely not craving it.  Anyone else smell things that aren't there?

  • THAT IS SO STRANGE!  I totally had the exact same thing with my last pregnancy.  Syrup everywhere!  And I ended up having to eat it.  Once I got a whif I had to find some french toast or something.  How odd!  Good to know I'm not a total wacko!

  • No, I have not smelt a strange odor.  But lately every time I eat an avocado, I taste peanut butter.

  • I smell everything super strongly right now - like I am part blood hound.  Sometimes they are phantom (guacamole in my classroom today) and sometimes just really too mild for others to detect.  I am also hypersensitive to high pitched sounds - they drive me crazy, and most other people can't hear them.   Maybe I am having a puppy!

  • I'd much rather smell syrup, than the phantom garbage smell that I've been having! Ever since I got pregnant, I've felt that my kitchen smells like garbage. No matter how pristinely clean it is.

  • I've smelled perfume lately that isn't there. I thought it was a ghost :)  Guess its just a normal thing. That would be horrible to smell garbage! Sorry to hear that. I would try a dryer sheet in the bottom of your trash can.
  • Did the smell go away after the pregnancy??! I am smelling maple syrup too! But the weird thing with mine, it's only in our bedroom. I've searched, none of the candle smell anything like it. There are no crazy old plates of pancakes hiding under the bed. I can't figure out why?

  • OP do you take fenugreek for your supply?  That could easily be what it is.
