smell aversions

Does anyone else have an aversion to any particular smell? I personally can't stand the smell of cooking eggs or my discharge. I know the second one is weird but I actually asked my bff if I generally smelled odd (no her nose wasn't in my vaginal region) . Lol. Thankfully she said I smelled like soap. Oh and sorry for poor formatting I'm bumping from my phone.

Re: smell aversions

  • Cigarette smoke makes me want to throw up every time I smell it and the cleaner I use in the bathroom has about the same affect. DH has actually started burning essential oils in a diffuser after cleaning the house.  He is so sweet.

  • I had an aversion to Hs breathe for most of this pregnancy. He's not a smelly guy but for a while, mostly first tri, I couldn't be too close to his face bacause it made me sick. I have to ask how that convo was approached though... So bff have you ever caught a whiff of my bits? Or did you hand her a ziplock with some undies in it?

  • The lysol that they used in the bathroom at my work always made me want to gag and walking through the seafood section at the grocery store had the same effect.

  • I've always hated the smell of these things, but exponentially moreso now that I am pregnant:

    mustard on anything

    ketchup on eggs

    cigarette/cigar smoke

    most Indian food (and DH makes this all the time, blegh)

    coffee (and DH's resulting coffee breath)

  • Dont feel bad at all! My little brother for some weird reason always smells like pancakes ( im the only one that smells it) and my boyfriend always smells like pickles! I mean straight out of the shower and he has never ate a pickle in his life! My nose is all sorts of screwed up so i understand your frustration lol.
  • This past week almost all smells! I work at a school and the bathroom, the students, the cafe, all of it makes me nauseous!! It is actually getting difficult to work because everywhere I go I cannot avoid the smells! AHH
