OMG, is anyone else experiencing extremely heightened senses lately? Mine is the sense of smell. I bought a bag of roasted green chile, and it sat in my fridge for a couple of days before I could repackage and freeze, and now I SWEAR, everything in the fridge and the freezer has this weird freezer burned green chile taste to it! Even the ice! I got so sick of the ice, I dumped the whole thing yesterday, cleaned out the bin and let it start making more. Seems to be helping minimally. I ate some toast this morning and I could taste it in that too! It is driving me bonkers!! I smell it when I walk in the kitchen!
My DH swears there is no smell and he smells/tastes nothing. Last night he was eating some spinach dip and it was so overwhelming I wanted to smack him with some listerine haha.
Anyone else experiencing this? It is driving me bonkers.
I made garlic bread the other night to go with our spaghetti. I smelled it so strongly that it nearly gagged me! I washed the cookie sheet I used to cook the garlic bread and last night I fixed chicken tenders on it. While eating the tenders I could taste the stinking garlic!! My husband told me I was insane but I know it was there.
All of my senses perk up when I'm pregnant...and I'm someone that is already hyper-sensitive to sounds & smells... YIKES!!
There is this apt behind us & I think the person leaves his/her 3 small yappy dogs in the place. They bark CONTINUOUSLY...not even exaggerating....all day or night. At first we thought that maybe the person was dead & we were going to call animal control. It's that bad. =(
And I am a beer lover, but if Ed drinks it he smells like my dad would when I was younger...it disgusts me to be kissing & cuddling w/ a man that smells like my dad. The other thing is his leather belt. wth?!?!?

omg lol that is too funny! when wes drinks beer it creeps me out too and cant stand the smell of it, but then again i cant wait to have one after baby gets here. weird stuff lol
I've noticed my sense of smell is crazy sensitive lately. And my kindergarteners are coming to school with little bottles of scented hand sanitizer, like from Bath and Body Works...and the smells just about kill me when they put them on! It's just so strong to me now. Then they want to share them with their friends so they "can have clean hands too"...I keep telling them to put it away and use it AFTER school!
I am super sensitive to cologne or perfume! People's smells in general. I swear I can tell is someone has smoke in the past week!

I'm so glad this symptom went away for me in the first trimester! DH ate French onion dip a few times and it made me want to puke to smell it on him when we went to bed. I had to make him sleep facing away from me and I had to face away from him. My sniffer is still probably a little more sensitive than when I am not pregnant, but not nearly as bad as in the first tri.
i have this trouble a lot at work! I can tell you every resident and intern who has bad breath. I know exactly who is standing near me by the way they smell. You could put me anywhere in the hospital with my eyes closed and I could tell you exactly where we are by the smell. Every wing smells different!
I could never ever be a nurse. I would have had to quit the first time I got pregnant. I can't even go in the room if a patient has pooped recently. I don't know how many bathrooms I have barfed in after a patient's smell triggered me
