I am 4 months pregnant and can smell every smell around me! EVERYTHING! Any other mamas having or have had this while being pregnant? When does it go away? I feel like I have super human smelling powers and sometimes the smells I'm smelling are so strong I feel sick to my stomach!

The superwoman sense of smell stays with me the entire pregnancy. It's actually how I knew I was pregnant with my oops baby. lol

It's so awful! If I'm not congested I'm smelling food in the next room and gagging! I've had the same experience with each of my pregnancies. I think it's another side effect we all get to enjoy.

It's the worst. I avoid grocery shopping if possible because all the scents assault me the whole time. Sometimes sucking on hard candy helps me but not all the time 😞

Yes! I keep jolly ranchers or lemon candies around to try to help me focus on those rather than the smells. It's hard with all the fall scents out now! Those cinnamon pine cones are the worst!

I am SUPER sensitive to smell.  And things I used to love, not so much anymore!

Yes, I didn't want to say it but I can smell everyone around me and I want to throw up 😓. It's so bad I try an avoid going any where with crowds of people. Which is pretty much every where I go.

I hated the smell of carrots and couldn't eat them, carrots are my favorite veggie. I have made all my meals at home carrot friendly so I had to change everything that's how I found out I was pregnant.

Yes,  everything smells so strong and it's disgusting.  I can't stand going to my favorite restaurant.   Oh well,  at least it won't last forever.

Wow, I didn't realize it was so common... not looking forward to it popping up since I've made it this long.

I too had this problem! It went away sometime in my second trimester. Hope it goes away for you soon

My heightened sense of smell has stayed with me the ENTIRE time; and I'm 33 weeks pregnant. I can't wait for it to go away. It's super inconvenient and gross! I don't like smelling everything so clearly! It makes me feel like the world is really dirty.

I never had a terrible problem with this but I definitely had an enheightend sense of smell, although it went away quite quickly!

I have the same problem!! I’m constantly taking the trash out ahaha! I’m not sure if it’ll go away or not

I’m hoping this goes away soon too! I’m 31 weeks and it’s still going strong, I think it either goes away or stays the whole pregnancy!

Mine comes and goes... sometimes I can really smell things and I'm super sensitive, and other times not as much.   I'm grateful it's not consistent, because  when it is, it can be overwhelming.

Yes!  I am already sensitive and pregnancy just amplified it.  

Maggie posted this 4 weeks ago

This is still an issue for me! My trash can sits right by the fridge and the kitchen table, talk about gross!

Mine also kind of comes and goes! Somedays I can smell everything and other days it doesn’t bother me one bit! It’s so weird!
