Increased sense of smell

I'm 5 weeks and 6 days with my first pregnancy. I noticed a couple days ago a lot of stuff has been smelling weird! I can smell a lot of new things! Like this: hubby cut his hand yesterday and I could smell the iron in his blood. Also, my father in law was cooking supper for us a couple nights ago and the hamburger meat smelled awful to me but no one else could smell it. Is it too early or late to be experiencing this??

  • It is normal for this to happen. It is part of morning sickness.

  • That's how I figured out I may be pregnant. Actually that was the first sign for both my pregnancies. That & very cold feet.

  • First day of missed period, I get completely nauseous and yeah, the increased smell thing. This time, I was putting nail polish on my fingers (or toes, I can't remember which) when all of a sudden, the polish just smelled HORRIBLE. That's when I knew and bitched out my husband :P

  • I had to make my ex change deodorant. I'd get a whiff of it and hurl.
