Some women experience the need to smell wierd stuff or eat wierd stuff during pregnancy. I have even heard of people having the urge to eat laundry detergent. I myself craved the smell of hand sanitizer with my son. My doctor said that it was my body's way of letting me know I was lacking some sort of vitamin etc. They switched my prenatal vitamin and had me take flinstone vitamins along with it. After about a week the urge to sniff hand sanitizer went away. Whatever you do resist the urge. Do not sniff bleach. That isn't good for you even if you were not pregnant. Call your doctor asap and let him know what is going on. Hopefully they can determine what nutrient or vitamin you, and your baby are lacking. Hope this helps.
