  • I don't remember having that problem when I was pregnant, but hey, you've earned the right to be weird! Hang in there, it's almost over! Oh, and CONGRATULATIONS!

  • lots of pg women have wierd senses of smell. that or maybe there is an old sandwich stuck to the bottom of your belly and you just can't see it ;-)

  • You're probably just extremely sensitive to smells. I never felt like I smelt weird when I was pregnant, but I did always feel gross so I showered a lot too!

  • Its gotta be the heightened sense of smell. I'm constantly wondering what stinks and my hubby doesn't smell anything. lol.
