  • Oh...Pine Sol makes me ill..NO joke!

    However while I was Pregnant with my second baby I craved the smell of Tide. I would put the Tide in the washer turn the water on to fill and basically put my head in the washer and smell. My DH thought I was insane. After my baby was born the compulsion to smell Tide was gone and I did not have anything like that with my later pregnancy.

  • If something that is not food smells overly good to you, then you might be lacking nutrients.
    My first pregnancy I had some blueberry face scrub, and It smelled soooo good! I wished it was food so I could eat it!
    This is called Pica
    They don't know for SURE that it means you are lacking, but there may be a connection between pica, and an iron deficiency.

  • I usually hate the smell of the nail salon, we have one in Walmart here and I hated it and would usually go somewhere else to check out if they had the fumes going strong. Lately I find myself sitting outside the salon just sniffing, I can't get enough of that smell. Hubby thinks I am nuts.

  • No. But I've heard of women craving odd things when preggo. I saw this one woman on tv who liked eating Ajax powder.

  • I've heard of women craving household cleaners while pregnant. like the blue sparkly ones especially. they see them and think they look refreshing. If you crave things like that, i would definitely remove them from your home.

  • YES! i am 7 months pregnant with my second child. i actually just picked up the computer 20 minutes ago and googled "obsessed with pinesol" and have found tons of artilcles. i have always loved the smell, i was starting to think that it was something psychological from my childhood, but after reading all of these blogs, there are a lot of people out there with this. i also find that smelling the pinesol makes me crave chewing on ice.
