  • because of a change in your hormones/body chemistry everything about you will smell different, and because of your heightened sense of smell it will also smell stronger to you.

  • Only if you have a UTI.

  • You should probably be drinking more water. These guys have some good ideas, too. Your urine should be light yellow. Your water needs go up during pregnancy, because now you have more blood circulating, and you're making amniotic fluid. Your sense of smell is definitely stronger, and that could be the difference.
