My husband says I have a "super sniffer"

So I'm 23 weeks pregnant and this might sound silly, but I've notices two strange things happening. Firstly, I can't remember shit! I'm sooooo absentminded. I've always had some issue remembering things (mostly things I don't think are relevant and end up being relevant so maybe it's just bad judgement) but since being pregnant I feel like I can't remember anything!
Second, my husband says I have a "super sniffer" because he says I smell things he can't smell. One days he was cutting salmon in the kitchen and I knew it was bad and I wasn't even in the room. Things like that happen almost on a daily basis.

Have any of you pregnant ladies noticed enhanced sense of smell or increased forgetfulness??

  • Yes to both! I don't get the forgetfullness thing, but the "super sniffer" is because your sinuses have become enlarged.

  • My husband called it "dog nose". With my first pregnancy I had to change every soap in our house because the smells bothered me. I had dog nose with my first 3 pregnancies. I haven't had an issue with this current one.
