  • Yes...any type of musky (i called it "old lady" perfume) scent made me want to hurl. Also that real strong and fruity body spray that for some reason I still smell everywhere. I think VS makes it.

  • I had to change deodorants when I was pregnant because the kind that I usually wore made me nauseous. I also couldn't stand the smell of raw meat. Pregnancy can cause some pretty strange side effects, lol

  • Even when I'm not pregnant, but especially when I am, if someone is "bathing" in cologne or perfume, I have to run to the bathroom. Drives me insane!!

  • Yes my mom always buys DH bod spray and I hate it. When Im pregnant it makes me think of poop every time I smell it. It makes me mad because I buy P. Diddys guy spray and it smells sooo goood but he wont wear it unless we are going some where and will only wear bod at home.

  • I was working on a postpartum unit while I was pregnant. Just mom's FLOWERS made me nauseous. I'd have to change assignments with another nurse almost every day!

  • Yes! My DH wears Curve, and i LOVE it... but when I was pregnant, it made me want to hurl. Every time he put it on, I made him take a shower or stay at least 10 feet from me.

    Before I was preggo, & now that I'm not anymore, I can't stand it when someone bathes in perfume, or if the perfume is very heavy or strong. It's an asthma trigger for me :(
