  • I had mine from the very beginning, probably before I found out I was pregnant. It was one of the things that made my morning sickness a hundred times worse : / I'm kind of used to it now, I've learned to avoid the stuff that makes me recoil =]

  • Shame on me, I was smoking when I found out I was pregnant. I quit that day had not had one since but after about a week and half of not smoking I had a huge heightened since of smell. I think mine was a mixture of being pregnant and not smoking. but that was around week 5 in my pregnancy when my smell increased.
