I cant stand it

When I was pregnant with my daughter over 2 years ago, the smell of beer, used to make me soooooo sick. My hubby drinks sometimes and some evenings he would have a happy hour with some friends and I couldnt stand the smell. Sometimes I would even make him sleep on the couch because I got so sick. So its been over 2 years since our daughter has been born and I still can't stand it. He doesnt understand it at all and says I'm wierd. Of course he picks about it, but I was wondering, have any of you ladies carried over some of your nausiating mishaps from your pregnancies?

  • I became a LOT more squeamish in general...before I got preggers, I had a stomach that would turn at NOTHING...but now, even the slightest bit of gore and I'm queasy.

  • I had this problem with wine..and still have this problem with alcohol in son is 10 months...not surprising really when alcohol is toxic to your system.

  • I had hypermesis, and one of the things that set me off (besides eating anything, drinking anything, or breathing! lol) was smells...and there are a couple that churn my stomach to this day...and my youngest is 14! There are also certain foods I got sick on when I was pregnant that I still can't bring myself to eat...just thinking about them makes me feel nauseated.
