Did anyone crave a smell during pregnancy?

And did it last?

I craved the smell of Pine-Sol, to the point where my mouth would actually water when I thought about it. I still love the smell and anytime I'm in the store and happen to see it I have to take a wiff.

  • The smell of Tide laundry detergent. I would put the soap in and stand over the washer while it filled with water. It as just with my second baby. I have never done so much laundry than when I was pregnant with him.

  • probably steak or something of that sort. right now I die when I smell the "summer air" coming out of my air conditioner in the car, but DH just says its dust. I'm also loving the smell of rain in the air

  • You're not alone! One of my old coworkers craved the smell of Pine-Sol too, and another lady craved the rubber smell of new tires.

    For me, I only had it with my first pregnancy, and it was Tone soap! I thought one day I was going to take a big bite of it!

  • I thought it was just me with the smell thing! I loved pine sol and what is really weird is I actually loved the smell of my a/c on a hot day when I first turned the car on. NO clue why! I can't even describe the smell, but I just loved it and it only lasted like 3 seconds. I'm a weirdo! LOL

  • I've craved the smell of Coconut Lime for a while now, like body sprays or lotions. But I can't find the exact scent of it I'm looking for. It's kinda weird lol.
