Is there a sound, scent, or other trigger that reminds you of your pregnancy?

When I was preggo I used a certain lotion all the time. Now whenever I smell it I am instantly transported to my pregnant days! Also, I used to get ready for work in the morning with the TV on and I would hear this one commercial every morning. The music from that commercial does it too. If I happen to be putting the lotion on my hands when the commercial is on it is twice as powerful! Do you have a trigger like this?

  • I was very sensitive to smells, and for a long time afterwards whenever I'd open the refrigerator door I'd sniff and remember when the smell would have been overwhelming.

  • Cooking hamburger, I could not stand it when I was pregnant! If I saw or smelled it I would throw up.

  • I have the same exact memory. There was this lotion that my SO would put on me whenever my belly itched, then he would bug me not to scratch. I remember those days...hehe

  • Cheez-its!!! I ate the things constantly! That and peanut butter crackers (for my sugar-levels), sweet tea, and crushed ice! Oh--- I also had this weird thing at the beginning of my pregnancy where all I wanted to eat was chicken strips in tartar sauce. I still eat it from time to time, and it takes me back every time! Ya know, I was sick as a dog for most of my pregnancy, but I really LOVED being pregnant!

  • The smell of raw chicken! It made me so sick when I was pregnant! Also, if I get a "jumpy" nerve or twitch in one of my muscles! I think that feels just like feeling the baby move inside of you!
