Super Smell

I think I have become a Super-hero and my power is SUPER SMELL. I swear to you, I can smell everything and its not good. I have had to remove every air freshner and candle from my house. I cant stand the smell of cleaning supplies. For some reason, our kitchen smells like maple syrup and I cant remember the last time we used that. Dan's deoderant made me nauseous last night while we were sleeping. I swear the neighbor's had pizza last night but I cant be sure. I promise you I can smell the pine trees in our front yard and the window isnt even open. Its horrible!

If I had my choice, I would have liked to pick a different super power. Maybe flying. Or being invisible (so I could sleep under my desk) But the smell thing is threatning to make me crazy because it leads to uncontrollable dry heaving. I never thought that the smell of a cinnamon apple candle would push me over the edge, but it has.

Other than that, Im doing good and really looking forward to the u/s on Friday. Has anyone else had an u's at 7 weeks? Do you think I will get a picture print out? I so want to hang it on my fridge!

Hope everyone is having a great week!

You better get a picture! Heck, I'd be willing to hang it on my fridge. ; )

Sorry about the super power. Too bad you couldn't get invisibility instead. That would totally rock!

You should for sure get a picture with every ultrasound! :)

I had super smell too! Once I was in the living room and knew Louie had opened the jar of peanut butter in the kitchen! The worst is going to the mall! SOO many smells!

I had the same super power during pregnancy. It was hell during the first trimester. There was a certain bush outside that made me want to scream. The smell was over powering, yet I had never smelled it before pregnancy! Don't worry, the super sense of smell gets better after the first trimester. I could smell people before I saw them. It was so funny.

Thats too bad about the smell:-(
I hope you get a picture!

We got 2 or 3 print outs from our ultrasound at 7 weeks and they're all on my fridge :) Eventually I might get a frame meant to hold ultrasound pics and move them, but I still love seeing them everyday. GL!

I had an u/s at 7 weeks (went in for spotting); heard the heartbeat AND got a picture!! YAHOO!

Sorry about the smelling thing. Jim used to eat this chicken that would set me over the edge. Ew. I hope it gets better! I think I would like the super power of time travel. :)

I so hope you get a pic! That would be mean if they didn't give you one! So happy for you! I can't wait to dry heave!!:) I am sure it will get old after the first couple times but I get so excited just reading about everyones symptoms!!!

Super smell can be a pain. Hang in there!
We had our first ultrasound at 7 weeks....that's when we found out it was twins. We got a few pics and got to hear the heartbeats. You should too. It's an amazing experience.

Marijana said...

You should def. get a picture. I have one from every u/s (the baby ones, not any Clomid ones, obviously). Can't wait to hear about it!

Erica said...

That sounds exactly like me right now! I'm also 7 weeks along;-) We had our first ultrasound last week (6 weeks 0 days) and we got a picture! Make sure to ask them to print one out for you!

Danse said...

Ask for the print out - I've gotten print outs that early :o)

Also - the super smell stinks (pun intended).

Isn't it wonderful LOL
Everytime I would open the pantry I had to plug my nose until I grabbed what I wanted. It took me like 10 minutes to get used to my living room smell after I would get home from work everyday.
Thankfully it's gotten so much better & I don't notice it anymore so hopefully that will be the case for you!!

Shan - I had the exact same super power. I smelled a mysterious smell in the stairway hall of our house that made me ill. I couldn't take candles - and meat cooking? AUGH! It does get better. And you should get a picture. I got one at that point and heard the heartbeat - it is a life changing moment. Have fun!

Molly said...

Other super powers would be much more fun; I agree. Someone suggested you stay away from the mall, and I second that 100%. I didn't have to deal with much m/s, but one event was in a mall foodcourt when I thought I was going to lose it.

Blech-- hang in there!

Dianne said...

Aww that sucks, have you tried finding something that smells good to you, and keeping it with you? I can't really give advice on this issue since it hasn'r happened to me but hey it might work!

gringa78 said...

LOL @ the smell superpower. I had a pregnent coworker who used to tell me my office smelled like hamsters. I don't think that's good.

Post that picture as soon as you get it on Friday! I can't believe you're at 7 weeks already!!!!!! So exciting!!

I don't think i wished you a Happy Mother's Day, so Happy Mother's Day, Shan!

mtendere said...

I got pictures printed at my u/s at 8 weeks, so I hope you get some, too. I know it's exciting. Hang in there with the super smell.

Carly said...

yay!!! i had a picture from my u/s at 5w6d- so you should def get one- and if they don't give it to you, ask, they will print you one :)

Sarah said...

I hear you on the smells Shannie; Troy called me the "bloodhound" during my pregnancy.

Don't worry, some day your super power will be helpful.

And get the photo!

I STILL can't do air fresheners of any kind, and I am nearly 30 weeks! I was driving in my H's car the other day and almost vomitted from the mango something or other he had in there. I quickly put it in the glovebox, and it was better. :)

Good luck on your ultrasound!

tarawhite said...

I had the same thing when i was pregnant. It did get better but at the beginning the smell of coffee was soo overpowering. it made me completely sick. I got an ultrasound picture at 7 weeks. I went in because of spotting but we saw and heard the heartbeat and got the "bean" pic. it's cool. Don't panic if they have trouble at first, it's sometimes hard to find. That always made me super nervous. I can't wait to see you. i know you are glowing.

Bliss04 said...

we got a print out of a picture at every u/s, so you should definitely get one! your super smelling powers is funny. (not funny haha!) i've heard many pregnant women experience this, but not to your extent! dry heaving over a candle smell is definitely a new one to me! gl on your u/s, they're awesome!

Lindsay said...

GL on friday!! I hope you get and U/S so we can see your little bean ;-)
