    I'm pretty sure i can smell things that don't even usually even HAVE a smell! OH bought me a new hot water bottle the other day and i can't bear to use it because the smell of the rubber is SO strong!! :haha: And yesterday i wandered around feeling 'car-sick' but craving cheese sandwiches all afternoon, and swinging from angelc bliss to nagging nightmare (poor OH!). Seems like the seven week mark is a bit of a milestone for me! Yet on some level i embrace each yukky symptom because it lets me know bean's still there and well :) Especially after a big scare last week.

    Any of you ladies at about 7 weeks too? x

    I am actully 8 weeks 2 days ( my ticker is a little off.) I can remember when my super smelling powers kicked in! I couldnt drink my water in a restaurant because I thought my ice smelled "funny"

    Ive always had a really sensitive sense of smell but now its out of control. I can smell everything so clearly but on the down side its making me feel really sick on a regular basis. I could easily give truffle pigs a run for their money ATM. x

    It's so wierd! There must be some evolutionary reason for a super-sense-of-smell! Perhaps to sniff out the pickles and cheese sandwiches... :)

    My poor dog can't really come near me. I can smell him from the other side of the room!

    I feel the same. I developed my super human smell rather late... popping in at 8 1/2 weeks. My DH still cannot come anywhere close to me with deo, aftershave, his shampoo, or his cologne. I gag. My poor cats, who I love dearly, are at my wits end because even though DS and DH clean the box every day I swear I can smell it. But I loooove the smell of vinegar.

    I'm 7 weeks today and I've got super human smelling skills too! Not to mention massive boobs. The bionic sense of smell will eventually be replaced by a mostly blocked nose so take heart :D

    I can. smell. everything. too :( It sucks.

    For now though, I love going into the bathroom after OH has sprayed his cologne because it reminds me of him and smells good. That and my apple scented spray are really the only things that I can tolerate.

    I'm darn near popping out of my bras that are 38E too.

    I am just into week 6.
