    i have noticed with my previous 2 pregnancies that my body smell changes in early pregnancy, before it shows on a test (at about 2/3 weeks). has anyone else experienced this? i have tried to google it, but not really found anything, mainly changes in discharge odour. the thing is ive noticed it for the last week or so again, had a negative test, but im almost certain i am pregnant again. just wondered if it was just me or had anyone else experienced this?

    Yes. My husband noticed that I smelled different several days before I got my BFP. And throughout my pregnancy whenever the baby's had a growth spurt he will tell me when I smell particularly hormonal. I have smelled it myself from time to time as well. I can't use Bio Oil because the smell is too similar to my own and the combination of both makes me feel sick.

    This may be too much information, and it could just be from taking folic acid (only other reason I could think of), but I noticed whenever I had a wee I could smell a kind of sweetcorn smell!

    My hubby says that I've smelt different since day one. He too will be glad it's not just him imagining it....must admit I have noticed it from time to time too.

    Yes! Not only was my sense of smell magnified like 1000% but I think I honk down below! First time i was pregnant I had this smell and this time too. It went as soon as I wasnt pregnant anymore and I think animals pick up on it too.
