Pregnancy "superpowers" (sensitivities and heightened senses)

Peggi Peggi
During pregnancy, most women notice changes. These changes can range to certain smells or foods making them sick, or the sudden craving for odd foods or tastes! Some women even love the smell of something they typically wouldn't enjoy!

So, during pregnancy what were/is your "superpower"?

Hah, for me, McDonald's smelled like something rotten, even my favorite foods off the menu! Couldn't drive past it without getting sick! But, despite my being against leather, I almost craved the smell of fresh leather. I would go to the mall and go into Wilson's Leather because it just smelled so amazing at the time! I also would be able to smell from the upstairs floor of the house when anyone had forgotten to put the lid on the coffee (apparently this is common) not just MAKING coffee...I could just smell the open container!!!

I was once so hungry that I did something I never did before; walk into a Taco Bell. I immediately began dry heaving from the smell and left without buying anything.

My body was telling me something healthy.

I was perfectly healthy the entire time with both mine. I generally don't eat fast food in the first place unless it's pizza so I didn't have any weird cravings.

We got taken to Golden Corral for dinner one night. It was the worst decision ever! I got so sick walking in the front door we had to leave. One time we went to my mom's sisters house, and she has 6 kids, plus there was about 10 adults there. There was so much noise in the house it made me sick and I almost passed out. I had to go running outside cause of the heat and noise. Then I had to leave. That was strange to me. When ever I got up in the morning I could not smell or look at food at all. Which is bad when you have a two year old who wants a cup first thing in the morning. Opening up the fridge was terrible. Especially if I saw last nights dinner. I was so sick my last pregnancy that it took me 6 months to start gaining weight, but once I did I made up for it. I was sick all the way til the end, both pregnancies.

Although strangely enough, I want another one right now. I am so ready to have a girl. Just got to talk hubby into the idea. We know we want one just not sure on the timing.

Taking care of a toddler during pregnancy, not to mention pregnancy nausea is awful. My oldest had terrible allergies and had this awful diapers, she'd wake up and call for me, and I'd just shudder "Oh, G*g. Don't let it be a bad one." If My Man was home when she got up, he'd change it. But, oh, those allergy diapers were awful when I had pregnancy nausea.

I'm sorry you suffered the entire time. My third pregnancy, I asked my doctor what we could do, as I have migraines and I am nauseous most of the time anyway, and the threat of dehydration was great in early pregnancy. He put me on Compazine (it's B in the Pregnancy List, which means no threat to the fetus), which does not hurt the developing fetus and it REALLY helped a lot. They also use Zofran (also a B drug) now, which was developed for chemo patients. It won't hurt the baby, either. My Pediatrician took it during her last pregnancy. A lot of my clients also have taken Zofran for pregnancy nausea. You need to gain the weight and not dehydrate and sometimes chemistry is the best route.

I know what you mean. I actually got lucky my husband was unemployed (he got laid off with no promise of the job to remain), so he would get the mornings, because as soon as my eyes were open. I had to run to the bathroom. We even had to switch sides of the bed because I did not have enough time to crawl over him (My side is against the wall). Lol

I have heard of those drugs. I am one of those people who turn down any medicine, usually. I may have to take that stuff, I am thinking of having another one!

My husband is working now, so if I do get pregnant. I will not have enough time to get sick.
