Nostalgia

While reviewing pregnancy journal entries from last year, I find this…

Note from the first trimester: I can taste my teeth.

    What do they taste like?

  • Skye Says:

    I could have written a similar one: “I can smell the kleenex.” And we don’t buy the kind with perfume, either.

  • Kirsten Says:

    I’m dying to know what they tasted like!

  • Peeved Michelle Says:

    I think I have written once in my journal since I got pregnant. It was at about 10 weeks. Now, I just need to put a note in there to read the blog.

  • Megan Says:

    Huh, I can’t taste mine…licking doesn’t seem to help…and is attracting unwanted attention.

  • Melissa Says:

    Hmmm – Haven’t been pregnant, but I used to say I could ‘feel’ my teeth when I had one too many cocktails in college….

  • leslie Says:

    Oh NICE me too! I’m not pregnant though. This totally counts as an unusual ability.

  • Claire Says:

    Did they taste metallic? I got that a lot in my first trimester.

  • amanda Says:

    Did you ever smell scalp? Not your own, the scalp of others. So vile.

  • amethyst Says:

    Except baby scalp! Baby scalp is the best smell! Embrace the smell of little baby heads!

    Also, currently ten weeks today…yeah, can’t taste my teeth. I think the Frosted mini-wheats are getting in the way.

  • Kait Says:

    Ew… I can always smell scalp. It reminds me of the smell of pasta (specifically macaroni, for some reason).

    I can’t say as I had the experience of tasting my own teeth, though. During my first trimester, I swear I could smell my husband’s gas before he released it. It drove me crazy!

  • BOSSY Says:

    Bossy could smell her nose hairs.

  • Candice Says:

    I have a very similar entry on our website from when I was pregnant last year…”I can smell my zipper”

    Man, I thought all those smells and tastes would be with me forever but 10 weeks after giving birth they are gloriously gone!!!

  • abi Says:

    Ooh, I remember those days. It’s been a couple years now since I’ve been pregnant, which therefore means it’s been a couple years since I’ve been constantly nauseated, when realizing I was smelling everything made me smell everything even more strongly, when brushing my teeth was just another excuse to puke. Thank you, Maggie, for reminding me about this part – it helps quelch the pangs of wanting to do it again!

  • HDC Says:

    I didn’t get the tasting my teeth thing till 1 year post-partum. It was the weirdest thing. Though it did get me to the dentist after lagging on it for 4+ years. It took about two months to dissipate.
