While reviewing pregnancy journal entries from last year, I find thisâ€¦
Note from the first trimester: I can taste my teeth.

What do they taste like?
I could have written a similar one: “I can smell the kleenex.” And we don’t buy the kind with perfume, either.
I’m dying to know what they tasted like!
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.
Huh, I can’t taste mine…licking doesn’t seem to help…and is attracting unwanted attention.
Hmmm – Haven’t been pregnant, but I used to say I could ‘feel’ my teeth when I had one too many cocktails in college….
Oh NICE me too! I’m not pregnant though. This totally counts as an unusual ability.
Did they taste metallic? I got that a lot in my first trimester.
Did you ever smell scalp? Not your own, the scalp of others. So vile.
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.
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 could smell her nose hairs.
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!!!
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!
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.
OMG! That is hilarious! I actually just had my 3rd son April 4th… and I actually remember thinking one night that I could smell my toenails!? How nuts is that!? Love your blog – you have a regular reader in me!!
