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

    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….

    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!

    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.
