From bigger bosoms to a perpetually runny nose, pregnancy has brought with it many perks & pitfalls. Some I was warned about, some were miserably unexpected.
However, one thing that I didn’t anticipate was gaining a sense of smell.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had an incredibly weak sense of smell. I can smell things like onions cooking, or nail polish remover. But as an avid baker, half the time I can’t even smell my cakes in the oven.
Not any more! Today, we made a Sunday roast and I smelt it all. And I can smell flowers! I’ve never smelt flowers before!
Alas, it’s not all a bed of roses. I can also now smell the tube. Definitely one of the major pitfalls of pregnancy so far. I could have happily gone my entire life without smelling the BO on the tube. I feel a little sick just remembering it.
