It’s easy to forget the not-so-nice sides of being pregnant and although I wouldn’t change anything, this time around all the feelings seems to be a lot more intense. My extra sensitive nose seems to have been contributing heavily to my morning sickness. I think it’s subsiding – I keep reading my pregnancy apps about reaching the second trimester. But until it does fully I’m doing my best to avoid my key triggers. Here are a few of them:
My husband’s deodorant: formerly unnoticed and inoffensive, suddenly over-powering. I try and avoid our room after a certain time in the morning.
Cigarette smoke: I always seem to find myself behind someone at the very moment they’re lighting up – and I can’t escape it. I can even smell it strongly on people in the bus. Urgh.
