Heck yes! I can tell if my husband’s had a beer as soon as he walks through the door. I can also now tell whenever things are done baking in the oven from my living room. Luckily I haven’t had all too much nausea, or it would be killing me! I feel like a bloodhound sometimes

Very much so for me.  Sometimes it was pleasant, if I was smelling flowers or something, but most of the time it was something terrible that made me want to hurl.

I did for awhile my 1st trimester but it went away for the most part and I’m thankful for that.

It was the worst! I could walk into the grocery store and tell you which produce was going to be moldy by the next day, and I could tell you exactly what fabric softener you happened to use on your clothes from 10ft away. I hated being able to smell everything. I took my son to a matinee, and the baby 3 rows behind us pooed and I could smell it before the parents did. And as soon as my wonderful sense of smell went away, I was left with a stuffy nose for the remainder of my pregnancy

yup, both times.  and like @troubled, some stuff would make me nauseous, too.  often it was stuff that hadn’t bothered me before!

I most certainly am more sensitive to smells.  The worst of it is that I can smell things that I would of never been repulsed by before but now have no tolerance for whatsoever.  I’m especially adverse to cigarette smoke which I’ve always disliked.  My MIL smokes and when she’s near me I have to walk away, and I’m not talking about a subtle departure.  I abruptly get up and walk away… luckily my DH understands!  Also, I work in a office with cubicles so whenever someone heats up food, I can smell it and be grossed out almost immediately.  Sweet deal :/

Yeah I did, things like the smell of tuna, cooking beef, mayo, cigarette smoke, even some perfumes or soaps would really set me of [nausea].

I could smell a lot of other things too, but those were the really big/bad ones.
