I’m not sure whether that’s a pms symptom or not, not to scare you, but that’s a pregnancy sign!

@amallama:  Hopefully you’re in the clear (unless you don’t want to be in the clear lol) but it can still happen

@amallama:  Apparently anxiety can boost your sense of smell too, have you been stressed out about anything? Plus if that’s your only symptom, it’s probably not anything to worry about.

I had horrible sensitivity to smells in the past week, and I got my period two days ago. Pregnancy and PMS symptoms are virtually identical — I wouldn’t worry about it.

@roweboat:  this.  I went a month (while on birth control) craving things, having a heightened sense of smell, having to pee every ten minutes and no baby. Went to my gyno (for my annual) and brought it up she said stress can make you experience symptoms that are related to pregnancy. Every now and then I will have very stressful weeks and I crave pineapple and can smell things like a hound dog 😉

I get it with my period, not usually before or after.

It’s definitely a PMS sypmtom for me. Sometimes it’s really bad and I feel nauseous and other times I barely notice it.

It’s a during-period symptom for me AND my sister.

However, I got the short end of that stick and I only really smell bad smells during that week (& a bit before). Just went out on a smoke break? Smells like you’ve been chain smoking for days. Tried a new shampoo? All I can smell are the harsh chemicals in it. It’s awful.

Meanwhile my sis gets smells like delicious food and flowers and… sunshine. I don’t know exactly, but I’m terribly jealous sometimes! 😛

It’s always nice to know someone’s in the same boat as you 🙂
