Hubs and I went to an Air B&B with his 10 college buddies/their wives. When they all cooked breakfast (fried eggs, potatoes, etc.) all the smells even with the fan on overwhelmed me and gave me a clenching stomachache and made me so nauseous I had to go to a separate colder part of the house. Nobody else was affected. Their reunion dinner was in a musty antique parlor which we’d visited earlier and the only way I could avoid gagging was by chewing 4 candied gingers, 3 Icebreaker mints and holding my breath (the stench was like dead animal carcasses everywhere, it was HORRIFIC). I skipped that dinner b/c of that smell but nobody else seemed bothered. Also, I’m very hungry at certain times of the day, but not other times. Despite 8 hrs of sleep, yawning at 10/11 pm every evening even with a 1 hour nap during game night. Peeing 2x more than normal after drinking a glass of water. I have a weird stress pimple breakout but it’s clearing up and my skin is relatively nice-looking/clear now. Emotionally sensitive/cried when my hubs said my butt was bigger than his and I hissed back that I weighed less than 112 lbs and comments like that trigger anorexia. Eating chicken and a fried pickle, but no onions, as per standard PMS cravings but the hubs said if I don’t get my period by this Sat, I should probably take a preg test or something.
This is probably just PMS, right? I mean, we used condoms………I mean, hubs has T1/celiac and we were going to save a bit more money and get genetic testing before TTC next year…..

carmensandiego38 : I mean they are very similar to like 99% of my symptoms whilst pregnant. Worth some pee on a stick!

carmensandiego38 : If you think these could be pregnancy symptoms, the first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test.

The first signs I had of pregnancy was peeing more than normal and fatigue. Take a test.

carmensandiego38 : UPDATE: took a test today during lunch break: negative. (Though this is anywhere from 4-5 days before expected period). But I’ve still got weird sensitivity to smell. :S

Have you recently come off birth control or anything? I found when I came off that I suddenly had PMS symptoms when I had never noticed them before going on (like 10 years earlier), not sure if it was just my body regulating or if that’s my new normal, because I got pregnant about 6 months later and they were still sort of fluctuating by then.
You could also just have a bit of a stomach bug or something 🤷♀️ But it sounds like it could be too soon to say for sure

mrsnnn3 : Nope, never been on hormonal birth control. Just condoms. I did get a flu shot last week–could that explain the sensitivity to smell? I’ve never gotten that symptom post-flu shot before though. When I walked into our apt I noticed how sweet it smelled (the Air B&B just had so many odors in the kitchen it was making me sick).

If your symptoms were due to pregnancy your test would have been positive. You’re most likely just sick or something similar, hormones etc. Hope you feel better soon.
