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

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 Mother-In-Law 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 Darling Husband 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.
