I'm 9 1/2 weeks pregnant. I am suffering from horrible nausea-duh, but also AWFUL headaches. My boss has already forced me to cut down at work, which I can't really afford, but since I've called in so much lately i guess is only fair. Also, I can't sleep in the same bed as my boyfriend because he smells so much. Everything smells awful. His breath, the sheets, the refrigerator, the cat box, I even think I smell bad. Does this go away soon? Anyone else have headache remedies?

i feel for you meghan.....i'm a ma__sage therapist and for my whole first trimester i was so nauseated by everyone and their nasty smells....everyone still smells to me (that symptom stays with you) but i no longer want to puke when i put my hands on someone or have to smell their breath when i'm giving them a scalp ma__sage! actually the other night i told my husband that his neck smelled really bad and it was bothering me and so the next day he said "honey, i scrubbed my neck for you" i'm almost 16 weeks.

I have the exact same problem everything smells to me...i mean everything!!! I asked the doctor and she said, if anything, its going to get worse lol....as for the headache..the only thing that helps me is drinking a huge gla__s of water really fast..

Hey Megan I know exactly how you feel! Everything smells horrible! I had very severe nausea...went to the hospital a couple of times for IVs and drugs....but things are definitly better now. I am 15 weeks and the nausea has gotten loads better but the smells are still horrible. I promise you it will get better....... I had bad head aches also and found that I needed more sleep! So now I am a loser and go to bed at around seven! But anyway I hope you feel better soon and just know everything you feel is normal!

I'm really worried about what this is going to do to my relationship with my boyfriend. No s_x obviously and he just reeks to me of bad breath and if he has a gla__s of wine or beer- of seeping alcohol. How can I even kiss him? My sister called me to ask to borrow one of my shirts and I told her that she could but that I was going to wash it because it reeks of BO. She came and got it and emailed me that she thought it smelled like flowers!!

I'm the same way....my husband sleeps in a different bedroom now. I can't stand a lot of the smells! I also have a headache and it seems to be everyday. I just deal with it.

I don't thave this problem with people, but wiwth food. I can't eat when we go out to dinner because of all the nasty smells. I often cook a tv dinner and then one wiff and barff. I am 14 weeks not and it has not gone away, just gotten worse. But I have learned to not smell as much. i just breath through my mouth. I also got flavered chapstick I like and put tht on thick when we go out to dinner.

I tell my husband every night to move over cause his breath smells like poop! LOL I can't stand the smell of ANYTHING right now. And, what makes that worse is I smell EVERYTHING right now. Go figure.

I'm serious. PLEASE tell me the smell thing goes away or subsides in the second trimester. I smelled my boyfriends rank breath which completely saturated the room wafting out from underneath the guest room door (I won't let him sleep with me) this morning. I had to cover my face until I left the house and I held my breath a lot. I'm at work now and I still smell it.

lol...megan the smell thing does NOT go away for the entire pregnancy....however the nausea and the headaches will go away....try putting on a nice smelling chapstick or put some lavendar oil right under your nose or peppermint oil that may help....or make your boyfriend gargle with listerine! lol

I had the smell problem with my first pregnancy really bad, it subsided in the second trimester however. This time I don't have issues hardly at all. I don't like the smell of coffee or BBQ but it's not like last time when my hubbys cologne made my stomach turn! maybe I will have a girl this time since this pregnancy is so different?!?! :)

This is my 3rd baby and I have had this with each one. My dh is a smoker and I can't stand his breath. He smokes outside but it just reaks off of him when he comes in, I make him sit far away from me. I truely can't stand it...and it doesn't go away or atleast it didn't for me.
