The (not-so) joy's of pregnancy...

If I could complain of just ONE thing about this pregnancy so far...it wouldn't be how tired I am. Or how my clothes are starting to become tighter...or how I feel the tiniest sick in the afternoons...

It would be...MY SENSE OF SMELL. G.A.G. I've always enjoyed my smell sense. Smell can always take me back to fond memories of my childhood, my 1st grade classroom (NOT so fond), a great dinner waiting for me, and all these great little things.

NOW, my nose is my worst enemy. Walk past dirty dishes...Smell them. Smell the air freshener in the bathroom... Laundry...yuck. Walk past the trash, Gag. Open my fridge...fall over and die. By FAR, the fridge gets to me the most. BY far. I've tried everything.

Last week...couldn't even do DISHES because of the smell. (those who know me know I LOVE to do dishes.) Walk past the trash and BEG Wil to take it out. His response...Rachel, I just took it out an hour ago.

BUT I can still smell it...

This week, I asked my sister to come clean my house for me and I'll pay her...Just waiting for her to show up!

It has come to that imperative point where I need to clean out my fridge. I just can't bare to do it.

Til then...here's to the invention of nose plugs...

Ahhh...the joys of pregnancy. Ordinarily my nose is SUPER NOSE. I have very keen sense of smell; Pregnancy makes it bionic. ICK!

For a while I couldn't even stand what Lance smelled like...and he smells good :) lol. pregnancy. I would sleep with a swipe of Vicks on my top lip so I could bear to be in the room. You could always try that trick for tasks you have to do but can't stand. I heard that's what people do who work in a morgue. if it's good enough to keep the smell of death out of someone's nose it seemed like a good idea to me for other stuff :) lol (assuming you can stand the smell of vicks that is...)

Jamie...I'm going to try that...

Vicks...reminds me of my grandma! And I think I can handle that smell.
