help me get rid of bad smell. it's 14 week of prgncy... can't tolerate smell of garlic onion oil spices... above all my husband is fond of non-vegetarian with full of garlic paste I just can't sleep with him in the same room no matter how many times he brushes his teeth. Day n night I keep spraying room freshener. slight smell makes me feel dizzy. I look mentally retarded these days. I don't let my cook prepare anything. even if she's preparing food the balcony door shud b open exhaust fan shut b on. ppl are fed up with my tantrums. :(

very common n natural we all have gone through it don't worry it will get settled in some days

tell your husband to Read articles on pregnant wife's tantrums n how to handle:)

Hey congrats first of all. You can try talking to ur hubby and make him understand that pregnancy can bring with itself certain likes and dislikes , cravings etc. tell him that ur unable to tolerate and if he can manage without it for sometime , it will help u and baby as it makes u feel very uncomfortable. have u tried talking to him?

Agree with Tahereem. hehe make him read some articles, educate him and he probably will start appreciating wha a pregnant woman goes through :)

What you are facing is completely normal. However, I really can't think of a solution to help you out. One of my friend would feel irritated and nauseating with the smell of dal during her pregnancy . The family stopped cooking dal till she was pregnant. Another colleague's wife couldn't tolerate any sound around.. For instance sound coming from mixer grinder, TV, vehicles on road, but even fan sound.. Slightest of sound would give her severe headaches as good as migraine. She had a tough time through out pregnancy but couldn't do much about it. All I want to assure you is that what you are facing is normal.

n ya congratulations darling!!!! enjoy Every moment this is a very special feeling and period.

oh yess neha poor guy has stopped repeating clothes until it's not washed.. web he cums back from a ofc he brushes his teeth also b4 sleeping.. he says I'll be left with no teeth after 9 months... lol.... tahereem during my last prgncy which of course dint continue for more than 5 months, I was a working lady. but now due to high risk I'm on bedrest for nine months so entire day I just fite or look for reason... but still my mom n hubby are cooperating.. don't know for how long..

thanx guys glad to know I'm not the only sufferer... you are right bhavana even I don't lyk loud sounds music TV action movies I have headaches every afternoon coz my mom watches all those Ekta kapoors melodramas... eeewwwww

And congratulations on your pregnancy. Take good care of your health. Don't feel guilty about what you are going through. It's just a matter of few months..

most of the husbands are not aware of pregnant mums emotional disturbances due to the change in hormones. Even some parents don't know about it.Its like you become a different person altogether.

my husband had a tough time with me . But in the second pregnancy I tried to control my emotions by going the spiritual way.

yoga also can help
