I feel like a hound dog.
When I'm not pregnant I'm very scent-conscious. When I walk into a home or a room or restaurant my first instinct it to take a deep breath and smell. My husband usually can tell I will start complaining about the smell of a restaurant by the wrinkling of my nose (if they allow smoking).
But now that my nose has gone on heightened awareness?! Almost everything stinks. I seriously want to just sit down and cry sometimes. I find myself cleaning constantly, trying to get rid of whatever slight offense is bothering me. And of course no one else can smell it.
I don't remember it being this bad in other pregnancies. The trash is constantly taken out, I carry the Lysol around with me, the cat box is scooped 2-3 times a day, I burn candles all day, wash clothes and sheets almost every other day. I just don't know what else I can do!
Sorry, this seems really whiny and the last thing I want to do is whine! I just can't stand stink, even when I'm not pregnant. Not being able to find a smell or get rid of one or finding new ones is just driving me batty.
I'm also frustrated because I feel like I'm doing it all here. I can't tell you the last time my husband washed a dish or threw some clothes in the washer or bathed the kids himself. I felt really sick yesterday and asked him to put Bumble Bee's pajamas on but he walked out of the room! In fact, I'm the one who cleaned the litterbox last night before bed because it was so stinky I couldn't go to sleep. I need help. I just feel like my battles are never-ending. And I feel like all my husband does is watch TV, get on the computer, or play his stupid games. We're all invisible here or something. UGH! He's not a bad guy but I'm about to blow and it isn't going to be pretty. HELP!!!
