Confession Time: I’m Really Not Into Smells Right Now, You Guys
Rachel Darnall

I’m showing this to my husband because he honestly thought I was crazy. Do you also have a hard time eating off of utensils because they smell like dirty, hot metal and dish soap? That was the worst!

Find an essential oil that smells nice and put a dab on your sleeve, then smother yourself with it whenever you can’t handle the odor of the space you’re in. Full disclosure: I use that trick now (at the grocery store fish aisle, at the flea market, in my dog-smelling kitchen in the humid summer…) but I never tried it when I was pregnant.

Only, what, seven more months left? I wish you seven months of pure, fresh (but not ozone-smelling) air!
