    Default Taste Buds?? Scared!!

    Hi all,

    I am just over 12 weeks pregnant and today for lunch I had a tomato and cheese toasted sandwich from a cage near work. It tasted fine an i got to almost the end of it and tool a bite it it tasted a bit like floor cleaner or some sort of chemical. Could this be my taste buds going crazy or should I be worried? This is y first pregnancy so I am a little scared

    It could actually be your sense of smell. It's common for your sense of smell to increase to a crazy level. All 3 of my pregnancies, that has been one of my first symptoms - it's so strong it's like a super power, and has the unpleasant side effect of sometimes "tasting" what you are smelling. I would wash my hands, and then feel like I'd been eating soap when I smelt them afterwards. Couldn't go past certain shops because of the awful smells.
    On the flip side, if what you ate actually did have any chemicals in it, the amount would be very, very minimal for you to not notice until the end, so wouldn't be harmful to baby... just unpleasant for you.

    Thank you so much this is my first baby so I just get a little scared of something doesn't feel right. It's the first time something has tasted horrible since I have been pregnant so maybe I was just shocked by it.
