OMG - this sounds like a West Indian wives tale - my mum in law and some of my friends swear that when you are pregnant your nose gets wider!!!!
I personally have never noticed it happening to me or anyone else!!!!

I don't think my nose is wider but I'm permanently congested. I have to let the steam from the shower help unblock it every morning and then I get a nose bleed. Apparently it's because of all the extra blood we have in our systems when pregnant. So if any midwife tries to tell me I need iron tablets this time there'll be trouble!! There is no way I'm taking those again. Sorry if tmi!

I too have pregnancy nose and had it with the other 4 too! I'm not congested but my nose feels puffy, runny and I do get the odd nose bleed too. All part n parcel of pregnancy I'm afraid lol but worth it in the end hey!

I had the enhanced sense of smell thing in the early days, seems to have worn off now but at first I hated going round the supermarket because everything smelt so strong. And I have the permanent congestion, but then I always get that in the winter anyway.
I never heard of your nose looking any different in pregnancy though- how strange!

i have an enhanced sense of smell and every morning I have to unblock it, but not aware of it looking any different.

Mine doesn't look different (yet!) but I can smell everything soooo much stronger. This morning I could tell my son had put his deodorant on and he was in his own room with the door shut!
I hate the smell of cooking, tea.. well just about anything.

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
