Maybe cravings isn’t the right word but my sense of smell since becoming pregnant has changed and everything smells different to me now…
Now that I’m in my third trimester I’m definitely nesting which means I’m cleaning a lot! As I clean I’m getting whiffs of these cleaning products that I never would of even thought twice about. Don’t go thinking I’m sniffin’ these things like glue and getting high because I’m not. I just think they smell really good and just because I have made a list for you fine people of things that smell so damn good to me right now:
- Lemon scented Lysol wipes
- Brand new box of Mr. Clean erasers
- My laundry soap- I don’t know what the name of the scent because I never thought twice about it. I smelled it once when I originally bought it but now when I’m doing laundry I LOVE the smell so much i’ll leave the laundry room door open so it fills the house.
It’s not just cleaning supplies:
- Old books- oh my god really though does anything smell better than an old book?
- Paper- any paper
- Toilet paper
- Wood, that Home Depot lumber department, I could stand there for HOURS
Its’ not just smelling, I only bring up smell because that’s the biggest difference from my last pregnancy to this one. My last pregnancy my food cravings was Doritos Taco from Taco Bell and now I LOVE Pericarp and pith or as my friend Ashely called it Satan’s butt/ass. What is that you might ask?
Definition: the white part of the orange, technically called the pericarp, has almost as much vitamin C as does the orange fruit. The pericarp includes the white, thready material that is called the pith.
I literally cant get enough of it. I will eat six to eight of those small oranges or cuties right before bed and when I peel them I try really hard to not take off the white part. If I do accidentally take off the white part I will still eat it. A treat within a treat. So if you know I’m coming over to your house don’t be surprised if I’m in the corner sniffing your old books. So instead of hide yo kids, hide yo wife its more like hide yo old books, hide yo lumber
