Sudden scent sensitivities could be a clue that you’re expecting a child. If the garbage in your home is suddenly unbearably odorous or the smell of a fragrant food makes you sick, you could be pregnant. All five of your senses become heightened during pregnancy because of changes in estrogen levels.
Other sensitivities may become apparent along with the scent. If drinking a hot or cold beverage makes your teeth hurt out of the blue or your gums become puffy and start bleeding, consider taking a pregnancy test. As we’ve mentioned before, you can develop dysgeusia and begin tasting metal. Your vision can become fuzzier than before, leading to you needing glasses or contacts. Additionally, ringing in the ears can occur because of your hormones.
