Things taste different...

I don't remember this happening with my 1st DD's pregnancy, the only thing with hers was that I couldn't stand the smell of Subway or the thought of eating it. I find with this pregnancy my tastes are changing. Foods taste different and things that weren't even spicy to me before seem super spicy now. An example is mustard. I used to love this mustard brand French's and now when I put it on something it tastes pretty spicy to me. And other things that were very spicy for me before like hot salsa, are now not as spicy or even mild tasting. I notice other foods I just don't enjoy anymore because the taste seems off. I'm hoping if this is a pregnancy thing it will go back after!

I think that it is a pregnancy thing.

I know what you mean! To me everything tastes like garlic. Eww! It started out one day with my KFC tasting to garlicy and at work a few days ago I was eating ice chips and spit them out because they smelled and tasted like garlic. I can't wait until I can eat something that doesn't taste like that again. Just a few more months!

The only thing that has changed in taste for me is peanut butter. I used to love eating it, but it doesn't taste the same way anymore. It's weird!
