When I was pregnant with Pierce, I had a couple of aversions. The worst was salmon. It took me several years after having Pierce to like salmon again (something I had previously loved). Aversions are kind of interesting. They go back to our hunter and gatherer days, and are our brains' ways of putting us off food that has made us feel sick in the past, so we will learn not to eat poisonous things.
When I was pregnant with the twins, I had an aversion to potato soup. I haven't quite regained that love, but I think I could eat it. Especially if it was made by my dad. Still, I would just prefer to eat other things.
When I was pregnant with all three boys, there was one thing I developed an aversion to that I still cannot stand to smell. I think it started with Pierce, but carried over into the pregnancy with the twins too.
Every morning, I got to work, and the first thing I smelled was my boss's coffee. Now I love the smell of coffee. And I enjoy drinking coffee. Especially flavored coffees, like salted caramel or this coffee a cocoa:
But my boss always made hazelnut coffee. Even today I can't stand the smell of hazelnut coffee. It's been ten years next month since my pregnancy with Pierce. Somehow, I am thinking this is one aversion that isn't ever going away. It's a shame really. I bet hazelnut coffee is good.
Readers, do you have any aversions?
