    I loved this article, it had me laughing in my office with my receptionist looking over at me like I was crazy...lol

    I have to admit I have unfortunately had experience with symptom #3. Sneezing, laughing and m/s brings this symptom on for me...

    Glad you enjoyed, Jen! We need a good laugh once in a while...even if it is at ourselves!

    You remember that old saying "Smile, it makes people wonder what you're up to!" Still holds true.

    Thanks for posting this article. While recognizing that these unusual and unexpected symptoms exist is helpful, what I really appreciate is learning more about the underlying causes of them.

    It's good to know I'm not alone. I thought I was going crazy when every moment of my day was filled with me having to find a spot alone to pollute the air! And I do mean pollute because it is foul smelling! This never happened with my first child so I'm quite relieved to know it's normal!
    Starting 6th week but we still haven't told anyone because of a couple of thinking we were only for things to fall apart. We are visiting (1st) our dr this week and hope things go well.
