    4. Hubby Lover
    On the other hand, there are women who do the exact opposite. Judi Torres became more loving to her husband. "I didn’t want him to leave my side.". Work-at-home mom Chiz Mendiola is addicted to her husband's scent. "I love to get a whiff of his smell to the point that I didn't want him to take a bath. I found the soap and cologne scent too strong. I preferred his sweaty, musky, natural scent."

    5. Everyone's an Enemy
    Enterpreneur Michelle of Marikina swears she's always hot-headed, not different from Marielle Magramo who turns ill-tempered when she sees someone acting pretentious or classy. Faye Victoria is annoyed with the presence of her younger brother, husband included. "I don't want my brother near me, not even the sound of his voice. I would make my husband take a leave from work just because I said so." Faye reveals. English teacher Anya Abrera doesn't want anyone stealing the spotlight from her. She kiddingly relates, "Whenever anyone mentions that another woman is pregnant or getting married, I always think that 'Oh, she just copied me!' or 'She just did that because she knew about my plans!'".

    With all the discomforts a pregnant woman deals with, she'd (unintentionally) find an outlet no matter how unreasonable it may be. Venting and blogging are good outlets to express your feelings without causing further trouble.

    6. Scent Sensitive
    It's true that pregnant women have a heightened sense of smell, and hormones are to be blamed for this. Mikki Gujo would hate the smell of perfumes, fish, and of food being sauteed. Jo-ann Onate of Antipolo and Ericha Caraig-Arao, an MMDA rescue nurse would feel like throwing up at the scent of their own perfumes. After Ericha has given birth, that’s when she regretted giving her collection away. Anya's scent sense caused her to make the wrong choices. "Everytime I’d smell somebody else's mushroom soup during lunch break, I'm like, 'I want to have that too!', but when I buy one for myself, I don't find it as appetizing!"
