Is there onion in my carrot cake or am I pregnant?

#Rants and Raves#got pee sticks?

Did I tell you that when I was pregnant, everything smelled like onion? My friend’s shampoo was onion. My husband seeped onion into our room at night while he breathed and I’d come in from the bathroom and gag from the smell.  The dish soap was onion.  The laundry, fresh out of the dryer, smelled like onion. I gagged from all the onion smell all the time. I grew to hate onions. I still cant eat them.


  1. You know, maybe that’s why I’ve been thinking for the last couple of months that my house smells like fart.  Everybody SWEARS I’m wrong, but EVERYTHING either smells like fart or bad milk.

  2. Oh Leslie…I’m so sorry.  Sorry that everything smells like onion, that you’ve gained four pounds instead of losing four, and that you had to call in the reinforcements.  But that just goes to show that you’re a KICK ASS mom!  Poor Mr. Flinger having to hold down the fort.  I shouldn’t be smirking, should I?  You go girl!  That is…after you can stand up on your own again!  Get better soon!

  3. Jen, that is EXACTLY what I was thinking.


    Again…. wink (ok, maybe once in like a year or two when we’re ready for another one, but really, who needs sex unless it’s for procreation? Seriously..)

  4. Oh, Leslie! Sorry your puking! Maybe the carrot was growing next to an onion. Could you be pregnant? When were you guys going to try for another one? GET BETTER GIRL! Glad you called your MIL now you can get a little rest:0)

  5. Poor Les!  I am sooooo sorry.  Anything I can do?  Smart girl to call the MIL.  Seriously, we moms need to do better at recognizing our limits and calling for reinforcements.  I have court tomm am, but will be on in the afternoon if you need commiseration.  I won’t call because I would hate to wake you uP!

  11. Sorry you aren’t well. Just curious if onion still smell like onion!

  12. I still have the onion problem. John has to brush his teeth 10x a day to even come near me.
    So pregnant eh? Could it be? Something may be brewing over here at the Grotegut’s too…maybe another internet love match for the unborn fetuses?

  13. Well?  what’s the verdict?

    By Charla on 2005 06 24

  14. Ok you and Rach - WHAT IS GOING ON?!? Troublemakers…
    Hope you feel better soon! Sick is no fun and I totally understand how it is when you are sick and no one helps out alot. Hell the world crashes down when G is sick but since I don’t get sick very often I can’t rest. Ok I am not a nap person so he doesn’t seem to understand that when I do take a nap I don’t feel well.
    Back to my point - FEEL BETTER SOON! Glad MIL is close to help + the bonus of getting a little free house cleaning!
