Oh, yeah, that's on the list too - reserve whiskey on the rocks for me, dirty martini for the midwife, and gin & tonic + super-nice cigars (I have a friend in the business) for DP

drinks once the wee one's here too - breast milk for him/her, homemade bubbly-water, unsweetened cranberry juice, and cocktails for the grown-ups!
I've never found eggs or salami to be a bothersome smell (unless the eggs are overcooked - THAT smell's a problem, pregnant or not!), maybe it's because my dad always ate salami on sourdough for breakfast when I was a kid... most of the smells I've found gross in pregnancy are chemicals, body odor, booze/cigarettes/vomit (why did I decide to arrive in New Orleans' French Quarter at 10am in my first trimester? - UGH!)... that type of thing. No food aversions (in fact, I could eat anything in SIGHT right now, even though I just finished my spinach and eggs. hehehe)
