Most women experience a heightened sense of smell during pregnancy, with even the tiniest scent feeling like an all-out assault on their nostrils.

This only worsens when an unpleasant smell wafts into their airways, turning their stomach and causing them to feel physically sick for an extended period of time.

A pregnant woman ended up kicking her husband out their house after discovering his disgusting lie not only violated her nostrils but also cost her thousands in vet bills.

Venting to Reddit, the woman explained how her husband had been blaming his “stinky farts” on their dog, Jerry, and spent five weeks covering up the truth before coming clean.

She said: “We have this dog, Jerry. He is an adorable sweetheart. He has such a sweet and gentle disposition and he doesn’t have an unkind bone in his body. I love him dearly.

“A month ago, my husband, Jerry and I were eating dinner when suddenly I smelled something really disgusting. My husband instantly made a face so I knew it wasn’t just me.

“I am pregnant and my sense of smell has been a little sensitive in this time.

“I couldn’t stand the smell and left the room. Later in bed, my husband told me the dog farted.

“It honestly smelled a little like rotten eggs. I thought it was a one-off because the dog does fart (as do we) but a fart this stinky isn’t normal.”

Trying to forget about the “one-off smell”, the woman continued on her daily activities in the weeks after the incident – but at random times, she kept getting a whiff of the overpowering smell.

She tried lighting incense and candles around her home in an attempt to mask the smell but ended up giving up, claiming “nothing worked”.

“This whole time I thought it was the dog and said ‘OK, I’m taking him to the vet. A fart this stinky isn’t normal’. Through all this my husband kept silent,” she added.

“My vet recommended a diet change for the dog so I change the diet but the stink continued.

“I was losing my mind and my husband still kept his mouth shut. The vet was extremely confused and ordered a bunch of tests that cost a lot.

“All the tests showed that the dog was fine. I’m losing my mind here. My anxiety started kicking in – what if there’s something wrong with him? What if we lose him? I’m so stressed out.”

Spiralling into a pit of despair, the woman ended up bursting into tear at the thought something could be drastically wrong with her precious pooch.

Finally, after five long weeks, her husband confessed that he had been blaming his foul stench on the dog.

She added: “I lost it. I kicked him out of the house. He went to stay with his friends. All of our friends are on my side.

“To be clear, I didn’t mind he lied in the moment but he knew we were going to the vet, the vet was confused.

“He even went to the vet appointment with me. It takes him a full on panic attack and mental breakdown to say the truth?

“His mother, who normally thinks the sun shines out his a**, is on my side as well. She call him, in no uncertain terms, an idiot.”

After she cooled off a bit, she let her husband back into the house but told him to book an appointment with a doctor about his flatulence problems.

“He was recommended a diet change as well,” she added. “I told him, in no uncertain terms, that he has to pay me back my half of the vet bills out of his ‘fun money’.

“He’s agreed but isn’t really happy about it. I don’t particularly care about his happiness right now to be honest.”

Wanting to know whether she overreacted by making her husband pay his way out of the problem, she asked Reddit users to weigh in on her unusual situation.

One user said: “That was so cruel to the dog. How many times did the vet draw blood for these tests?

“And man, stressing out your pregnant wife for no reason is just putting your baby at risk.

“He should pay all of the vet costs. He needs to grow himself some maturity before the baby gets here.”

Another user added: “This was funny and sad at the same time. Is this the first time he has done something like this? His actions sound insane.”

A third said: “This too blows my mind. I’m usually not one to jump to conclusions and be dramatic, but who the hell lies to the person they married about a fart?

“Like if you can’t go to the bathroom or fart in front of your significant other unapologetically, then is it even a real relationship?

“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I wouldn’t marry someone I don’t feel that comfortable with. That sounds miserable having to feel like you need to hide that.”
