It looks like the chlorine smell and taste I’ve been experiencing is from the prenatal vitamins. The nurse at my PCP’s office wanted me to not take my prenatal today to see what happens, and, amazingly, the chlorine sensation is gone. The nurse says it’s likely from all the iron in the prenatals. Maybe I’m not used to so much iron at one time since I don’t eat meat. Who knows. At least now I know. I can deal with it for seven more months.
