I'm going through something right now that is creeping me out and to most of you I will sound crazy, no doubt.

I'll start by saying I don't believe in ghosts. I'm a rational, 39 year old woman who is extremely skeptical and the type of person who needs to 'to see it to believe it.'

I gave birth to my daughter 2 weeks ago. When I was about 3 weeks away from giving birth, I would smell cigarette smoke in our house (we don't smoke). At the time, I put it down to a weird pregnancy thing - after all, pregnancy hormones can cause some weird symptoms, but the smell was so strong - as if someone was sporadically blowing smoke in my face. This never happened before then.

Now that my daughter is here, the smoke smell lingers everywhere, especially over her crib. My mother in law was recently here and she could smell it too. As a matter of fact, I purposely didn't bring it up to her and she was the one to bring it up and complain about the smell. My sister in law also asked about it without my mentioning it. My husband can't smell it.

I have no explanation for this - all I know is that the smell is the same smell of the roll up cigarettes my father smoked before he died in 1998. It isn't constant - just occurs randomly throughout the day/night. one minute I can't smell a thing and the next, the air is heavy with the scent of my dad's rolling tobacco..right over / near my baby's crib.
