The process may be unconscious, but believe me, the pregnant woman is conscious of feeling grossed out by many foods and smells! And in my experience, she may also be a little too vocal in letting her spouse know exactly how she feels.
Thanks for the recommend, I love those books too.

> Here's one: during the first month of pregnancy the woman's body lowers her immune system so that it doesn't reject the embryo (embryo as parasite!). The hormone also does this: it increases the woman's disgust level, making her emotional in excess of normal, so that she is more careful about germs than she was before she was pregnant. All unconscious.
