    metal taste is normal and can occur from 3 weeks pregnant

    headache is also normal and again can occur early, occasionally, along with other symptoms it can indicate anaemia

    You can take paracetamol without hurting baby but don't take any of the other drugs you can get for headaches, a cool flannel may also help, and being in a dark room and trying to sleep

    The taste I'm not sure if anything can get rid of it, but theoretically citrus should calm it a little

    Hope this helps x

    Just keep an eye on the headaches hun, if it doesn't go with paracetamol then ring the midwife and ask them to do your BP (Pre-eclmpsia)

    Not sure what the metal taste is, i bet its awful

    I get headaches all the time. Some times I go a few days without one, but when I get it, it's here to stay for atleast a week at a time. The metal taste you say you have, are you sure your gums arent bleeding? because bleeding gums also taste like you have been sucking on a penny- not like I suck on pennies very often lol, but you know what I mean.
    Next time you get this weird taste, spit it out and see if theres any color to it because for the last month or so, my gums have been so swollen, gone really soft and always bleed.

    I'm sure its nothing for you to worry about. I mean I have raging headaches sometimes, so much so that they make me wanna puke. I told 3 dr's about it, they all claimed it was normal, sop hey ho, I kinda just 'let it be' :)

    Towards the end of my friends pregnancy she had such bad headaches all on one side and all down her face she could hardly move .. just had to lie in a dark room but couldnt even lift her head at all. Doctors never found anything wrong with her although was very worrying at the time and then they just disappeared. Lasted about 2 weeks when she was about 8 months pg.
