    Hi everyone,

    So it seems I have a new symptom today, after everything I eat I have this weird salty / sour taste in my mouth, its horrible :hissy:.

    Is this what people refer to as the metallic taste?! And has anyone started getting it around 9-10 weeks?

    And, the ultimate question, is there anything you can do about this???

    Thanks alot :) :hug:

    Thank you everyone!!!! :hugs:

    I thought that maybe it would miraculously go away today, but after eating my cereal this morning there it was again... its such a weird taste.

    Indeed after brushing my teeth and using alot of mouthwash it was gone (or masked, haha)...

    I read online yesterday that if you can stomach spicey foods then this helps, so I tried that last night and yes, the taste was gone but only for a short while until I ate something else.

    Also, I spoke with my colleague (who is 35 weeks pregnant) and she said she had the same thing and hated it, she couldnt enjoy any food at all... but yes it did go away after a while.

    :hug: to everyone and hope your all doing well :)

    I thought my nausea feeling had maybe gone away a bit today as I was soooo hungry this morning, however I am eating my usual crackers and cheese and it tastes SOOOO disgusting :hissy::hissy::hissy::hissy:

    How crap..... hungry but whatever I eat tastes horrible :(

    May try Gaviscon, but dont really want to take any medications.... at least I have some chewing gum in my bag.

    I have a horrid taste in my mouth as well which makes me feel really sick. I also find that if I eat bread or biscuits it leaves a yucky sweet taste in the back of my mouth. Cannot wait for that to stop.

    Sorry, old thread, I had to bump it, I have an awful taste in my mouth, like Im sucking a SUPER SOUR sweet, had it for about 3 hours since we ate tea, I tried Gaviscon but it only worked for half hour, and now its back.

    Feels almost like just before you are gonna be sick and your mouth waters, yet I dont feel sick.

    Any tips??? :flower:

    I have it too. Anytime I eat I gotta chew gum right after. It goes away in the second tri.

    I have that and it's horrible. I thought it was ginger ale doing it to me, but I get that taste even after I just brush my teeth. I hope it goes away soon!
