I am 11 weeks pregnant and always seem to be spitting. I know it sounds awful but I just cant stop. Any help would be great.

I think that it is because you, during pregnancy you produce alot more saliva than you normally do, and you may still have that matallic taste going on. Its pretty normal, My sister just carried a box of tissue around so that she could spit in it.

Are you spitting because you have more saliva in your mouth than usual? I have that problem. I seem to have so much that I can't swallow it all the time and I keep a bucket close to spit in. When I do try to swallow it almost gags me. I feel so yucky! One thing that helps is chewing gum. I am 12 weeks pregnant and this started for me about 3 weeks ago. Someone else told me that tart lemonade helps but not for me, it makes me queasy. I also keep tissues with me when I am out to spit in. I don't want anyone to see me spit like a man! I hope it ends soon.

Hi ladies! I am 20 weeks along and I was so happy to read your entries and know that I am not the only one! I was spitting constantly for the first 14 or 15 weeks of my pregnancy but then it started to taper off.... thank goodness! Now I hardly ever have that "too much spit" feeling and chewing bubble gum does seem to help.

Eat peppermints and chew gum

Water helps alot it gets rid of the bitter taste because juice or anything sweet will leave a sour or horrible taste in your mouth.

suck on lemon drops, that's what helped me.

Four years ago, I spitted up until I pushed my daughter out and right there on the delivery table that's when it stopped! I am now 14 wks pregnant and spitting all over again!!! I HATE IT!! I've tried everything but nothing helps!


Yuri - April 13th, 2005 2:26 PM

I spit every minute... i am right now 17 wks, and it is just so disgusting and embarrassing... but for the past week i have been chewing on Halls cough drops, the Spearmint flavor, and it helps sooo much... but now my teeth are starting to hurt... =0(

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that keeps Kleenex everywhere. I literally get sick at my stomach some mornings due to this! It's terrible...!

Sandra - August 11th, 2005 1:06 PM

My neighbor stopped spitting at 3-4 months for both pregnancies. Myself, this is my second pregnancy, 8 mths pregnant and still spitting and know that once I push the baby out the spitting will only then stop as it did in my first. Sorry. No Help!

I have one week to go before my due date and I have spit constantly through out my entire pregnancy. It was very depressing at first and I barely left the house because of it. I realized that I could not spend the whole 9 months confined to my house so I started spitting into a little bottle that you can't see through. It's very nondescript and I am discrete about it in public. Most people think I'm taking sips out of something. It's annoying to carry a bottle to spit in all the time but I got used to it. I just hope that the spitting ends as soon as I give birth.


Marissa - August 30th, 2005 9:34 PM

ahhh I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling like this I'm 23 years old this is my first pregnancy, I've asked friends and family members if they've ever spit during their pregnancy and they all said no I was starting to think something was wrong. Now I know I'm not the only one going through this I'm 11 weeks now. I'm constantly spitting, it started for me just about a week n a half ago. I hope its not like this my whole pregnancy. I found that chewing gum or eating a lemon helps me. We can get through this Ladys!!!!


spitomania - September 6th, 2005 9:00 AM

I am sooooooooooo glad I am not the only one, this is the most disgusting thing to go through!!!! I have just started my 10th week, and it is my third pregnancy, although the other 2 ended unfortunately in miscarriages! but my mom had the spitting thing too, it drives you and everyone around u MAD!!! i really hope it ends faaaaaaaaaast!!! as long as you chew something, it helps, but only whilst u r chewing, the minute u stop, u r spitting again!!!!!!!!! I carry a cup everywhere I go, and it is dreadful!!!! I feel for you all, and hope it stops for you all very soon. Hope you all have safe pregis too!!!
