I have a horrible taste in my mouth. I am constantly drinking water, brushing my teeth, chewing gum, and eating mints, but nothing has helped. Does any one else have this, I don't remember it with my first pregnancy?!

As a dental hygienist, I see most pregnant woman have increased bleeding and bacterial growth in their mouth. Make sure that you have excellent oral hygiene by flossing daily and using an antibacterial mouth rinse (like listerine) 2 times a day. This will decrease the bacteria and hopefully the bad taste. Try to brush your tongue as well (which I know is hard!!) If this does not help, it may be coming from your stomach.... If you have acid reflux or indigestion all of the time. If you still have your tonsils it could be food getting trapped in the tonsil tissue. Try the oral care first, if nothing subsides, I would definately mention it to your MD.

I have a prblem with the taste of my saliva that I just want to spit it out all the time.I tried doing many things and I just ended up more bloated :). Sucking on a slice of fresh pineapple helped though. I get some taste from the fruit plus a little juice to satisfy my need to drink. It satisfies my need to spit for awhile. I've always had a bowl of pineapple slices in the fridge for when the urge comes up.Doc says it's the hormones that caused this funny 'taste'.

Thank you all for your suggestions. I checked my blood suger to be on the safe side and it was normal. I definately get indigestion, I've learned no chili for me, so this may be the cause. Thanks again!
