Am 23 weeks and am suffering with bad taste in my mouth pretty much constantly, I haven't lost my taste, food still tastes fine but its after I've eaten it occurs, I am constantly sucking mints and drinking water but it doesn't help much.
Is this common? Any suggestions on what could help? Does it go away after birth??
I didn't have this with my DD who is 23months so am a little clueless
Thanks smile

What kind of taste is it? I had a weird chemical-type taste in the back of my mouth for a few weeks around the same time as you are now - it went away again of its own accord after a few weeks but it was v weird for a while.

Only taking folic acid at moment, it's not metallic just not nice like when you wake in the morning before you've brushed your teeth blush might try asking my midwife on Thursday when I see her as it's getting on my nerves now sad thanks x

I have the same for last 3 weeks and am only 12 weeks. I had a metallic taste but now it's just horrible - I don't want to kiss the OH sad. I'd be interested what the midwife says. I've taken to carrying a small bottle of mouthwash around me with as feel like I want to brush my teeth constantly but then the clean feeling goes really quickly.
