Apparently increased saliva can be a symptom of pregnancy, particularly in the early days? I get this (fortunately only occasionally, so may be to do with sleeping position) and it's a real pain! No advice, but sympathies!
Ahhh! Me too! I didn't even think it could be to do with the pregnancy, but come to think of it, it started about the same time. Glad it's not just me. I tend to lie with my head in my hand so i've been waking up with a hand full of dribble... Doh!
Although, I've done it all my life , but it is definitely worse now (am 28+4) and am locked in a vicious cycle of sleep - dribble- wake up for a wee--- notice mouth is dry---- swig loads of water---sleep---dribble---wake up for wee... and so on.
Yeah, some of the hormones in your body that have done into overdrive also stimulate the saliva gland, so most pregnant women have an excess of saliva - however, my copy of WTEWYE says that it usually goes after the first 12 weeks.
I don't think my hormones kicked in until about 6 weeks ago then! (I'm 40+4) I only started dribbling and going to the toilet more often at about 35 weeks! I also didn't have any itching until about 4 weeks ago.
I'm glad there's so many of us that have this - I was starting to wonder if there was something wrong with my face in the nights!
